  • During 16th century, a fishing village (Ollioules) was established here, clustered around medieval watchtower. The port was built and its harbor deepened in mid-16th century. As a tourist destination, the town underwent a major development in the 1980s.
  • Sanary has a beautiful coastline with small cozy beaches. Unlike most small Mediterranean port towns, it is active the whole year-round.
  • The regular Mistral (strong wind from Rhone Valley) brings gusts of wind up to 81 mph (130 kph). Strong wind makes Sanary one of French Riviera's best windsurfing destinations.
  • Chapelle Notre-Dame-de-Pitie is a chapel created in 1560 and overlooking Sanary's bay. 
  • The French explorer-filmmaker-scientist Jacques Cousteau (1910-1997) had a house here - named Villa Baobab. He invented deep-sea diving equipment, which was created and developed around Sanary.
