Some good restaurants along the beach, we particularly enjoyed lunch at Barco one day and La Voile, at both had an excellent fish dish.

Port Grimaud

Reviewed By Christine F

Port Grimaud is a picturesque seaside town, it is a mixture of France and Italy. This seaside town was created by architect François Spoerry in the 1960s by modifying the marshes of the river Giscle on the bay of Saint-Tropez.
Built with channels in a Venetian manner, but with French "Fishermans" style houses resembling those in Saint-Tropez.
This little town is surrounded by pastel buildings and little canals. Even though it is small it is very charming, with small boutiques and coffee shops dotted around town. Apart from walking, you can also go on boat rides around the canals to explore the town.
Honestly I could have stayed there the whole day just wondering and exploring this small town. There are plenty of instagrammable spots there, I just wished I could have spent more time there.

Thalasso Spa Les Issambres

Reviewed By Voyageur775 - Saffron Walden

Overall the spa was bright, clean and the staff friendly. The 50 minute massage was above average but the time in the massage bath (only 15 minutes) was too short. We spent a lot of time in the pool, going round the different water jets and the Jacuzzi, then into the Hamam before the quiet area to cool down, before returning to the pool area. Additional treatments were available at extra cost.
A 2-course lunch was included with the half-day package, there was also an a la carte menu. The food was simple but sufficient for lunch. Drinks, including the coffee were extra.

Pointe des Sardinaux

Veritable havre de paix, en hiver comme en ete, ce lieu peu connu, est une presqu’ile naturelle dite "La petite Corse". On y accede par la Corniche bordee de pins parasols en direction de Saint-Raphael, elle est situee juste avant la plage de la Nartelle. Veritable representation a echelle humaine du monde littoral, plantes, algues, coquillages et crustaces.

Spent some happy hours on this point snorkeling and checking out the rock pools. Plenty of sea-life, we even caught (and released) an octopus, which the kids are still raving about. There's not much beach to be had, but it's a pleasant spot nonetheless.
Park by the side of the road at the bend in the corner and it's a three minute walk to the water.

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.

Reviewed By Munrovia

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.

Port de Sainte-Maxime

In the heart of Ste Maxime, the port is home to 800 pleasure crafts and around a dozen fishing boats. Stroll on the Leon Condroyer pier, which was completely refurbished in 2013. The Harbour master's office, whose architecture is reminiscent of the silhouette of a ship, has a range of services for recreational boaters.

If you visit this harbor, it may not be as zsazy as the one on Saint-Tropez. But here’s the real deal: If you’re here, you’ve got a million-dollar view of Saint-Tropez. If you’re in Saint-Tropez, you’re views are of Sainte-Maxime. Another plus: The better sunset photos are from here. Also, park your car cheaper here, avoid the traffic, and take the ferry (12€ RT off season) to Saint-Tropez. Beautiful views, pretty water, plenty of places to eat, drink and shop (for less than Saint-Tropez).

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.
