The city of Toulon is 50kms to the West and Cannes is 70kms to the East.

It has been popular with the ''jet set'' since it was discovered by Brigitte Bardot in 1956 when she was filming Roger Vadim's And God Created Woman. The film, which included many shots of scantily-clad Bardot pouting seductively on the golden sand, was a huge hit and put Bardot and Saint Tropez firmly on the world's radar.
