Cassis tourist informationwhere to go - what to see - what to do
The charming fishing village of Cassis has always been a great favourite with the French Fauve artists drawn here for its azure waters set against a backdrop of quaint houses and dramatic limestone cliffs known as 'les calanques'. Today, the port is lined with chic boutiques, cafes and restaurants whilst the shady squares in the village itself are home to the inevitable 'petanque' or games of boules.
To really appreciate the splendour of the coastline here head to the nearest Calanque, Port-Miou, which can be reached by car or even on foot (allow 30 min). Here you'll find the same white stone that was used to build the Suez Canal. Port-Pin is also worth a detour with its pretty white beach. Alternatively, head out to sea on one of the daily excursions that leave from the port.
There are numerous events held in Cassis throughout the year including a wine festival in September and sea festival in June. You may also want to investigate the local Casino Municipal for a change of scenery!
