A stunning and beautiful road to drive. There’s plenty of points to stop and get the panoramic views of the ocean. The road is not difficult to drive, and is not too narrow.

Besides visiting the Clanques, it is aslo a good idea to go up here to watch the sunset. The cliffs offer stunning i oceanview, the City of Cassis and all the Calenques. Absolutely worth spending a night up here.

It is a nice road to take as a detour in the area. Depending on what you are looking for, the starting point and time of day might be of interest. I drove it from Cassis to La Ciotat in the afternoon. The good thing...More

We have been to Cassis on 3 separate occasions and each time we took the opportunity to drive the Route des Cretes. This time we got to introduce friends to this magical drive. The views are breathtaking and if you go early in the morning,...More

Experience of a life-time, even if you just drive it. But get out of the car at least once to be overwhelmed by the views. Absolutely spectacular. So far we haven't been to the Calanques by boat (always there the wrong time) but this is...More

Whilst driving thru the Gorge I saw this route and went for it. Excellent drive with great views, if you’re lucky you’ll see dozens of eagles circulating below u, a fantastic sight

Make sure you go on a clear day if possible. Outstanding views, not a very long drive and definitely worth the time!

Hi, it can be done, but I would not do it. The road is quite narrow and drivers must pay attention to traffic coming from the opposite direction. It won't be as relaxing as driving a small car, although even that requires... More
