St. Tropez beach in France is mainly a public beach though there is a small area you can rent sunbeds. I’d recommend going early to get a parking space. Sunbathing, champagne and the fight for a spot in the sun always make for interesting and sometimes outrageous situations, even after the sun goes down and the music crescendos. St. Tropez’s reputation was secured as the place to sunbathe, swim, mingle and while away the summer. St. Tropez’s hottest spots during the summer season.
The majority of tourists arrive at Marseille International Airport due to the convenience and frequency of flights to destinations all over the UK, Europe and beyond. Being only 70 kms from Saint Tropez in addition to the convenient selection of flights makes Marseille Provence International the preferred gateway to St Tropez for most tourists arriving by air. You can rent a bike for the day at Holiday Bikes (14, avenue du G.Leclerc) for approximatly 26 Euros ($33) or a moped for 12 Euros ($15.25).
There is decent arts and crafts shopping in the area. And hang onto your credit cards, because the shopping here is out-of-this-world! St. Tropez has chic cafes, shops and restaurants. Nearby Cannes is, of course, famed for its annual film festival, but with its location on the French Riviera it has much more to offer than that!
You already know there are the top class boutique shops and restaurants that overlook the beaches. My choice is a cafe at around 8 in the morning with cup of coffee and some delicious French pastry.
Mix it up; you have the time. Remember that parking around here can be a bear, so unless you’re staying in the vicinity, plan on catching the bus or taxi a little early.
Don’t forget that there is decent shopping in nearby Grimaud or Cogolin, a few miles away. But if you want to window shop, St. Tropez is the place. Common courtesy here – you are near the beach, but you must get into street clothes before you enter.
Finally, the night is a wonderful time to be in St. Tropez. Yes, you can stroll the walk along the beach if you like. Some nights can get a bit breezy, but stop in an soak in the many restaurants and cafes here.
It’s worth plunking down $5 for a coffee and small pastry to sit at a table and people watch. That’s pretty cheap entertainment anywhere on the globe, and you’re sitting in St. Tropez!
Summer is big here, don’t forget. You may need to make a reservation at some places. Either call ahead, or use your concierge at the hotel. It makes great sense since they know how everything works in their city.
One of my favorites is a seafood restaurant at the Byblos Hotel on Ave Paul Signac. It is to die for, but I’ll let you be the judge. Tell me what you think when you get back, OK?Tags: Credit Cards, Sports Cars, Film Producers, Gateway, Vicinity, Grimaud, Outrageous Situations, Beaches France, Provence
