One of the most beautiful walks at the Cote Azure
Aug 2020
One of the most beautiful and comfortable walks on the Cote Azure. We have walked this way since 1972 in all weather conditions and never have been tiered of it.
It’s so absolutely breathtaking.
Have fun and do it, it is safe!

Fantastic Walk
Aug 2020 • Couples
Quite simply one of our favourite walks ever. We often stay in Villefranche or Beaulieu and the first thing we do each time is this walk. It's around 14 or 15km, depending where you start, and takes 3.5-4 hours depending on pace. The Villefranche and south sides are more rugged, and you walk past many stunning houses you could only dream of living in.

The path can be quite rough at times, with some highish steps, but it's easily doable. In summer, there are many small areas on the rocks you can sunbathe on and swim from, but these always fill up by late morning at weekends.

There are water fountains at the lighthouse and the entrance to the little Cap, so you'll never go thirsty.

One thing I'd recommend is doing a boat trip around the Cap or to Monaco from Villefranche, as you get a better view of the houses and also see many you never see from the path.

A wonderful surprise hike

A friend wanted to see Paloma beach, and we saw the trails and did the hike. It's one of my most memorable portions of the trip. The views were amazing. The path is well maintained.

Pleasant afternoon stroll
Oct 2019
We travelled from Nice to Villefranche sur Mer by train and having walked around the village wanted to catch the bus from here to Port St Jean in Cap Ferrat. Our guide book and past Trip Advisor reviews quoted service #81. This wasn’t running but we established that service #15 runs from Nice through Villefranche sur Mer, Beaulieu sur Mer and onto Port St Jean (three per hour) and we caught this from the village centre €1.50 per person. The port area in St Jean has been recently redeveloped and there is an impressive array of shops and restaurants on the waterfront. There are atmospheric back streets and the entire village was very impressive.
We elected to complete the shorter Paloma Beach peninsula walk from the village centre and then walk back from Port St Jean along the Eastern pedestrian path to Beaulieu sur Mer before catching the bus back to Nice. The walk around the shorter peninsular takes around 45 minutes but there is an optional add on walk up to Chappell St Hospice a lovely 17th century chapel which takes around 10/15 minutes each way. There are free toilets by the roadside on the walk up to the top where there are elevated views as well as a spectacular 1m high black Madonna statue and a well kept Belgium war cemetery.
The walk around the peninsula is predominantly level on a well maintained path offering great coastal views.
The walk back to Beaulieu sur Mer provides similar views on a pedestrian only path and passes some spectacular mansions including one previously owned by the actor David Niven and takes 30/40 minutes.
A pleasant afternoon trip on a sunny day.

Beautiful walk
Sep 2019 • Couples
This was really a beautiful walk. Well paved and great views of the sea everywhere. We thoroughly enjoyed it. It took us a couple of hours to hike the entire peninsula and the smaller section by the church is worth it. Make sure you have time. Hike tjr main path, then go to port and pick up some lunch and hike that 2nd part and enjoy a picnic lunch. Lovely.

Beautiful , stunning views. MUST do!
Sep 2019 • Solo
There are a few hiking routes on St Jean Cap Ferrat. I took a bus from Nice and got off at the last stop in St Jean Cap Ferrat. The tourism office was just a few steps from the bus stop so it would really help you if you got a map there. The nice people in there will also tell you where the start of the hiking routes are. I did the longest route which wasn't even tough. It was easy and the view was incredibly stunning.

You can even swim halfway through the hike as there are steps down to the sea at certain stops. Bring water and snacks if you want to stop halfway just to enjoy the view. There is no toilet on the trail so get your bladder emptied before you start.

Photos are unedited. It's even more beautiful in life. Go and enjoy this hike. You will not regret it.
