Marina Description

The Port of Saint Tropez is located on the Northern side of the Cape of Saint-Tropez, just West of the Baie (Bay) des Canoubiers and East of Marines de Cogolin. The port has 800 berths of which 100 are visitor berths. The shelter of this early XXth century fishing village is good in the old part of the port. The “New Port” can be exposed to the strong Mistral, particularly in the winter.

You cannot buy a berth in St Tropez as you could in private marinas. Saint Tropez is a public harbour so you can only rent a berth and if you are allowed to moor there all year around, you are a part of a lucky few. The largest berths are located on the outer wall and along the main dock and promenade on the village’s waterfront. These are extremely desired berths, particularly during the summer. Should you wish to rent a berth, you are best to contact the harbour office directly or contact specialised berth booking agents. They will charge a premium for their assistance and may not always obtain a berth on the day you wanted it, as St Tropez harbour is after all a small fishing harbour which lacks the capacity to accommodate the demand it receives.

The Gulf of Saint Tropez is a very particular part of the Côte d’Azur. Unlike the bay of Cannes and the Eastern part such as Nice, Monaco and Menton, the coastal towns of the St Tropez Canton are relatively difficult access via road. The closest motorway exit 12 miles inland. You have drive along the recently extended D25, through a thick forest behing Roquebrune sur Argens to access the first coastal town of Sainte Maxime, which is on the other side of the Gulf from Saint Tropez. Consequently, the quickest way to reach St Tropez and its area is by sea... or by Helicopter!

The nearby ports and marinas are primarily designed for boats up to 15 and 17 meters. These are these private ports are the Marines de Cogolin, the Port of Ste Maxime, and some parts of Port Grimaud and Cavalaire. There is also the inland Port of Cogolin which lies just between Port Grimaud and Marines de Cogolin, along the Giscle River.
