Tourism in La Seyne-sur-Mer

A charming seaside resort on the French Riviera, La Seyne-sur-Mer has a rich historical past that still contributes to its charm and authenticity today. From the town’s military past remain impressive fortifications that still dominate the town, such as Fort Balaguier and Fort Napoleon. On the seaside, the Tamaris district with its 70 villas that combine classical and oriental styles, its hotel, its two casinos, its gardens, also bears witness to the city’s early tourist past, which already attracted rich vacationers wishing to stay on the French Riviera at the end of the 19th century.

Nature is still very present in this town, which has managed to preserve a village soul. The Corniche Merveilleuse leads up to the top of the Cap Sicié massif, where a breathtaking panorama of the coast and the offshore islands awaits you. The paths and trails in and around La Seyne-sur-Mer are particularly suitable for hiking and cycling. Don’t miss the Janas Forest, where the pine trees provide welcome shade. You will also find an adventure trail in the trees nearby.

The summer agenda also offers many attractions for vacationers. Every year, Bayamo, the Cuban music festival, brings an extra touch of warmth and friendliness to an already sunny destination.

Provence is also synonymous with terroir and gastronomy. The markets are an opportunity to discover local products: olives, spices, herbs of Provence, fish caught during the day, wines (to be tasted in moderation)…
