Spending a Day in Saint Tropez: What to Do

November 04, 2020
Saint Tropez! Just hearing that would give you mental images of a white sandy beach, crystal blue waters, five-star hotels, and the like. It's a first-class summer vacation destination for the rich and famous, right along the beautiful French Riviera. Though despite its glossy reputation, it's easy to think that this place has nothing else to offer apart from its tropical serene ambiance. Well, this is far from the truth! In fact, there's plenty to see and do in Saint Tropez. And if you have one free day to spare here, these are what you ought to do!

Visit the Citadel

Didn't expect that there'd be such a place here, did you? The Saint Tropez Citadel is a beautiful fortress that reminds of the coastal town's strategic location. It's a stunning piece of history that dates back centuries, giving more depth to the place beyond its glossy reputation. The structure itself is quite breathtaking, the type that you'd see in period films, documentaries, and more. And when you get inside and climb all the way up, you'll get a stunning view of the French Riviera! Visiting the Citadel is a novel experience you shouldn't miss in Saint Tropez!

Take a Sandy Stroll Along Plage des Graniers

Though strolling by the beach is practically all you can do in Saint Tropez, the stunning Plage des Graniers coastline makes it all the more worthwhile. Though most of the area has been commercialized, it's no without its patches of private scenery. And these are the sort of (slightly) remote parts of the place that's perfect for a secret rendezvous with your significant other. It's sort of like going to the less-visited underrated spots in Paris but instead of being in a bustling metropolis, you're on a breathtaking coast along the French Riviera.

Have Lunch at Senequier

If you ever saw a picture of a famous person dining in a beautiful café along a street in Saint Tropez, there's a big chance he/she was in Senequier. Iconic doesn't even begin to describe this institution of a place. Looking very much like Paris' own charming cafés, it's one of, if not the most well-known spots in the French Riviera. Countless celebrities have been photographed here. And back in 2011, Chanel even held their resort show in this very area! That alone should tell you just how important and a must-see Senequier is!

Enjoy a Slice of La Tarte Tropezienne

If Paris has the croissant, then Saint Tropez has its adorably eponymous La Tarte Tropezienne. A scrumptious brioche with cream filling, it's a must-try for anyone who's lucky enough to visit the French coastal town. It's said that the party got its name from the iconic French actress and iconic sex symbol, Brigitte Bardot. That should tell you just how historic and how big of a culinary institution this treat is. Light and fluffy with the right sweetness, it's a perfect dessert to enjoy, especially when the Mediterranean sun is shining a little too brightly on Saint Tropez.

Have an Aperitif in A Luxurious Hotel

If you know something about the French, it's that they love to drink wine. In fact, they even have a special kind of wine, an aperitif, that they take right before dinner! Think of it as a French cocktail of sorts, but instead of whatever alcoholic concoction you might be thinking, it's simply wine! And the best place to enjoy your aperitif is in a luxury hotel in Saint Tropez. These establishments are a dime a dozen in this coastal town, such as the historic Hotel La Ponche and the beautiful Hotel de Paris.

Spending a day in Saint Tropez can actually be boring if all you know of what to do around here is spend hours on a beach. There's actually more to see, do, eat, drink, and explore in this beautiful coastal town along the French Riviera!

Of course, your day here would be even miles better if you got a luxury home for your accommodation!
