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 Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
