Beautiful formation/fjords just outside of Marseilles. According to Joakim's parents who live in Cannes this place is well worth seeing.

Les Calanques is a must see if you are staying in the Provence region. And the waters are quite fresh, even in the peak of summer as there are some natural sources of fresh water. With crystal blue waters and iconic scenes, you can't miss les calanques. It is quite popular in the summer so turn up…

A National Park next to the city. You can even go by bus. Choose bus 20 from Castellane to Luminy - best for stunning views of the Calanques or 19 to Pointe Rouge and change to 20 for Callelongue - best to be as close to sea as possible - warning: this route is more touristy

Ideal for walk and swim! It takes a few hill walks and rocky scrambles, but your reward is staggering scenery, rare flora and fauna and a cool, refreshing dip in some of Europe’s prettiest waters.

Park
“From the Réformé church (up the Canebière) you can follow the Boulevard Longchamp where you can see nice example of old upper-class buildings to arrive to Palais Longchamp. The palais is worth visiting though it won't take you long. You can visit the "musee des beaux arts" as well as the natural history museum.”
