Saint Tropez and Ramatuelle are very grateful for the creation of the beach restaurants, they are so popular with both locals and tourists, all nationalities and ages. The beaches here are fabulous, offering great quality food, service and there is really something for everyone.
Pampelonne beach runs approximately one mile long, where you find a large number of beach clubs.
It should also be known that most of these restaurants also have small boutiques selling fabulous clothes – bikinis, beach throw-overs, hats, kaftans, dresses etc. They are the towns secret finds, and have so many special and very unique items.
Le Club 55
Lets start with the famous Club 55. This has got to be the most well known restaurant in Saint Tropez, and maybe one of the worlds most famous lunch spots! In other words, it is considered to be ‘the place to be’ or should I say ‘the place to be seen’! I dont think that I have ever been there without seeing at least one celebrity, one is on the constant look out to see who else is coming! You will often see large tables sharing the raw vegetable basket, which never fails to disappoint and magnums of rosé! In addition, the beach store which is located just across from the restaurant offers a great collection of clothes, jewellery, home ware items.

Nikki Beach has a reputation of being the party place, which it indeed is. It is also a very beautiful setting, with wooden decking, under a white marquée, with a swimming pool in the centre.
However, it is not always crazy, and is certainly worth trying. They have an excellent DJ and good service.
Nikki Beach is not located on the beach front, it is just before, so sunbathing is around the swimming pool.
Excellent menu, and also a roasting corner, serving a selection of meats and wonderful roasted vegetables.
