The Côte d'Azur is one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world, and there are several companies that allow you to savor its scenery from the water. April through October, shuttle boats operated by Les Bateaux Verts make the trip between St-Tropez and Ste-Maxime in 15 minutes (€13.50 round-trip). Trans Côte d'Azur vessels, departing from Nice and Cannes, go to Corniche de l'Estérel (€47 round-trip), and St-Tropez (€63 round-trip); note that some routes are only available from May to early October.
