Saint Raphael is a town in the department of Var in southeastern France, on the Mediterranean coastline. It borders the slightly larger town of Frejus, seperated by the River Pedegal.

It was established as a medieval city, and later became a popular spa town.

Today, Saint Raphael is known for its rocky and well-kept beaches, harbor, maritime activities, and downtown area.
