The cute town of Cassis is a small fishing village about 30km from Marseille in southern France. It becomes crowded in summer but since so many people want to visit you can not prevent a quota of visitors per day! There are two beaches in the center of town next to the harbor. Services such as, rescue, ice cream, a place to rent chairs and umbrellas are offered. If you go through the port to go to the beach, look at the fishing boats. The typical boats are called "Pointus" or tip vessel. They are painted in nice colors and names of girls in the area. The specialty of Cassis is the wine, which is white or pink.
