(5/5 based on 75 reviews on the web)
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".

  • All along this beautiful Ridge Road of many stops with fantastic views on the sea and the most beautiful of the halts very mountainous inland is the Cap Canaille: a vertiginous view of the sea and the port of Cassis. The highest cliff in Europe of the order of 350 m... it is small it is recommended to not have Vertigo to take your pictures
