Our opinion on the Pampelonne Beach

Adresse of the Pampelonne Beach : Route des plages 83350 Ramatuelle

Pampelonne Beach is the most well-known beach on the Saint-Tropez peninsula. It is located in the Ramatuelle area and is a long sand beach stretching out over close to 5 km.

This beach is divided into five sectors (from north to south): Moulins, Tamaris, Patch, Barraques and Bonne Terrasse.

For each of these sectors we find a parking lot (paid parking in season) close to the beach.

The Moulins zone of the Pampelonne Beach corresponds with the most northern part, bordering Tahiti Beach.

The Tamaris zone has a first-aid station. We also find a nudist zone (take the chemin de la Matarane).

On the Patch sector, an area is available for those who have reduced mobility. We can also find a first-aid station open during summer.

The Barraques zone is in the south of the Pampelonne Beach. This zone is less “have you seen me?” and more family friendly. Note that there is a nudist zone in the center of the beach.

By taking the route Bonne-Terrasse, we find the extreme south of the Pampelonne. A first-aid station is available here. Note that a waste disposal center is located nearby and can be disagreeable during the summer. But this zone is less frequented making it more agreeable.

Southern part of Ramatuelle Pampelonne Beach

Calm, the southern part of the Pampelonne Beach (route de Bonne Terrasse) is less posh. It is inconveniently close to a waste disposal area... Nearby we also find an area for camping cars.
