Saint-Tropez Insider Beach Club Guide
Most beach clubs in Saint Tropez have a tender service to collect guests from their yachts.
Bring some cash to tip (€10-15) the tender guy.
Not all beach clubs are created equal: some are unsuitable for children and don’t allow pets, while Niki Beach has a swimming pool.
Be aware of your belongings: there are some pickpockets occasionally.
Reservations are compulsory in high season (mid-July to mid-August).
Book well in advance (2 or 3 weeks): booking a table at August’s most popular beach clubs is difficult.
Follow the guidelines and dress code when visiting: no flip-flops, no swimwear, and a casual chic dress style is required. Avoid wearing sportswear or casual wear.

” For the second time, we have had an amazing day charter with Charterminute. The boat was incredible for our party of 12 to enjoy all day, and we had a wonderful and attentive crew. Fairly last minute, we ended up needing a larger boat than expected and Remi was beyond kind with assisting us. He also assisted us with reservations and made sure the entire day was seemless. 10/10 recommend! “
