One of the most glamorous tourist destinations in the world, Saint Tropez, France is an ancient fishing village that the rich and famous discovered and made their own. Its magnificent beaches range from the famous celebrity-spotting Pampelonne to the small, quaint, and secluded Plages la Glaye or la Ponche. The beautiful Mediterranean invites visitors to explore its depths with the European Diving School or by kayak or paddleboard with Adventure Sports. CDC information for travelers. Hours/availability may have changed.

By far the most famous beach in Saint Tropez is Pampelonne beach. This is the beach in all the movies and photos of the rich and famous, movie stars, and celebrities of all sorts. The notoriety is what makes it extremely crowded, the price to pay for hoping to spot somebody famous in a bikini. This long stretch of fine golden sand is surrounded by large sand dunes covered bars, restaurants, and beach clubs renting out chairs and umbrellas. Some of the less popular, but also much less crowded, beaches in Saint Tropez and quite close to the village are Plages La Glaye, la Ponche, and de la Fontanette. Plage de la Bouillabaisse is on the way to the village with a lovely view of the Massif des Maures mountains and a few nice beach club restaurants and bars.

The Museum of Maritime History is located in the former dungeon of the picturesque Citadel of Saint Tropez, featuring exhibits that illustrate 500 years of history of Saint Tropez and its strong links to the sea. Exhibits illustrate various voyages of Saint Tropez seamen across many different world seas, fishing trips along the coast of Provence, long voyages around the Cape Horn on large sailing boats, or expeditions to India on large steamship liners belonging to the famous Far East Company. The museum celebrates the lives of town heroes such as Bailli de Suffren, Hippolyte Bouchard, and General Allard, but also those of the many anonymous sailors who served aboard the navy’s vessels or fought stormy seas while working on merchant ships. Through the town’s maritime history, the museum also shows daily life over centuries.

La Maison des Papillons or the Butterfly Museum, is located in the heart of Saint Tropez in the former home of artist Dany Lartigue, his father photographer Jacques-Henri Lartigue, and grandfather André Messager, a member of the French Academy and a manager of the Paris Opera. Dany Lartigue created the museum with an exceptional collection of French diurnal species of butterflies presented against the background of Dany’s colorful paintings. It took him decades to collect over 35,000 butterflies, some of them extinct or protected and others rare or unusual, such as the black Apollo collected in the Mercantour region. The museum also contains an important collection of exotic butterflies from the Solomon Islands and Amazonia. Not all specimen have been sorted and displayed. Those shown in the museum are displayed in an unique way, with their natural environment painted as a background for the specimen. While the collection is recognized for its scientific contribution, it is their breathtaking beauty that fascinates visitors.

The five windmills Moulin de Paillas were built between the 16th and 19th centuries on the hill above the quaint picturesque village of Ramatuelle near Saint Tropez. Today in ruins, only one of them has been renovated and can be visited after a short, pleasant walk up the hill. The village tourist office organizes guided tours of the mill every Tuesday morning. The mills were all decommissioned in the 19th century when new technology made them obsolete. When they were fully operational, they were made completely of wood, with a few parts reinforced by iron. Like typical Provencal mills, Moullins de Paillas had their upper parts mobile in order to pivot to catch the best wind. The view from the windmill of the village, Cavalaire Bay, La Croix Valmer, and Pampelonne Beach is breathtaking.
