Flights to St. Tropez
St. Tropez is a popular coastal town on the French Riviera of southern France. St. Tropez has long been a popular playground for the rich and famous and is well known for being the place where Brigitte Bardot was discovered!
There is a small local airport, the La Mole-Saint Tropez Airport (airport code: LTT) but it only handles seasonal charter flights to St. Tropez. So fly to Nice Cote d’Azur Airport (code: NCE) instead, and get a bus into St. Tropez from there. South African Airways and Lufthansa both have connections in Munich, and British Airways makes a stop-over in London. You can also catch a flight to St. Tropez (arriving in Nice) with Iberia, and have a transfer in Madrid.

The Tourist Attractions of St. Tropez:
For many visitors to St. Tropez the main attraction is the setting. St. Tropez is a beautiful little town and it’s situated on the French Riviera so enjoys great weather too, and has been a popular getaway spot since the end of the Second World War. First it was French artists who were attracted here, citing the great light as the main attraction, and a little later the rich and famous of Europe and America made it even more popular.
Being quite a small town St. Tropez isn’t packed full of tourist attractions, but it’s a lovely place all the same. Wandering the streets a little inland from the more exclusive marina area will reward the exploring tourist with some great little artist’s studios and attractive houses and buildings. There are shops here too if you’re looking to buy some gifts, and they are usually far more reasonably priced tan in the exclusive stores of the marina and sea front.
Any tourist visiting St. Tropez should still enjoy those elite shops, restaurants and cafés of the sea front as it’s here that you can do some great people watching, and maybe catch sight of someone well known! The culture here is to sit and be seen in the best cafés and restaurants, but expect to pay more for the privilege! Shopping here costs a lot more too and though you can pick up designer goods you’re likely to pay more for them here thanks to inflated prices!
St. Tropez’s Beaches
The beaches are also full of beautiful people, and the beaches themselves are very beautiful. They are set mainly to the south of the town itself in the Baie de Pampelonne area where there’s a number of beaches spanning along the 5 kilometre shoreline. As well as swimming and sunbathing, many of these beaches have water sports including windsurfing, sailing, scuba diving, and motorised water sports too.
