Getting there & away
St-Tropez bus station (av Général de Gaulle) is on the southwestern edge of town on the main road. There’s an information office (04 94 54 62 36; 8am-noon & 2-6pm Mon-Fri, 8am-noon Sat) at the station. Sodetrav (04 94 12 55 12; Hyères) has eight buses daily from St-Raphaël-Valescure train station to St-Tropez bus station, via Fréjus (€9.50, 1¼ hours). Eight daily buses from St-Tropez to Toulon (€18.20, 2½ hours) also stop at Le Lavandou and Hyères.
To avoid the worst of the high season traffic, approach from the Provençale Autoroute (the A8) and exit at Le Muy (exit 35). Take the D558 road across the Massif des Maures and via La Garde Freinet to Port Grimaud, then park here and take the shuttle boat that runs to St-Tropez from Easter to October.
Les Bateaux Verts (04 94 49 29 39; www.bateauxverts.com ; Ste-Maxime) operates a shuttle-boat service from St-Tropez to Ste-Maxime (one way adult/child €6/3.20, 20 minutes) and Port Grimaud (one way adult/child €5.50/3, 15 minutes), with reduced schedules outside peak season. In summer and autumn, Les Bateaux de St-Raphaël (04 94 95 17 46; www.tmr-saintraphael.com ; St-Raphaël) runs boats from St-Tropez to St-Raphaël (adult/child €11/7, 50 minutes).
