A holiday hotspot, Saint-Tropez is home to beautiful beaches, luxury boutiques and crystal-clear waters! Although some of the best things to do in St Tropez are sunshine based there's plenty of other things to explore that you might not even realise!
Musee de l’Annonciade
One of the top tourist attractions of Saint-Tropez is the Musee de l’Annonciade, an art museum housed in a beautiful church. The chapel dates back to 1510 and holds a huge array of Impressionist paintings, a striking reminder of the village’s avant-garde artist past.
Maison des Papillons
One of the more unique things to do in Saint-Tropez is visit the butterfly museum, home to more than 35,000 butterflies, with species from all over the world, from popular species to those that are extinct and extremely rare, such as the Black Apollo, it's the perfect break from all the shopping and sunbathing!
On Tuesdays and Saturdays, the old town square transforms into a bustling market square, where you can enjoy colourful market stalls full of fresh produce. In our opinion one of the highlights of visiting St-Tropez.
Plage de l’Escalet
The beach of Plage de l’Escalet is perfect for swimming, snorkelling and bathing thanks to its sheltered, calm waters. The sand is a mixture of pebbles and sand, and forms part of a chain of three beaches between Cap Camarat and Cap Taillat.
The old town of Saint-Tropez is known at La Ponche, and is the historical centre of the fishing village. With picture perfect streets and quaint walkways, it's the ideal place to explore. Cobbled lanes are full of small shops, cafes and delicious restaurants.
At the very centre of Saint-Tropez is Vieux Port, or the Old Port, where you can see small fishing boats and large yachts come in to the harbour, framed by a backdrop of beautiful pastel coloured houses.
No surprise being by the sea that there is a huge amount of water-sport activities on offer for all ages and abilities, from windsurfing to jet skiing you can easily spend a morning getting your adrenaline fix!
Hire a boat
With such a stunning harbour, a trip to Saint-Tropez would not be complete without taking a boat out into the crystal waters beyond the bay. If you can’t charter your own boat, there are a few local companies that provide day trips into the open water and around the coast.
