Its legendary sunset is a daily spectacle!
To the east of the village and our hotel in the centre of Cassis, Cap Canaille, one of the highest sea cliffs in Europe, plunges into the Mediterranean. The Massif, listed in 1986, is a spectacular rocky landscape with deep valleys overlooking the sea, and amazing ochre pudding stone (a conglomerate of stones and compacted sand) landscapes carved out by erosion.
The Route des Crêtes tourist road, which is 15km long, winds along the Massif and joins up with La Ciotat. Particularly enjoyed by bikers and cyclists, it offers spectacular views over the Gulf of Cassis, the calanques, the Riou archipelago in Marseille harbour to the west and Var to the east.The well-equipped car parks let you stop and spend a moment to admire this beautiful landscape.
