Route des Cretes, La Ciotat

4.9
Enjoy views of the Mediterranean Sea, mountains and creeks on Route des Cretes. This ridge road connects Cassis to La Ciotat, offering plenty of viewing points with parking areas and gazebos along the way. The road steeply climbs up Scoundrel Cap and makes short loops on the edge of the 394 m (1,293 ft) high Soubeyrans cliff--the highest cliff of France. Plan my La Ciotat trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • The road climbs into the pine forest and the garigue offering magnificent views of La Ciotat Bay and breathtaking and vertiginous views of Cassis

  • We regularly take the road to the ridges by motorbike to go to Cassis in our favorite restaurant (the closing of aromas) and we stop each time to contemplate the panorama. Whatever the time of day it's wonderful. Small preference in autumn in late afternoon before sunset
