Yes! It is possible and we did it, catching the sun and swimming on 19th of March in Lavrotto Beach ;-) look to the right - Monte Carlo casino, look to the left Garibaldi Forum ;-) experience worth every minute of it ;-)

It's one of the better beaches on the French riviera/ monaco coastline. It's real sand for a start which makes it much nicer to take a stroll. I imagine in summer it's full of the rich and famous and people desperate to be noticed by the rich and the famous! This visit it was nice and peaceful.

It´s a good beach in Monaco. Very good place to enjoy a summer afternoon. There is also a good structure with showers, toilets and bars in front of the beach.

I suppose when you come to Monte Carlo, Monaco then the beach is not the reason for making this your destination. However with everything else going for it you would think they might spend a bit of money getting proper sand in. That said, it is a better quality than the rocks and pebbles up the coast in Nice.

...only in my imagination, lol. However, you do get to sunbathe with the locals. Beautiful beach and most importantly, FREE!!! The water was clean, clear and fresh! Warmest beach on the Mediterranean coast that I encountered. Great area to spend the day by yourself, with friends or family. Easily located near shops, restaurants, and excellent public facilities.

The only public beach in Monaco. There's a relaxed atmosphere, and plenty to do in terms of water and beach sports, including volleyball and rollerblading, jetski, windsurfing and sea-parachuting. 12 May-16 Sep, 8.30am-6pm; Jul-Aug weekends 9am-7pm Admission fee€2,20; over-sixties €1.50; 0-3 year-olds free.

the protected beach is even more protected now with a long net ... but there are still many fish swimming around, no jellyfish this year and the swimming is free...great sun and beach. (not too crowded either).

Larvotto beach is beautiful and a lot of fun with kids. There is a rock structure which you can walk and jump into the clear and crisp riviera water from. We watched a famous circus group from Montreal practice their jumps here. It is the most well groomed public beach we have ever been to. There are some nice restaurants.... More

This is a small beach. If you try of lying in the sun, there are plenty of water sports on offer, many souvenir shops and loads of places to eat and drink.
