Visit Sanary-sur-mer - Best of Sanary-sur-mer

Sanary Sur Mer isn’t for people who get excited about tourism. It’s for people who want to kick back and chill, and occasionally take a walk. Historically, it was known as the place to go for the intellectuals exiled from Germany during the Nazi period. Even Aldoux Huxley wrote the ‘Brave New World’ here. As such, in the 1990s, literary itineraries were unveiled in Sanary Sur Mer, as was a commemorative plaque. At the Le Jardin des Enfantsd'Izieu, you will find a plaque remembering 44 children and their seven teachers who were deported to Auschwitz in 1944.

Sightseeing wise, Sanary has a lovely harbour, with very photogenic fishing boats moored along the prominent points. The town also has a rich history of diving. Check out the markets too – the morning fish market and the Wednesday Weekly Market. Boats can be sailed out to the island of Porquerolles. And then there’s the old town – winding streets and a ‘new’ 16th century square. The Jardin des Oliviers and the JardinExotique - ZOO de Sanary are pleasant tourist attractions too.
