Bay Canebiers: an unspoiled natural area just 200 m from Hotel Sezz Saint TropezThe Bay’s sandy beach is undoubtedly the one that Tropezians would choose themselves. And for good reason: it’s close to the city centre and easily accessible, and pine trees provide shade from the afternoon sun. Plus, swimming is supervised during peak season. The beach is famous for its proximity to Colette’s house, and also to ‘La Madrague’ of Brigitte Bardot which inpsired the song of the same name. This iconic beach was also the setting for the film series ‘gendarmes’ and played host to its film crews and stars.
Take the coastal path towards plage de la MoutteFollow your heart and take the coastal path from Bay Canebiers to plage de la Moutte. You’ll enjoy pristine landscapes and small coves as you make your way along the road, and be sure that you’ll want to stop to relax for a moment at the beautiful spot by the Rabiou creek. Once on the Moutte beach, you’ll be dazzled by the soothing atmosphere and the clear light that dapples the sea with azure blue and emerald green. You can enjoy a revitalising dip in the Mediterranean, and Hotel Sezz Saint Tropez will be delighted to provide you with towels for the beach.
Head south to the sublime beach at Salins on the Sezz roadFurther from the center of Saint-Tropez, this beautiful white sand beach is ideally located between scrubland and clear blue sea. 500 meters of sand and sea awaits you. Salins Beach and cove is on the same road as the Sezz and offers a tranquil and relaxing oasis, particularly during summer.
La Ponche beach downtownLocated in the old town district of Ponche, between the tower and the Old Portalet tower, this little secluded beach is a quiet haven close to the city centre.
