France > Pampelonne Beach

Saint-Tropez beaches

beaches of Saint-Tropez are generally divided in three parts:

The "in-town" beaches[edit]

They consist of "La Glaye", "La Ponche" and "La Fontanette". As Saint Tropez is several hundred years old, the three beaches are small or even tiny and they are located near the heart of the village.

Pampelonne beach[edit]

Probably this is the kind of beach that most people consider a "Saint-Tropez" beach. Basically, it is a long, mostly sandy beach, located about 5 km south-east to Saint-Tropez. Only half of the beach belongs to the commune of Saint-Tropez, but clubs like Nikki Beach - strictly speaking located in Ramatuelle - often use the term Saint-Tropez beach.

Most parts of the beach have their own parkings, toilets, showers, changing facilities, cafes, restaurants, lifeguard patrols, rentable sun-loungers and wind-surfing opportunities.

Also most famous clubs are located in many of Pampelonne beach parts. This includes:

Plage de Tahiti[edit]

This beach was popularised in the film 'And God Created Woman' with Brigitte Bardot. The beach is accessed by heading to the Bay of Pampelonne and walking to the northern section of Pampelonne beach. It is accessible via an unpaved road.

Other near the town beaches[edit]

Basically this includes other beaches, considered as near, and linked to Saint-Tropez. It includes:

Plage de la Bouillabaisse[edit]

Located beyond the port and car park. Offers views across the bay to the Maures mountains.

Plage des Salins[edit]

It is sometimes wrongly included as part of Pampelonne.
