"St Raphael" Saint-Raphaël by NiceLife

Saint-Raphaël Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 12 photos

Development blight

How could anyone do it? Siting an eight floor hideous pink block of apartments next to this beautiful church! Developers and probably corrupt local officials have blighted this otherwise ordinary little seaside resort, transforming it into an eyesore.

St Raphael

Its got a sandy beach, but very little else to commend it, apart from the harbour from which you can catch a boat to St Tropez for the day.

In the distance you can see cranes towards Frejus, where yet more ugly blocks of flats are being erected.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Boat connection to St Tropez
  • Cons:Characterless plain seaside resort
  • In a nutshell:You can do better than this.
