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.

Overall, you are able to get without harm into the water, as the entry is not that steep and rocky as in Nice. However, we had impression that water is less clean.

It is a rock beach... so not the most comfortable, but close to a car park and it clean. Has private beds available to hire.
