Title in french : Cap Canaille de Cassis à La Ciotat

Type : classical

Mountains : Cap Canaille

City : Cassis, La Ciotat

Duration : 4h

Distance : 11.8km

Variation in height : 625m

Maximum altitude : 375m

The hike from Cassis to La Ciotat by the Cap Canaille and the Cliffs Soubeyrannes offers a magnificent view of the calanques from the highest cliffs in Europe.

We propose here to do the full route, from the port of Cassis to the bus station of La Ciotat, and to prioritize public transport.

If you are only interested by the central part of the hike, you can start walking from one of the Belvedere parking, climb up to the Semaphore of the Bec de l'Aigle and then retrace your steps.

The more adventurous can also imagine a loop from the Pas de la Colle returning from the inside but that's another adventure with more elevation.

Anyway, the full version is a wonderful journey where the act of taking his time and to give a little more trouble gives full value to the wealth of the route.

You will taste to the Cassis's charms before you go up by the ridge road and take the path that actually begins in Pas de la Colle.

Will follow a few hours to walk on the ridges just to enjoy breathtaking views, this more or less close to the road and its flow of vehicles.

A detour to the Cave of emigrants, a few stops to admire the cliffs with a tortured relief, and then you will quickly reach the Semaphore where you expect a different point of view on the Bay of La Ciotat and Giens.

A descent along the Quarry of the Vigie and you're back on the asphalt toward Figuerolles with possible visits to the creek at the Notre Dame de la Garde or Parc du Mugel.

Then head back to civilization to stroll along the harbor of La Ciotat and take a break on a terrace before joining the bus station!
