Between the Calanques & Cap Canaille

The busy and attractive fishing port of Cassis near Marseille is beautifully located between the Massif des Calanques to the west and Cap Canaille to the east.

Cassis is very popular in season due to its three sheltered beaches. The resort is also known for the white stone quarried nearby used for such projects as the Suez Canal.

The Calanques

From Cassis it is possible to take boat trips to view the amazing Calanques from the sea. Alternatively, you need to take one the (very challenging) footpaths.


Also worth doing, if you have your own transport, is the Corniche des Crêtes. Moreover, from here you get a fabulous view of Cassis and the Calanques (morning is best)
