During high season, those in the know avoid horrendous four-hour traffic bottlenecks on the one road into St-Tropez (and €40 parking, which is nonetheless hard to find) by parking in Port Grimaud or Ste-Maxime and taking a Les Bateaux Verts shuttle boat.


Les Bateaux de St-Raphaël Seasonal boats between St-Tropez (Nouveau Port) and St-Raphaël (one way adult/child €15/10, one hour).

Les Bateaux Verts

Sea Taxi Taxi boat for hire around St-Tropez. A crossing from St Tropez to Ste-Maxime is €80 during the day, and €100 after 10pm.

Trans Côte d'Azur Ferries from Nice and Cannes.


VarLib tickets cost €3 from the bus station for anywhere within the Var département (except Toulon-Hyères airport). Destinations include Ramatuelle (35 minutes, up to six daily) and St-Raphaël (1¼ to three hours, depending on traffic, hourly) via Grimaud and Port Grimaud, and Fréjus.

Buses to Toulon (two hours, seven daily, fewer in summer) stop at Le Lavandou (one hour) and Hyères (1½ hours).

Buses serve Toulon-Hyères airport (€15, 1½ hours), but some require a transfer.


By train, the most convenient station is in St-Raphäel, which is served by Les Bateaux de St-Raphaël boats in high season, or a slower VarLib bus. There is no luggage storage at the train station (or any public place in the Var).
