Cannes to St Tropez in March

It seems ferry rides are not running in March. Is the drive from Cannes to St Tropez suggested? Any ideas for stops along the way?

It will take about 1.5 hours in March on the A8, which is pretty boring, but if you stay on the coast road, which I think is a beautiful drive, you need to allow 2.5 hours + stops. There are many good scenic stops along the way but for specific towns then La Napoule, Agay, Saint-Raphael, Sainte Maxime.

Driving will not be a problem in March nor will parking. And St Tropez will be about as close to the original fishing village it was before the madness started. As wigwam says the only route to go is the wonderfully scenic coast road from Cannes to St. Raphael (this is known as the Golden Corniche and the landscape here is completely different to that of the Riviera east of Cannes) .

Agay is my suggestion for a stop mid way.

Good advice above.

The Corniche de Esterel coastal route provides a beautiful drive to St Tropez.

Would definitely recommend that you allow time for several scenic stops en route - the red rock backdrop is amazing.

Some Info and links here:

In March when the days are still not that long, suggest taking the autoroute back for speed

Thank you so much Soooz, W.B Loud-Glade, and wigwam3! Do you have any suggestions for eating along the way? Also, we will be staying in Nice for 4 days before a time in Monaco - any "must-do" suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
