A Winter Walk in the En-Vau Cove

The renowned En-Vau cove, or calanque, near Cassis, offers a unique and breathtaking view over the landscape of Marseille. Overlooking the sea and surrounded by cliffs, it enjoys an idyllic setting. Let’s take a look.

Located an hour’s walk from Port Pin, the En-Vau cove is also accessible by car or canoe from the beach of Cassis. Along the route, everything is in place so that visitors can fully enjoy the view that offers itself up to them. For those who prefer to continue by foot, parking spaces near the Col de la Gardiole are available to drivers, who can then use the trails to get as close as possible to the cliff edge. In the distance, the landscape is magical: turquoise sea, gazebos, rocks... You’re facing a real little paradise at close to 400 meters of altitude.

Upon arrival, the pebble beach will leave you speechless. Wild, and nestled at the bottom of the cliffs, it calls for calm and tranquility, even if it’s true that tourists often flock there. If it’s very popular in the summer, this walk in the En-Vau cove is also lovely in winter; each season the panorama offers a surprising spectacle that should not be missed.

Exotic and picturesque, the En-Vau cove is also a great playground for thrill seekers and climbers, who will certainly find what they are looking for. Beginners and experienced sportspeople alike are invited to climb the many paths plunging over the sea. It’s enough to leave you dazed and dreamy!
