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".

  • If you travel on the side of Cassis, don't miss out on the road of the peaks between Cassis and La Ciotat, for the strollers, car, stop along the way to admire the views. If are (very) sports, some do bike but it takes a sacred fitness

  • Do the Ridge Road in the direction of La Ciotat-online Cassis at the end of day, when the light turns yellow and shadows its draw on the hills... Great show! Bring glasses walk and a good Cassis rose fresh... You will be at the Cap Canaille for happy hour! When the Sun falls on the sea, past the yellow to red, at the top of this huge Cliff you will have views breathtaking! Some nights in October and February, when the sun touches the Sea you will see even the reverberation of Mount Canigou.
