The 10 Best Things to Do in Saint-Tropez, France

January 18, 2018 Concepcion Newsome

Brigitte Bardot frolicked on the beaches of St. Tropez in the '50s; now it's the playground of rap stars and international socialites. Most of the sandy hot spots lie southwest of town on the Baie de Pampelonne. But if you're not P. Diddy, take heart: you'll find a few family-friendly, public beaches where the sun, sand and waves are just as fabulous.

Cap Camarat

From the little carpark beside the lighthouse you can enjoy different Lookouts, one over the beautiful pampelonne beach, another one of Cap Taillait. There is also a hiking trail which takes you all the way down to the coast

Escalet Beach

Reviewed By Cameron H

My wife and I visited Escalet Beach on a weekday in July. We showed up at about 1000. There was no free street parking available when we arrived, but there was a lot right across from the beach that charged €5. The beach itself was beautiful, and the water was very clear. It was very crowded both on the sand and in the water. By noon time it was completely packed, so be sure to show up early if you would like to stake out a spot. It's a nice beach to visit, just be prepared for a crowd.

Citadelle de Saint-Tropez - Musee d'histoire maritime

For over 400 years, the Citadel rings the city. Element of the defence of the port the most important between Antibes and Toulon for centuries, it is now one of the few monuments of this magnitude of the Var coast. Proud of its rich maritime past, Saint-Tropez has decided to create a modern museum in the dungeon of the town's Citadel, allowing all visitors to discover the daily lives of men and women who shaped over the centuries the Saint-Tropez of today.

It's quite a climb up a series steps to the Citadelle but really worth it for the view alone. The museum is not big but it is interesting to learn about the birth of St Tropez. The views from the top of the tower itself are fantastic. Worth a visit.

Musee de la Gendarmerie et du Cinema

Reviewed By mouseandbear_info - Vienna, Austria

This newly opened museum pays tribute to both movie making in Saint-Tropez and the local Gendarmerie. And to Louis de Funès, the outstanding French actor who was a household name in most European countries. His probably most popular role was a policeman in the movie "Le gendarme de Saint-Tropez" and the sequels that followed. The museum staff is very friendly and the entrance fee (EUR 4.00 for an adult) is very reasonable. We highly recommend visiting this museum.

Plage de Pampelonne

Reviewed By Philip0010 - Belgium

The beach has a very beautifull green backyard en is extremely well protected by Ramatuelle. One thing i dislike are the extremely high prices for drinks compared to other countries .We come here for more then 40 years and have seen the transformation from the 68 generation to the business generation . From simple Provence wines to marketing wines like Provence wine Minuty 281 list price 110€ on restaurant. The soil changed in dollars. Nevertheless an nice place to visit and it can be done cheap too ( public beaches)

Nice as this is the town is extremely busy during the season and the pressure from this detracts from the experience, there are other similar locations far easier to access and enjoy, if it looks hectic do not waste time.

Reviewed By Terry L - Kelowna, Canada

One of the things I love about the Riviera and Provence in general is the art history. For those who enjoy 20th C art, this is worth a stop. It is a converted chapel on the waterfront. There are some late impressionist paintings as well...MoreDear Terry L We thank you for your visit. We are glad that you enjoyed discovering our paintings and hope to welcome you again soon. Best regards

Place des Lices Market

Reviewed By Debbie M - Cannes, France

This is the best Provincial market on the cote d' azur. It has absolutely everything imaginable that you can buy in a market from amazing fresh fuit and vegetables, to French delicacies and cheese, olives, meats etc . Then clothing, household items, art, electrical items, straw baskets, silk scarves, bathing suits, everything!!
It is situated in Place des Lices and is quite large. Keep you money and wallet close to you as there are sometimes undesirables that will pick pocket. But the market has plenty of police just in case.
The prices are not really negotiable but you can always try.
After the busy market you can have à Cafè or cold drink across the street and watch the world go by.
The market is on Tuesday and Saturday mornings 7-13h.
Enjoy and wear flat shoes or sneakers...the ground is uneven and you don't want to fall.
I definitely recommend this attraction

Plage de la Ponche

Reviewed By smithdarrena - Hampshire, United Kingdom

not really much to say on this area. it is a very picturesque gem hidden in the old part of town that you would easily miss if too easily distracted by the vast array of restaurants/bars and places to see in the old town.
