Transportation from Nice to other beaches

Hi, I am going to stay in Nice the last week in July, but I would like to go to visit some sandy beaches. Is there some train pass that I can buy that I can use for a week? What is the price? Do teenagers pay the same price? Is this pass good to go to Ventigmilia?

Thank you

SNCF don't do any passes as you describe they are preoccupied with marketing discounts. Under 25s get a discount, holders of Carte Senior get a discount, members of Armed Forces get a discount, everyone gets a discount except me - I get nothing.

The fares are fairly small - Nice Ventimiglia is about 14 euro return adult as best I recall, Nice - is around 11 euro return. Its no big deal. Save more still by taking the bus - 1.30 flat fare between Menton and Cannes. Silly price.

Enjoy those beaches but check first before jumping in for Pelagia Noctiluca - purple stinging jellyfish. The very warm water (25C+) this year has led to a big growth in their numbers in the Med. Sometimes its clear, other times theres swarms of the little devils!
