THere is no train on this portion of the coast. Renting a car and taking advantage of it to go to St Tropez ?

And Grimaud, that I find more beautfiul than Port Grimaud. well not necessarily more beautiful but more authentic.

The bus no 7601 runs from St Raphael to Port Grimaud on the way to St Tropez. Runs every 60 to 90 minutes and takes an hour and a quarter ( I don't think they take into account bif traffic jams on this road in the summer).

You ask on a duplicate post 'is Port Grimaud worth it ?' Unless you have some very special reason for going there - no, it's not for a day trip. There are plenty of other more convenient places to spend a day near Nice.

Agree with Ed, definetely not worth any detour. When you happen to come along by car (or boat) and have some time (45 min.) to spend, check it out, but otherwise...

If you do want to try the 7601 bus (final destination St Tropez), you can find the timetable at www.varlib.fr. The bus leaves from St Raphael bus station which is right beside the rear entrance to the railway station. The fare is Euro 3 one way - a bargain, but don't expect the bus to be on time and be prepared for a very slow journey because of traffic congestion, particularly in peak season starting mid-July.
