The village of Cassis: A jewel at the gates of Marseille
Plage de la Grande Mer beach stretches out under a rocky outcrop holding up the ancient castle. The fishing port is home to the Bateliers de Cassis, hosting guided boat tours of the Calanques fjords. Winding its way between Cassis and La Ciotat, the Route des Crêtes crosses the summit of one of Europe’s highest maritime cliffs, Cap Canaille, adorned with magnificent reds and ochres. The view is simply sublime.
