But the beaches here are just so beautiful, you wouldn't care if it's the nth time you're sunbathing along the coasts of the city. Places like Pampelonne beach, Plages La Glaye, La Ponche, and more are all picturesque shorelines that you've only ever dreamed about. They're some of the main reasons why many of the world's elite come here. Add to that the many upscale hotspots that line these places to ensure that you get to relax luxuriously while you're here!

Party In A Yacht

Cannes isn't the only city in the French Riviera where it's great to charter yachts. Saint Tropez is also another—some may argue even better—coastal city to party on a luxurious yacht! Firstly, the waters and the harbors here are breathtaking. Just relaxing on your yacht on a lazy day is enough to make you want to keep coming back to this city. Add to that the incredible social scene here, dominated by Hollywood celebrities, social media influencers, leaders of the business world, and even a few members of the royal families around the world. At a yacht party here, you might rub shoulders with some of these important people!

Visit Chapelle Sainte-Anne

Now, you may be thinking, 'what's so good about visiting a church?' Surely, in France and in other European countries, beautiful churches are a dime a dozen. Those in Lecce, Italy alone are worth filling up your camera's memory card over! However, here in Saint Tropez, there's one you wouldn't want to overlook: Chapelle Sainte-Anne. This 17th-century structure holds historical significance in the city as it used to be a place where French sailors and fishermen would pray to Saint Anne for protection when venturing out to the seas. Also, the church was where the iconic rockstar couple, Mick and Bianca Jagger, were wed. How's that for history?

Hike Up Sentier du Littoral

There's chartering a yacht, sunbathing on a beach, eating delicious food, and exploring the city on foot. With so many things to do in Saint Tropez that are ultimately relaxing, you probably didn't expect hiking to be an activity you can do here too! But what's a trip without a little strenuous exercise? If you're up to the task, hiking up the beautiful Sentier du Littoral trail is a great way to spend the day. With every step you take, you get to see the breathtaking views of the Cap Taillat peninsula. You wouldn't want to miss them!

Explore La Ponche

For the most part, both tourists and locals tend to stay within the more popular parts of Saint Tropez. Many frequent the Place des Lices main square, stroll along Vieux Port, and relax in the city's many beautiful beaches. Those are all well and good but why not explore a different side to Saint Tropez that not a lot of people probably know of? La Ponche is an old and historic fishermen's village along the outskirts of Saint Tropez. Many parts of the town haven't changed since the 18th and early 19th centuries, making a strong hit of nostalgia in this modern-day paradise.

Shop Till You Drop!

You didn't expect to go to Saint Tropez without having to go on some much-needed retail therapy, did you? This is one of the most luxurious cities in the French Riviera. It's just as much of a shopping haven as Paris, Cannes, and other prominent laps of luxury in France. But what's most exciting about shopping here is that it's diverse. There are those that offer French designer brands and international luxury labels. While other places, like Marché de Saint-Tropez, are all about rare finds and delicious food! With so many options on offer here, you can really shop until you literally drop and can't go on anymore!
