Saint-Tropez Cruises

One of the world’s most famous resorts, St Tropez is everything you expect – massive yachts, French celebrities and upscale boutiques. Yet beyond the glitz and glamour there’s a quietly beautiful Provencal seaside town here, with its charming cobbled streets, historic villas and chic cafes dishing up beautifully prepared seafood dishes. Head up the hill to the Citadel to enjoy sweeping views of the town and Mediterranean below, or spend your day topping up your tan with the beautiful people on nearby beaches. Whatever you choose to do, this French Riviera gem is bound to leave an impression.

What You Need To Know About Saint-Tropez

How to reach St Tropez from the cruise terminal?

You’ll be transported from your cruise ship by tender to a centrally located dock, which includes a tourist office to help you get oriented with your surroundings. Pick up maps and bus schedules here to plan your day. This dock is at the historic old port at Quai Jean Jaures, allowing you to have a wander along the waterfront and watch the yachts, or take a taxi to the nearest beach. If you’ve decided to stay in St Tropez walking is usually the easiest way to get around. For excursions further afield, take a taxi or bus. Bicycles and scooters are also available for hire in the city centre.

What are the can’t-miss sights in St Tropez?

With its laid-back atmosphere, St Tropez isn’t the type of place where you want to jam-pack your day full of sights to tick off the list. Instead, slow down, have a leisurely stroll, and stop off at a café to sip a freshly squeezed juice (or glass of wine) and watch the world go by. The main square is Place des Lices, which is usually a lively place filled with markets, street vendors, and musicians. If you want a sweeping view over the bay, climb up the hill to the Citadelle fortress which now hosts a maritime history museum in its interior.

Typical food and restaurants in St Tropez?

This chic resort boasts equally stylish cafes and restaurants, the sort of places where you can see and be seen like L’Olivier in the La Bastide hotel. Whether you opt for humble seaside café or five-star bistro, you can expect amazingly fresh seafood served simply or in rich cream sauces. Try ratatouille, a vegetable dish bursting with courgette, tomato and aubergine, or Nicoise salad with its tuna or anchovies, hard boiled eggs and fresh greens. This being France, even standard pastries are top-notch, as is the bread. Rose wines are a specialty of the Provence region, providing a refreshingly light and fruity accompaniment to your meal.


St Tropez punches well above its weight when it comes to museums. For such a small place, you’ll find some exquisite collections including the likes of Seurat, Matisse and Braque at the Musee de l’Annonciade. And for a different type of collection, why not visit the Maison des Papillons? This ‘House of Butterflies’ features over 4,500 different specimens, including rare breeds you won’t see anywhere else. Positioned along the French Riviera, St Tropez gives you access to a number of beaches to choose from. The closest is only a mile’s walk from the main dock, Plage de la Bouillabase. Baie de Pampelonne is a bit further afield but it’s worth the journey as you’ll find it lined with bustling beach clubs, glamorous people, and the topless sunbathers of Tahiti Beach. A nearby excursion is Port-Grimaud, accessible from St Tropez by water shuttle. Here you’ll find a charming community with canals, yachts and pretty homes, and if you walk up the hill you’ll find the older town with a medieval castle. Getting around by boat is one of the best ways to explore the Riviera. With sparkling blue waters and golden beaches, it gives you a different side to St Tropez including great views of the Bay of Canebiers and Citadelle.
