Paloma was closed for the day... and that is OK

The wife and I visited St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat looking for a nice beach, and we found it with Plage de Passable. After trying the public beaches and being disappointed by the number of jellyfish, we decided to try Paloma, but they were closed for a private party. As we did not travel with beach... read more

Plage de Passable is set in a very small and private beach on the Cap Ferrat headland however within the bay of Villefranche. this location provides a spectactular view across the bay to the cruiseships, superyachts and the small town of Villefranche. We arrived by boat and there is a tender (taxi) service to take guests into the restuarant, this... More

Terrible welcome by staff at the beach.... Terrible place to o, staff is very unwelcoming and makes jokes of the guest, truly a one of a kind experience, never before seen anywhere, where the adult staff pulls faces at guests and laugh out loud. We left this place on our boat as fast as we could!

Book ahead for your lounger and lunch table! This is the place to see and be seen. A lot of Italians come to this beach to get away from their own I suppose, so when we lie down we hear Italian spoken around us. The loungers are very comfortable, but they can be a bit too close together for us.... More

This had to be the worst beach we visted whilst on holiday in the area. The beach itself looks like its made up of building rubble, the right hand side being a public area and the left hand side having the restaurant and sun bed hire. I cant understand why people would want to go and sit on piles of... More

It looks as if they're really trying to spiff the place up... and it's working. Although this locale continues to receive mixed reviews, we had a very good experience having dinner there in late June. Excellent sea bass... also ample, tasty Escalaope de Dinde a la Milanaise. Our waiter was wonderful... couldn't be more attentive and helpful. I also really... More

We discovered Plage Passable over coffee one morning en route to the coastal walk around Cap Ferrat. The coffee, service and environment were good enough to make us set aside a day for a return visit. This is a brilliant, sheltered little beach for a swim, looking across at the magnificent scenery of the Corniche. We hired lounges (matelas) and... More

While it was a bit chill for a swim, we enjoyed lunch on the beach after our visit to the Villa Ephrussi (see my review), followed by a walk around the headland. The beach looks directly across the bay to Villefranche Sur Mer, itself worth a visit. Take the no. 81 bus from Nice, get off at the Passable stop,... More
