Oops, the review I posted for Plage du Corton entitled Cassis Main Beach should have been for this beach! Very Pleasant beach, busy but not too crowded in mid September even at weekends. Most people come & go quite quickly so there always space available....More

Cassis is a lovely town with lots going for it. The beach is an added bonus rather than a star attraction. It’s mainly pebbly and was very crowded in the day we visited. Despite being August and hot weather the sea was absolutely freezing and...More

Nice small beach that gets super crowded by 1030-1100. Very small parking section in front with a few coveted spots. Good luck in getting a space there. We parked at Mimosa lot which is just a short distance away. Probably better there since there is...More

Very happy at how clean the beach was. Early morning you have more locals around and visitors that practice paddle boarding. Gets crowded by noon. So get there early to save a spot.

Each visit to Cassis, we walk along the beach – or at least along the walkway. Beautiful view of the water and cove. This last visit was during the winter, so no one was in the water, but some were walking about. Even during the...More
