Pse help me say, 'Thank you'!

On a recent cruise, I was in Ville Franche for the day and decided to visit Cap Ferrat. I used the 81 bus on the 'Ligne d'azur' bus route from Octroi and stopped for a swim at a beach very accessible from the road on the way back. Unfortunately, I can't remember the name! Opposite the bus stop is a cafe, the owner of which took me back to the Port at Ville Franche in her own car in time to get the last ferry to the ship. Without her help I would, quite literally, have missed the boat! Of course, I want to send her something to thank her for her unusual kindness. I'm ashamed to say, though, that I've lost the address (on a small scrap of paper), but wondered if anyone might know the cafe or recognise the beach or bus stop.

This is a summary of the details:-

On the no. 81 ‘Ligne d’Azur’ bus route

Opposite a beach approximately one stop from the harbour at Cap Ferrat (a couple of stops from the nursery school) on the way back to Octroi

There is a bridge adjacent to the café with the road going under and railway above

I really would be most grateful for any help.

maybe it's "Le Petit Chose" opposite the Beaulieu beach?
