St. Tropez Weather, When to Go and Climate Information

(St. Tropez, Provence-Alpes Cote d'Azur, France)

Bird's-eye view of St. Tropez coast and harbourSaint Tropez truly does bask in sunshine and the climate of the French Riviera is known for its mild weather. This means that during the summer, when the skies are blue and the climate is at its hottest, the beaches soon become busy, with tourists relaxing and topping up their tan.

The climate in June is particularly warm, although temperatures in Saint Tropez do make a notable rise in July and August, when sunny weather and the adjacent Mediterranean Ocean both have a strong influence on the highs. Both July and August tend to average around 27°C / 81°F, although daytime peaks of 30°C / 86°F or more are quickly becoming less unusual and almost commonplace at times.

Seasonal Climate Variations / When to Go

Summer evenings in Saint Tropez are particularly pleasant and visitors welcome the opportunity to sit outside and enjoy a meal underneath the night-time stars. However, occasional sea breezes can have a cooling affect and so a jacket may be required on some nights. Worth noting, summer does not only tend to experience the sunniest weather, but also the driest.

The climate in both spring and autumn is noticeably cooler, although really still very warm and appealing. Daytime temperatures in May and October both hover around 20°C / 68°F, and there is still plenty of French Riviera sunshine at this time of the year, although the likelihood of rainy weather is slightly increased. However, in Saint Tropez, even during the wettest month of November, rain only falls on an average of seven days in the whole month.

The winter climate in Saint Tropez remains well above freezing, both day and night, and this resort is becoming an increasingly popular location for a Christmas holiday, with December seeing temperatures as high as 15°C / 59°F.
