After countless charters we know where our guests love to go, what they have enjoyed and what each place can offer. Here are some beach restaurants that are all special in their own way; offering different cuisine, location and experiences. Which one catches your eye?
Club 55 - St Tropez
Club 55 originated, appropriately, in 1955 when Brigitte Bardot was filming And God Created Women on Pampelonne Beach and the director asked a fisherman's hangout if they could cook for the cast. It's been almost synonymous with the St Tropez beach scene since then, and never disappoints. This desirable restaurant is where celebrities are desperate to visit when they are in St Tropez, don't be surprised if you're rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous in this exclusive beach club.
As you can see from the image above, fresh and healthy cuisine is their forte, the portion sizes are generous and the quality is superb.
