Even when we know it’s getting colder, Saint-Tropez still sizzles.
If you are vacationing at the French Riviera, take a day to stop in Saint-Tropez. This little French town is famous for its extremely wealthy guests. Lined with glamorous yachts and high-end eateries, “St. Trop” (as some locals call it,) is a playground for the rich and famous.
Home to places such as the wonderful Hotel Byblos, Saint-Tropez gets most of its income from tourism. The town itself contains cute stores for shopping and delicious restaurants. Saint-Tropez also has many beaches you can go to, most of which offer water sports.
The town also holds the well-known European tradition of topless sunbathing. Saint-Tropez is a great stop for a day adventure if you are ever nearby. It is even better if you come with your own yacht! Here are some recommendations:
