“a hidden gem on the Cote d'Azur”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2011

This is a gem that the guide books have thankfully glossed over. Neighbouring Casis gets the marks for cutes, but La Ciotat is more real and has much of what Casis has and more.

Fabulous emerald calanques, amazing cliff top walks, with views across the Med, sandy beaches, great food and without the hyper tourism.

The Sunday market is fantastic - attended mainly by locals - food, produce and the usual bits and pieces.

The super yachts sit cheek by jowl with run-abouts and everything in between.
