Saint-Raphael is a commune in the department of Var, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region, southeastern France. Right to the west of Saint-Raphael lies an older town named Frejus, and together they form the urban agglomeration Frejus Saint-Raphaël. Var lies in an area called Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, abbreviated to PACA. In 1799 Napoleon Bonaparte along with his forces arrived from Egypt by ship, prior to his coup d'état in Paris, landing at a fishing village which was the commune of Saint-Raphael.
During the second half of the 19th century the township came under influence of writer Alphonse Karr and mayor Felix Martin, and owing to their efforts and the beneficial climate of the commune, it developed into a seaside resort much popular with artists, politicians and sportsmen.
Saint-Raphael has a total area of 89.59 km2 (34.59 ml2) and a population of around 34,500 inhabitants. The commune features a total of 36 km (22 ml) of Mediterranean coastline, owing to the many creeks and coves formed between the sea and the natural region of Esterel Massif. This places it 2nd only to Marseilles, with 57 km (35 ml) of coastline. In the west the commune is almost completely urbanised, but includes more than 60 km2 (23 ml2) of protected natural forest and Esterel mountains.
Saint-Raphaël has 4 large sandy beaches: one close to the city centre, named Veillat; one at Le Dramont; one at Boulouris, and the 4th at Agay. There are 2 smaller ones at Le Trayas and Antheor.
