Beaches around Nice

Plage de l'Opera, Nice

The Côte d'Azur is renowned for les plages (beaches) which stretch from Menton in the east to St-Tropez in the west. Of course there are plenty of great beaches to the west of St-Trop right up to and including Marseille and I will include a few of them here.

Beaches can be either public or private - see the Practical Info section below.

Starting in the east there are 5 great beaches at Menton. My favourites are the easternmost ones, Sablettes and Rondelli, near the old town. There are also a couple of good beaches next door at Roquebrune-Cap-Martin.

Plage de Fossan, Menton

Moving west, the beach below the impressive Medieval vilage of Eze known simply as the Plage d'Eze boasts some of the cleanest seawater on the Riviera.
