Meet us at “Castellane” station (both metro lines, 1 and 2, get there) to start our tour along Marseille’s “end of the world” !

First of all, we’ll take a bus to get to la “Madrague de Montredon” and then another one to reach the very end of Marseille, at the Calanque of “Callelongue” (we know it might be a lot of bus journey to get here but, believe us, it is REALLY worth it). On arrival, get ready to hick for some minutes in order to reach the “Semaphore”, a great spot to admire the sea and the Calanques National Park with its wild islands right in front of us.

After hicking around the semaphore we’ll get back to Callelongue and start heading towards the authentic fishermen village called “Les Goudes”. Of course, we will not take the easy way but the interesting one. We’ll walk on the typical limestone-made hills to visit the remains of one of the many german Blockhaus built during the Second World War, testifying the prescence of Marseille during these hard times.

Going down the hill we’ll reach “La Baie des Singes” and its tiny, cristaline water beach from where we’ll have the best view over the “Maïre” island before getting to the famous port of “Les Goudes”. We’ll take time to stroll around talking about the history of the place and stoping at some spots to get the best pictures over the sea, Marseille, and the surrounding hills.

After the tour, your guide well be able to take you back to your place or if you’d rather stay, we can give you the best pieces of advice where to have a great swim and even do some snorkeling.

Meeting point: “Castellane” station. Several buses and Marseille’s two metro lines will get you there. The guide will be waiting for you with a light blue umbrella at the metro exit in front of the Burger King.
