Kayaking through Les Calanques
We spent one of our days in Cassis on a wonderful self-guided Kayak tour through the Calanques. Mya doesn't miss a beat, so of course she tagged along. Now if you know Mya, you'll know how she despises and absolutely loathes water. She is a catdog after all. Well, having a water-fearing dog on board a kayak becomes a little tricky when you hit rough waters. On the way back she decided to go all kamikaze on us by attempting to end it all by jumping into the choppy waters. Luckily I was able to hold on tight to her while Kevin steered us home. Puppy panic attacks aside, kayaking was a fantastic way to see the Calanques up close. We only stopped to swim at one -- Calanque d'En Vau. The prettiest of them all.
FYI: If you plan on visiting Cassis in the summer, be aware that between June 1st and September 30th access to the Calanques may be restricted due to fire hazards. Click here for further info on access conditions.
The Village of Cassis
When we weren't basking in the glory of the Calanques, we were relaxing it up in town. Here's some pics from our walk around the village, info on where we stayed, and recommendations for some of our favorite spots.

Best Beach Bar
Same Same Beach is not only a beautiful pebble beach, but it's also a fabulous bar. Not so much for the cocktails (they were kinda crap), but for the fantastic views. It's mainly a younger crowd hanging out here. Fun spot.
Restaurant Cassis Nino is located in the harbor. Great location & great food. Our favorite order: Provençal mussels.
