Stretching over more than 12 miles of Mediterranean coastline, the Calanques around Marseille are unique in France. They provide both natural resources and a wonderful setting for outdoor activities. They have enjoyed special protection since the creation of Calanques National Park in April 2012, the only National Park in Europe to mix land, sea and suburban areas.
