L'Escalet Beach, Ramatuelle

One of the Saint Tropez region's hidden gems
Featured in: Beaches · Updated


The coastline between Cape Taillat and Cape Camarat is a succession of prety little beaches, coves and rocky inlets, with translucent waters over the polished rocks or golden sands.

Situated on the south side of Cap Camarat, l’Escalet beach is a small half-sand, the half-pebble beach which, despite its remoteness, has all the required facilities such as toilets, showers and a lifeguard. There are also a couple of snack bars where you can buy food and drinks, but there is very little after that, so make sure you have a backpack filled with picnic treats.

There is a paid parking close by or free parking spots along the road.

Beach Quality

The first beach you walk to is a mixture of pebbles and sand, and can get quite crowed, mainly because many people don’t want to walk too much farther for their sunbathing spot. However, it only takes about 5-10 minutes to arrive at the next beach cove, which has the clearest water and perfect white sands. 

Watersports Nearby

Masks and snorkels are a must to explore the seabed! The coastline and its native species are protected and belongs to the Conservatoire National du Littoral.
