Calanque d'En Vau
Marseille - Cove
La plus spectaculaire avec son écrin de falaises blanches, abruptes et déchiquetées. C'est le lieu privilégié des amoureux de l'escalade, amateurs ou confirmés, qui trouvent ici la sensation unique de pouvoir grimper sur des parois entre ciel et mer.
C'est aussi l'une des préférées des baigneurs par son eau d'une transparence inouië.
