Travel Tuesday: Cassis, France

Today I'm sharing with you the beautiful town of Cassis, located in the Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur region in the south of France. We sort of stumbled upon Cassis one day while out on a driving adventure. That's always fun, right? The water was a breathtakingly blue/green and the rocky stone cliffs framed it perfectly. The first day in Cassis we just followed the crowd and did the tourist-thing. Parked in a nearly full lot and squeezed onto a very crowded, rocky beach. The water was truly so beautiful, the crowd was almost not a bother... almost. 

We just had to return for a second day. This time, though, we did a little research on the area and decided to avoid the crowded beach and go for the hiking route. I'm so happy we did, because the views were even more incredible and we found a little eatery, La Plage Bleue, that had the most amazing seafood (for my husband) and delicious salad (for me) enjoyed overlooking the water we were so drawn to in the first place! The cliff walks were only partially open due to the strong winds that day, but we still managed to take in some of the views along the Calanques de Casis. My husband and I both agree, Cassis is well worth the visit and on our next trip to the region, we'll do our best to rent a flat and enjoy the views even longer!

I hope you've enjoyed today's Travel Tuesday. Let me know if you've been to Cassis and if so, how did you like it?
