Saint-Tropez is a popular destination in the Côte d’Azur, known for its artists, beaches, and nightlife. There’s a nice mix running options in Saint-Tropez, from waterfront paths to some more rugged trail running options.
Waterfront and Citadel Tour. Put together a nearly 5 km route is along waterfront paths and then a climb to the historic citadel. A waterfront path starts near Pointe du Cimetière, curls around the 15th-century Tour Portalet (narrow and can can flooded), out to the lighthouse, and around the marina. After 3 km, use Rue de la Citadelle to do the popular 200m hill interval climb (there are also stairs!), and then run the back paths back to the start. ROUTE MAP
Sentier Littoral. Up to 16 km, 178m gain. This is a popular coastal path walk/hike that can also be a trail run of moderate difficulty. The full tour is a 16 km loop, some of it along the water and some above it. Path ranges from narrower, sand/dirt to some wider and on-road sections. If you don’t want to do the full loop, choose a section: It’s 5 km to Pointe de la Rabiou, 8 km to Cap des Salins, and 11 km to Cap du Pinet, where the route turns inland. Detailed description.
