Saint-Tropez is probably the most famous fishing town on the French Riviera, perhaps in the world. One of the most important attractions is the legendary harbour, where impressive yachts dock. Numerous exclusive restaurants and boutiques appeal to international guests on a high level. However, Saint-Tropez is also a charming little town with small narrow streets, picturesque courtyards and olive trees, the charm of which hardly anyone can resist once they get involved with the little harbour town.
Classic French vineyards surround the charming small town; the wine-growing estates produce the finest wine and invite to tastings. However, the most beautiful destinations around Saint-Tropez are without doubt the dream beaches. In and around the city, there are a total of seven beaches spread over a length of more than eleven kilometres. The attractions here are the well-known beach clubs of the Baie de Pampelonne, the largest sand beach on the French Riviera and hotspot of the international jet set.

Picturesque villages nearby such as Grimaud, Ramatuelle or Gassin give visitors a picture of the medieval architecture of the Gulf of Saint-Tropez. From the ruins of Grimaud Castle, you can see Saint-Tropez surrounded by the endless expanse of the forested Massif des Maures. Gassin is considered one of the most beautiful villages in France and offers an impressive view over the Gulf of Saint-Tropez. The smallest street in the world “Androuno” is a curiosity of Gassin – it measures only 29 cm at its narrowest point.
Coastal walks on the Saint-Tropez peninsula along beaches such as Gigaro or on narrow paths passing cliffs with magnificent views of Cap Lardier are particularly appealing to hiking enthusiasts. Not to be missed is the unique Esterel Mountains – a crimson rock formation that stretches along the coastal road between Cannes and Saint Raphael.
