“Great walk along the Cap”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

It took us 1hiur and 45mins to do the walk from hotel Royal Riviera in Saint Jean Cap Ferrat. It's quite a challenging walk as its not level and parts of the track are makeshift cobbled pats, quite narrow in parts. The track takes you high and low, the views from almost the entire path are FANTASTIC, we did it early in the ,pruning s to avoid the heat. Recommended!!

“A most scenic walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

A walk all round cap ferrat, the easten side on a largely cement path with views towards Monaco and Italy, the western (and more beautiful) side is mainly hard packed soil with stunning views to Nice and the Esterel in the distance also the Rade de Villefranche.

“Truly enjoyable...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

It's a fantastic promenade that takes about 2-2.30 hours if you follow the full route and 1.5 hours if you use the short cuts. If you take it easy, the route is relatively simple however if you keep the speed it is quite challenging. There are a few places on the way to stop for a coffee - private beaches Pasable and Paloma, you can also have a break in the village of St Jean. There a few wild spots for swimming, a bit rocky but beautiful... Recommended for those trying to stay in good shape while enjoying croissants in France :)

“easy costal walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

This little walk is a great way to explore Cap Ferrat. You enjoy nice views up and down the coast from Villefranche to Monaco, while getting away from the big city hustle of Nice.
