The family went hiking on the cliffs by the beach today. We had the most wonderful time. The weather was perfect and the view was even better. We went to Sanary sur Mer which is about 45 minutes from our apartment. There is a small commun there called “Le Brusc” and that is where you will find one of the most scenic hikes. It is very short but not difficult, and there are so many terrific areas to have a picnic and make a trek down to the sea.
Spending the afternoon there, just relaxing and taking in the Mediterranean Sea is breathtaking. I recommend taking a backpack with food and drinks and another with affairs for the beach. Wear tennis shoes because the hike is a little rocky and the descent to the beach can be a little difficult. I have witness very small children maneuvering their way just fine, though.
Prepare to be there most of the day. Be warned, you will not want to leave! The view is something you don’t get tired of and the crystal clear waters are the most refreshing to be in.
In late spring through summer, it stays light until 9:30pm or 10:00pm. It doesn’t start to cool down until around 8:30pm. Up until that time, the sun is very intense. Be sure you have sunscreen. Giant lobsters are not appealing!
For those of you who have been there, or end up going, please let me know how you like it.
