Cassis one of the best resorts outside of St-Tropez. Guarded by towering white cliffs, the town sits on the steep incline overlooking the harbour.
Chic Cassis perfect for a relaxing meal or drink port side and a great retreat for sunbathing whilst looking up at the ruins of the town’s medieval castle dating back to 1381. Take a boat trip to the Calanques – long, narrow, deep fjord-like inlets that over the years have cut into the limestone cliffs. Various companies operate from the port offering different excursions. If walking is your style take the coastal path route des Calanque set behind the western beach; ninety minute walk will get you to Calanque En Vau. Here you can climb down the rocks to the shore line or find a place to sunbathe on the white cliffs. The water is deep blue and well worth a swim between the vertical cliffs.
