Description

On the Bestouan peninsula, the Little Prince trail pays tribute to Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's book, the second best-selling and most translated book in the world after the Bible. This is a family-friendly tour.

Good to know about access:
During the tourist season (between Easter and All Saints' Day), we recommend parking your car at the Gorguettes parking lot at the entrance to Cassis, then taking the shuttle bus to the Calanques, stop: "Presqu'île". Information on timetables is available at: www.cassis.fr/vie-pratique/les-transports/les-transports-urbains/les-navettes-parking-relais-des-gorguettes/


The tour is easy on the eyes, even if it does include a few steps cut into the rock.

Welcome to the Presqu'île de Port-Miou (1), which runs alongside the calanque of the same name (2). The walk starts at the junction of Avenue Notre-Dame and Avenue de la Plage Bleue, where the Parc National des Calanques welcome sign is located. Just follow the enamelled plaques, which provide information on the history of the area and the Calanques (3), (4).
Walk along, keeping the bottom of the Port-Miou calanque on your right. At some point, you'll reach a fork in the road (5).
Keep to the right to complete a small loop which will bring you back to this point and take you around Bestouan (6).
Continue on your right towards a chapel (7).
Continue past the tennis courts to reach the esplanade with its panoramic view of Cap Canaille (8).
Lean over the wall to catch a glimpse of the large rocky slabs of Plage Bleue (9). Take time to admire the beauty of the glistening Mediterranean Sea, and let the words of the Little Prince resonate within you: "You can only see well with your heart; what is essential is invisible to the eye". (10)

Complete your loop by passing under the tall pines of the presqu'île parking lot. Continue straight ahead to reach the junction of Avenue de la Plage Bleue and Avenue Jean-Jacques Garcin. Turn left to return to the starting point.
