Here are a few pictures of La Ciotat:

La Ciotat is also a resort town, and most of the downtown is either beach or harbor. There are rocky coves you can visit on a ferry, a little island off the coast (l'Ile Verte) and a hiking trail between La Ciotat and other towns, Cassis and Toulon, and Marseille. The area reminds me a bit of the Cinque Terre in Italy, which I visited in 2011.
