In Saint Tropez, everything is famous - especially the beaches. At the town's heart is the harbour, filled with some of the world's most expensive yachts. There's also the Place des Lices where movie stars and local stars get together to play a game of boules or sip Pastis under the plane trees.
There are at least 40 beaches on the peninsula from Bouillabaisse Beach to Plage de Pampelonne. Plage de Pampelonne is the most famous among the beaches, and the place where topless sunbathing first shocked the world.
It's a five kilometre stretch of white sand lined with cafes and restaurants, including the renowned Club 55. The club started in 1955, the year Bridget Bardot came to town to star in a movie called And God Created Woman. The very north end of this is Plage de Tahiti, traditionally well-known as a famous haunt of celebrities.
Something you must do in Saint Tropez is look the part, and part of that is wearing leather Tropeziennes sandals purchased from K Jacques.
You'll also need somewhere to stay.
