Cannes to St Tropez Yacht Itinerary
Cannes to St Tropez Crewed Day Charter Itinerary - Discover Cannes, Îles de Lérins, Mandelieu La Napoule, Théoule sur Mer, Esterel, St Raphael, Fréjus & St Tropez
This itinerary covers the hot spots for a day charter along the stunning French Riviera combining fine dining, rustic towns, and stunning scenery as you travel from Cannes to St Tropez. It’s sure to be a memorable day out that you will want to do again and again!
Embark from the Old Port in Cannes where your luxury yacht will be waiting for you. Circle around the beautiful bay to see an unparalleled view of the Old Town and La Croisette disappearing into the distance.
Discover the Îles de Lérins, two magical islands only a stone’s throw away from the coast. Here you can dive into the clear Caribbean blue waters, perfect for snorkelling and having a splash around. If you have plenty of time, shake your legs on a hike around the islands to explore the 11th century Cistercian monastery and the dungeon where the legendary Man in the Iron Mask was held.
Spot the 14th century Château de la Napoule perched on the water’s edge. Anchor up and stop to see the museum’s vibrant art collection, as well as its enchanting gardens. If you happen to be anchoring up at lunchtime, dine at the 2* Michelin restaurant L’Oasis to taste their traditional Provencal menu. We would recommend booking in advance to ensure a table!
If you find that you’re enjoying yourself so much, past La Napoule you will find yourself in the quaint hillside town of Theoule-sur-Mer, which has several beaches and beach restaurants such as Les frères de la baie popular for their superb fresh fish and Mediterranean inspired dishes. You could even follow the locals to enjoy a simple, yet delightfully delicious lunch in one of the side streets at Le Coup D'Fourchette.
Navigate past beautiful small port towns as you approach the Esterel, an enormous and stunning rock formation. Pop open a bottle of bubbly before continuing to cruise past long powdery beaches and Roman ruins of the historical towns of Saint-Raphaël and Fréjus, known as where Napoleon landed upon his return from Egypt.
Arrive at the world-renowned Pampelonne Beach and feel the white sand beneath your feet whilst sipping a cocktail at one of the private beach clubs. Make your reservations for any of the numerous restaurants and anchor offshore along with the Mangustas, Rivas and hundreds of other beautiful yachts. Head to the other side of the peninsula and discover the picturesque and cobbled Old Town of St Tropez and shop in boutiques lining the town’s winding streets.
Choose from the charming Old Town restaurants, each unique in their character such as Auberge des Maures, a favourite of Charlie Chaplin and David Niven in the 50s. Or simply stay on the beach and enjoy a relaxing lunch at Zanzibar for the perfect pizza on Pampelonne! For the classic beach club restaurant, head to the famous Club 55. If you want a “night club during the day” experience, Nikki Beach is the place for you!
Sadly, you need to return your yacht to Cannes after a memorable day out. The return trip along the coast will take you back past all the sights of the morning, but will take you no longer than an hour and a half in a motor boat, so sit back and enjoy the wind in your hair as you relax in the afternoon sunshine.
