A decadent highlight of every summer season, Nikki Beach regularly holds ultra-glam White parties; Saint Tropez’s most extravagant and fun party of the year. The poolside action starts from midday and it’s a place where pretty much anything goes – as long as it’s wearing white.
White parties initially started in St-Tropez some fifty years ago, and have since become a regular highlight on social calendars, taking place all over the world, from Miami to Hong Kong, Marbella, Ibiza, Cyprus and Dubai. Two elements are constant – the vibe is electric, and the dress code is serious.
What to expect at the famous white parties Of Saint Tropez
The white theme provides a stunning backdrop, with white tablecloths and crockery, white flowers, balloons and decorations, white cushions piled high on the chairs and luxurious, generously-sized daybeds in – you guessed it – white. Expect poolside fun with a fashion show and an array of exotic entertainment, from carnival-style entertainers and stilt walkers in outrageous costumes to guest magicians, jugglers and professional dancers.
There’s music from world-class DJs and performers and a sumptuous spread of seafood, innovative canapes and exquisite macaron. These are all washed down with cocktails served in white glasses, and of course Champagne, its white froth sprayed, Formula-1 podium-style, as the evening goes on. Pack a white bikini just in case you get caught! Chilled rosé wine, despite contravening the colour code, also flows freely.
