ST TROPEZ Yacht Charter Guide
Made famous by Brigitte Bardot in the 1950s, St Tropez is the epitome of luxury. Exclusive beach clubs, world-class dining and infamous parties attract many luxury yacht charters, yet some areas of the Provençal town maintain a rustic charm. Beautiful architecture combined with the glamour of Hollywood give St Tropez an unmatched atmosphere. Throughout the summer months superyachts glide into the marina, making the cafes that line the harbour an ideal spot to admire the St Tropez yacht scene. Explore the miniature coves and bays along the rugged coastline of the Côte d’Azur with a St Tropez luxury yacht charter, and step ashore to indulge your hedonistic side through the night.
Key Cruising Areas: Take a day to escape the crowds and glamour and sail out to the île de Porquerolles, touted to be the last refuge of the French Riviera. Explore the vineyards and relax on one of the quiet beaches, where you may well be the only visitors there.
Don’t Miss: Les Caves du Roy is the most prestigious nightclub in France. In its fifty years it has lost none of its allure and remains the party place for the crème de la crème. Pop a bottle of champagne and prepare to dance until the sun comes up.
Best Spots for Wining and Dining: From traditional Mediterranean fare to Moroccan restaurants that import their spices from Africa, you will find something to suit your mood. Enjoy classic French cuisine elegantly prepared at Rivea in the iconic Hotel Byblos. For a taste of the exotic try the Asian flavours of Ban-Hoï – one of the most exclusive restaurants in St Tropez.
Local Culture: A visit to the historic fishing quarter, La Ponche, will feel like a step back in time with its winding cobbled lanes and alleys. This area is home to a number of architectural treats including the Chapelle de la Miséricorde.
Best Beach: Pampelonne beach has been the spot to see and be seen since the 1950’s. Sparkling turquoise waters and five kilometres of sheltered white sands make it an ideal place to soak up the sun or dine at one of the private beach clubs.
IYC recommends: Stroll down the promenade and enjoy the atmosphere. Indulge your senses with the colours and smells of the outdoor markets, then stop for a coffee and some people watching at one of the harbour cafes.
