St Tropez

Overview

Introduction

Though its beach is far from the best on the French Riviera, the village of St. Tropez has great shopping, a picturesque old town and some very interesting exhibition spaces (including the Marine and the Annonciade museums).

Located about 40 mi/65 km southwest of Nice, St. Tropez can easily be seen in a few hours. Be sure to walk through the winding medieval streets and to stop for a drink at one of the many sidewalk cafes. In the summer, St. Tropez is swamped with beautiful people. It draws 5 million visitors annually, 1,000 for each resident.

Some of the famous beaches nearby include Tahiti, Plage des Graniers, Tropezina and Tabou. Should time permit, visit the neighboring villages of Ramatuelle (17th-century church and good vistas) and Gassin (13th-century church and views of the Alps) and take boat excursions to the Hyeres Islands.
