No one walks to the beach in St. Tropez, not because it’s unfashionable not to yacht there, but BECAUSE IT’S TOO FAR AWAY!!! That and most patrons (a.k.a. celebs and other importants) just don't walk around idly anyway. Well, HOURS later, we're still walking.
At one point, we're trekking through a VINEYARD. I fall off the road while watching a thonged woman cruise by on a Vespa (she looked uncomfortable!). I fall, scrape up my leg, and blood gushes. We finally get there and it’s not much cooler than any other beach on the Riviera, just more exclusive BECAUSE IT’S IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE.
Learn from me: don't walk to the beach in St. Tropez.
