St Tropez is a popular travel destination, located sixty-two miles west of Nice, France. The beaches are among the most decadent and beautifully sanded in the French Riviera. More intense & pleasure seeking than either the beaches of Nice or others in the area, St Tropez is the place to go for those who want to play day and night. Despite the party atmosphere, that includes beach clubs, live entertainment & trendy bars, there are some family friendly beaches in the area, where children can swim and play.
Located west of St Torpez is La Bouillabaisse. This popular family friendly destination has its own restaurant and play-area on the beach. La Bouillabaisse is a lower-keyed option to the beach clubs on Pampelonne. The facilities there include public toilets, showers and a first aid station; also there are life guards on duty from mid-June until mid-September. If you travel with children this is a great place to visit.
The most popular beach in the St Tropez area is Pampelonne beach. This is the the place to see when visiting St Tropez. With nearly five kilometers of fine white sand, this is a great place for the glamorous beach party scene. If Pampelonne interest you, most areas are private. You will have to buy a pass from the beach club that controls access to that part of the beach.
