This is the only beach we visited in Cassis. We stayed a week in August. It is very crowded. It is a pebble beach but small sandy strips are good for kids. If you go with kids, I recommend visiting before 10am and scouting out...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

This small beach is right at the front of beautiful Cassis. It's small but sandy, and backed by amazing cliffs. A couple of small cafes are at the beachfront too, but expect to pay South of France prices. It gets super-busy in the summer, but...More

Certainly not too crowded on a Monday in June. Its a little away from town, but it is very close to the road.

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

Beautiful clean beach, easy access to the sea. Plenty of places to grab a drink or something to eat. Not too busy even in July

Although we didn't swim at this beach, I was impressed with how clean it was and how crystal clear the water was. I don't know how crowded it is mid summer but in September it was very pleasant.

This is a really nice beach. You will have to walk a little way normally though as parking near the beach is almost impossible. Even to park on the outskirts of town you will have to get there early in peak season (at least before...More
