(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".

  • From the top of the cap, this cliff, you have a sublime view of CASSIS, its port and the famous calanques. In the car, get out of CASSIS and the direction of the East, the D141 in the direction of LA CIOTAT (the Ridge Road). Top parking allows you to park and then you can walk along the cliff walk (not too close) to admire this beautiful landscape. Take your car and along this Ridge Road and stop on several viewpoints developed for other points of view just as great. Cap Canaille is 363 metres of altitude, a bit further you are 394 metres and so on the highest cliffs in France
