The French Riviera Sights

Le Sentier du littoral (coastal path)

  • Trail/Path

Updated 12/18/2013

Fodor's Review

To experience St-Tropez's natural beauty up close, consider walking parts of the Sentier du littoral around the peninsula and all the beaches to Cavalaire-sur-Mer. Try the 12.5-km (7-mile) route to Plage de Tahiti and its longish stretches on sand beach, which takes an average of 3½ hours. Leave from the Tour du Portalet or the Tour Vieille at the edge of the Quartier de la Ponche. Follow the footpath from Plage des Graniers along the beaches and cliffs overlooking the water, often with views toward the Estérel or out to the open sea. At Tahiti beach you can walk the 3 km (2 miles, 50 minutes) back to town or continue another 5 km (3 miles, 90 minutes) along the Plage de Pampelonne to Bonne Terasse. From here it gets serious, with another 19 km (12 miles, 6 hours) to Cavalaire to complete the entire trail. But you'll need to plan ahead to catch one of the few buses back to St-Tropez. Otherwise, it's 18 km (11 miles) back to town.
