La Ciotat is located in the middle of a great gulf, named Gulf of Amur, 33 km from Marseille and 40 km from Toulon.

It lies at the heart of the Parc des Calanques. His two creeks, which are the Mugel and Figuerolles differ from those of Cassis by their red color typical forms (eagle's beak, head of dog).

La Ciotat festival every year the memory of the plague in 1720, where she became the breadbasket of Provence as it was the only seaside town spared by it: historical festival where the whole city is transformed and in costume as time.

In March takes place on large regional boat show in the harbor.
