Calanque d'en Vau

 

The calanques are deep narrow inlets, like fiords, in the rocky cliffs... there are twenty four of them along the coast over the 22 kl between Cassis and Marseilles.

 

This is Calanque d'en Vau... it was the grandest one that we visited due to its high cliffs.

At the end of this calanque is a pebble beach, and like the other two calanques of Cassis, it is uninhabited.
