Fire risk: Calanques open or closed ?

Every year, from June 1st to September 30th, access to the Bouches-du-Rhône forest areas is regulated by prefectural decree in order to protect visitors and nature from the fire risk. Every day, between 5:00 pm and 6:00 pm, the prefectural services evaluate and communicate the state of the fire risk for each forest for the next day. In case of red risk, the access to the massifs is forbidden.

Concerning the Calanques National Park, in case of a "red day" (journée rouge):

  •     The access to the Calanques National Park is forbidden by land.
  •     The "route des Crêtes" is closed.
  •     The visit by boat remains possible but any landing is strictly forbidden.
  •     The visit of the Frioul archipelago remains possible.
