East of Calanque de Morgiou, the stone-sculptured coast brings you to three remote calanques : En-Vau, Port-Pin and Port-Miou. Calanque d’En-Vau has a pebbly beach and emerald waters encased by cliffs. Its entrance is guarded by the Doigt de Dieu (God’s Finger), a giant rock pinnacle. A steep three-hour marked trail leads from the car park (closed July to mid-September) on the Col de la Gardiole to En-Vau. The slippery and sheer descents into En-Vau are for the truly hardcore only.

Approaching En-Vau from the east, it is a solid 1½-hour walk on the GR98 from Calanque de Port-Miou , immediately west of Cassis. En route you pass the neighbouring Calanque de Port-Pin , a 30-minute walk from Port-Miou.

Cassis’ tourist office distributes free maps of the walking trails.
