The Ridge Road, which connects Cassis La Ciotat, offers breathtaking views over the Mediterranean Sea and the Calanques. The road, steep climbs to Cap Canaille, then short switchbacks to the edge of cliffs Soubeyran (394 m), the highest cliffs of France.
To the east, you can see a magnificent panorama of the Bay of La Ciotat. To the south, you will see the Bec de l'Aigle and the Calanques of Figuerolles. To the west, stunning views of the Calanques of Cassis will not leave you indifferent especially for a romantic sunset. Car parks and lookouts were built at major points of view.
Before embarking on a trip to the very touristy Ridge Road, it is wise to inquire at the town hall, because access is sometimes denied by a fence, under a prefectural decision, especially during periods of high wind or fire risk. (+33(0)4.42.08.88.41)
