It is difficult to say which beach is the most beautiful in Europe without regretting it as soon as you pronounce the name of the chosen one. In this case, I have opted for Calanque d’en Vau, which is not nearly as popular as Ses Illetes (Formentera) or La Pelosa (Sardinia), which are two of those that usually appear in the rankings of spectacular beaches.
It is in Cassis, about half an hour from Marseille. It is the best example of the Côte d’Azur for its spectacular scenery, although unfortunately not everyone can get there without effort. In fact, there are even people who have gotten lost along the way and have not been able to set foot on its shore.
A show not to be missed
Its steep ravines, which show off the typical Mediterranean vegetation that so many fall in love with, are a warning of how difficult it can be to get to kiss the water, which by the way is a turquoise color that speaks for itself.
You choose if you want to arrive, for which you will need about two hours of time that I recommend spending very early in the morning (to avoid the heat and to be among the first to arrive). The other option, much less affordable at an economic level, is to approach the beach in a boat.
Once there, seeing that its waters are calm and crystal clear, the most normal thing is that you want to take your snorkeling equipment to contemplate the beauty of the seabed. You will realize that it has been worth breaking a sweat to reach what is surely the most fascinating and hidden beach in France, where there is certainly no trace of beach bars.
