Cap de Saint-Tropez, the E extremity of a peninsula, is bordered E and NE by foul ground.
Basse du Verhuge lies about 2 miles ESE of the cape and has a depth of 13.7m. This shoal is dangerous in bad weather when the sea breaks violently over it.
Teste-de-Can, a group of three above-water rocks, lies 0.5 mile SE of the cape and is prominent. A rocky ledge extends up to about 1 mile NE of the cape and its seaward edge is marked by a lighted beacon. Basse du Nord-Est, a detached rocky patch, lies close ENE of the lighted beacon and has a least depth of 4m.
Le Saint Julien, a bank, lies 4 miles E of the cape and has depths of 53 to 70m.
Pointe de la Rabiou is located 1.2 miles NW of Cap de Saint-Tropez. The coast between is 30 to 60m high and prominent. A rocky ledge extends about 0.3 mile N from a point on the coast, 0.5 mile SE of Pointe de la Rabiou. It has depths of less than 5m, is awash at the seaward extremity, and is marked by a beacon.
A rocky shoal, with a least depth of 6.2m, lies about 0.5 mile N of Point de Rabiou and is marked by a beacon.

Le virage autour du cap de Saint-Tropez est une des routes les plus fréquentées de Provence. Par vent frais d'E, la mer peut être agitée jusqu'à plus de 2 milles sur les hauts fonds de moins de 20m.
Au N de la baie de Pampelonne, on peut laisser à petite distance à l'E les roches de la Teste de Can dont la plus haute roche porte la statue d'une sirène. Le passage est profond de 5,50m mais attention au haut fond des Casteous qui déborde le rivage.
La plage des Salins, au N de la Teste de Can offre un bon mouillage sur fond de 2 à 5m.
Pour virer le cap de St Tropez que prolonge un éperon de roches affleurantes, se tenir à 2/3 de distance du rivage et à 1/3 de la tourelle de la Moutte où l'on a une profondeur de 3m.
Les roches de la Croisette débordent le cap de St Tropez de 320m, il faut les doubler à environ 200m.
Entre la pointe de Rabiou et la tourelle qui la déborde à 600m au N, attention à la roche affleurante de l'Ay .
Du fait de la circulation toujours intense en été, la vitesse est limitée à moins de 5 noeuds tout autour du cap de Saint Tropez.
