Definitely worth a quick foot tour just to gape on the billionaires on their 100 Million dollar yachts. Scenic too.

Monte Carlo harbor is a showroom for yachts. Really all the harbors of the French Riviera have an abidance of yachts and this harbor is of no exception. The harbor is kind of boring though, nothing really to do except look at yachts and question where and how these people made their money. At the harbor, you can also see... More

If you love admiring gorgeous and luxurious yachts, take your time to stroll around. Plenty to see. Great coffee shops to accompany the scenery.

If you want to look at the yachts and cruisers of the rich and famous then this is the place to come. So many of these vessels are larger than your average house. Festooned with all the glam and glitter you would expect from this area. Buy a gelato and wander aimlessly for a while and soak in the atmosphere.

If you want to see how the other half live, then get to the harbour in Monaco, it is festooned with huge yachts, motor boats and other vessels which command millions to own and run. Watch the owners and hirers as they enjoy lunch on deck with waiter service and quaffing champers in the evenings, great people watching place.

A very large Harbor (when you walk all the way around) surrounded by restaurants, hotels, and shops. We were here for the Monaco Yacht Show, it was my first time, and it was incredible. The Harbor is filled with Massive Luxury Super Yachts. Many sights to see along the way. The entire harbor is surrounded by buildings that seem to... More

I honestly dont think I have seen quite so many boats, ships and liners of such scale and size and value anywhere else in the world- the beauty of the man made mirrors the beauty of the natural - great place to visit

Unless you are a russian billionaire, french noveau rich, a silicon valley enterprenuer or among the 0.1% in the world, this harbor will make you feel poor. During my visit, the yacht festival 2014 was going on which is one of the world's biggest yacht festivals. Except yachts you could buy helicopters, get luxury pool fittings or just shop for... More

The coastline of Monte Carlo is very beautiful especially in good weather. There are many statues, plantation areas, beaches and nicely kept structures on the route and strolling leisurely along will be a task that you never deny. Let us see what we have captured in our images during our trip there in late September.

This is far from idyllic. Boats are all crowded into slips that are barely big enough to accommodate them. I'd rather have a hundred feet of shoreline, a little privacy and a smaller boat any day.
