This seemed like the perfect place to remind us why we were in Europe, particularly the historical French Rivera. Just like out of an old movie with Grace Kelly, it was sophisticated yet for the every day person, relaxing enough without being too busy with many little shops, ice cream, food and drink, alcohol even early in the morning.

We went to Nice in Christmas holidays and on Day 6 we took Bus number 100 from Nice to Monaco. The scenic beauty was excellent, try to take seat in the right side and keep the cameras ready for stunning picture for some views of sea with mountains and trees. Particularly the bus stop named “Escaliersde verre” (18 mins from... More

Not as big as Pampelonne beach near Saint Tropez. And also not as nice as beach in Cannes. Got it? So... it could serve if you live (or stay) there, but that's it.

Great food stands near the beach and ice cream bars...this place has it all including topless women of all ages right next to the kiddos. if you want lunch while you are at the beach go to La Note Bleue a beautiful white and blue restaurant with open beach seating! Dreamy memories of Larvotto

The beach is a stone or pebble beach albeit fine pebbles and with the concrete swim pontoons and platforms a wonderful place to swim and have fun in a safe and secure environment....check out the cool lifeguard hut.

We went November, so it was a little cooler, we would love to see it in the summer when the sun is red hot. A lovely place that you can walk along in the winter. Enjoying a sit down in one of the many restaurants and bars, enjoying a glass of wine, a beer or something to eat.

The beach is not the strong attraction of Monaco, but if you have the change to go, it's quite a unique sensation, The place is the bottom of the mountain, which a lot of huge buildings around you. If you look to the water, a loot of boats, the beach is made of very small stones. All these things combined... More

Be ware of this beach, form far it's okay, but this is not what you expect from Monte Carlo. First of all, very very crowded, stoney, and expensive. E.g. the price of a no name swimsuit is 100EUR or more. OK, this tis Monte Carlo, but almost the same quality can be bought at the supermarket for 5 EUR. This... More

I love this place and I spend a lot of time here with my son. The small stony beach is perfect. You don't get sand everywhere. The beach is clean and the water crystal clear. They have public toilets close by, restaurants and cafés and also a parc for children to play. The only thing I don't like is probably... More
