Cap Canaille in Cassis, France

One of the highlights of Marseille is its Calanques. They are rock formations that forms narrow, steep-walled inlets with crystal blue water. Some of this Calanques are only accessible by boat. 
We were visiting the region of Cassis part of Marseille. We traveled through these rocky mountains until we arrived at Cassis. We stroll around the picturesque little town full of color. The market was open and the streets were full of people. We walked to the beach, looked to our left, and there it was this giant rock. Is the highest sea cliff of France and we were able to touch it.
Cap Canaille is one of many Calanques in the South of France.
 
In the above map you can see the many Calanques. If you like hiking or rock climbing this are perfect places to do so. Another thing you can do is take a boat to the ones that are only accessible by this method, you can find a kayak tour too. The water is so clear! And what about the gorgeous scenery of blue water and high cliff rocky mountains? It will take your breath away.
