Les Baux de Provence - Trips to the Med

I will be based in Les Baux de Provence for 3 days in mid-September. I would like on one of those days to explore the Mediterranean coastline. Does anyone have any suggestions for places to go that are an easy day trip from Les Baux? I do have a car? I am not looking to go to Marseille.

Cassis would be my choice. Including the Corniche des Cretes and a Calenques boat trip from Cassis.

I second Cassis, sit by the harbor for a lovely lunch.
The sea urchins should be in season.

How about a gentle circular trip through Camargue ticking off pink flamingos, black bulls, white horses, paddy fields, Stes Maries, Aigues Mortes, (Nimes & Pont du Gard would be too much ?) and Arles on the way.

September is ideal - quiet, but still warm.

I second the idea of the Camargue.

And I third it. See if you can find a way to have lunch or dinner at Les Tellines in Sambuc - an experience you'll never forget.
