Our opinion on the Douane Creek

Adresse of the Douane Creek : Sentier du Littoral 83350 Ramatuelle

Douane Creek is one of the most beautiful creeks in the Gulf of Saint-Tropez. Located on the coastal path toward Cape Taillat (leaving from Escalet Beach) we find a white fine sand beach and emerald waters. This creek is frequented by the regulars or by hikers.

To get here, park in the lot near Escalet Beach (this lot is farthest to the right – you'll have to pay in the summer but you'll only have a 10 minute walk) then turn right to get to the coastal path. Going toward Cape Taillat, we find many small creeks (and rocks). Douane creek is situated 200 meters after Escalet Cape and 600 meters before Cape Taillat. It's not difficult to get to this creek since the path is well landscaped.

Note that there are some nudists (even though nudism is not permitted in this zone).

This little creek of Ramatuelle is remarkable. In a green area and situated near the coastal path which leads to Cape Taillat, we have the impression of being at the edge of the world.
