It takes 3 to 4 days to cover the 62 km walking trail, Grand Sentier de la Côte Bleue. The trail includes 17 internal circular itineraries from 2 to 12 km with different gradients. Most of the itineraries are accessible from railway stations:  Niolon, Ensuès le Redonne, Carry le Rouet, Sausset les Pins and La Couronne.

The 90 km walking trail, Sentier Entre Mer et Etang, overlooks the Mediterranean surrounded by hills and the banks of Étang de Berre, on the outskirts of the Camargue. It links three communes: Martigues, Port de Bouc and St Mitre les Remparts. The trail includes 8 internal circular walks from 4 to 14 km with different gradients.

The diversity of trails satisfies all types of walkers, from families to serious hikers.
