Cap Canaille is a headland situated in the Bouches-du-Rhône département, in southern France, on the Mediterranean Sea coast between the towns Cassis and La Ciotat. At 394m, it is the highest sea cliff of France. The rock face of Cap Canaille is called Falaises de Soubeyrannes. The rock consists of layers of ochre-coloured sandstone, conglomerate and limestone from the Turonian age on top of grey marl from the Cenomanian until the Turonian age. The Corniche des Crêtes road runs over the top of the cliff.The name in Provençal is Cap Naio. It has been misunderstood in French and changed into Cap Canaille instead of "Cap Naille".

  • A great ballad on Cassis, the view from the top is magnificent! Do in car or hiking for the more energetic!

  • Magnificent view of the calanques of cassis, the Islands and the sea... We're never bored. Beautiful sunsets, particularly in winter. It overlooks the entire Bay of Cassis. and on the other side we saw on that of La Ciotat. Not to be missed

  • We must absolutely go through the Ridge Road and stop a long moment to Cap Canaille to enjoy the view on the sea, the Bay of Cassis, and walk along the cliff, in the vegetation. A must-see in the region.
