Departure to La Ciotat by the ridge road that connects Cassis to La Ciotat impressive track along the cliffs Soubeyranes. They dominate the sea, offering an exceptional view of the bay and creeks.
Arrival at La Ciotat is a resort that has remained authentic! Land of culture and invention, La Ciotat was born thanks to the cinema brothers Louis and Auguste Lumière, which turned the first film in cinema history "The entrance to the train station of La Ciotat" in 1895, and 1910 is the alley that was born on land La Ciotat.

In contrast, the south side of La Ciotat, the relief is accentuated seriously with the massive Bec de l'Aigle, resulting in the formation of inlets: one, the handle of Mugel, is at the foot of the garden Botanical same name.
The creek of Mugel surprised by the colors of ochres of its rocks, typical of creeks Ciotaden, unlike the white reign to Cassis: This stone bears the name of''soft''conglomerate. The cove opens Mugel of the bay, with Green Island and the top face of the Bec de l'Aigle, which draws its cliffs.
A little further west, beyond the botanical garden, a creek, it elevated to a protected site, Figuerolles. The pebble beach framed by cliffs to moving shapes (such as the rock of the Capuchin), has a charm a little wild, which in its time inspired the painter Georges Braque. A must for anyone who has discovered La Ciotat.
