1 – Sainte Marguerite Island – Bay of Cannes: Right in the middle of the Bay of Cannes, Sainte Marguerite Island is known for its military fort where the man in the iron mask was imprisoned. You will discover small secret beaches, turquoise water and stunning views of the Esterel coastal mountain range.
2 – The coves of the Esterel along the Corniche d’Or – Towards Saint Raphael, along the Corniche d’Or road connecting Saint-Raphaël to Cannes, you will find unbelievable landscapes similar to Wild West settings. Here you will encounter idyllic coves with crystal clear water and many rocks on which you can also rest. Our favorite place: the creeks of the small Canereit and the Cap Roux observatory point.
3 – Cap d’Antibes – the luxurious Bay of Billionaires and handle of the Argent Faux beach: Here look for Garoupe Beach where you will not find sand, but rather small platform s and rocks from which you can dive into the turquoise sea. Be sure to make a visit at the small port of Olivette, located at the beginning of Cap d’Antibes, where you will see some colorful traditional fishing boats.
4 – In Saint Jean Cap Ferrat – East side of the peninsulama, this small beach is nestled along rocky shorelines, which are decorated with Grecian style homes. High-class travelers mark their spot sleeping in swanky villas and eating overpriced sandwiches at seaside cafes. The Paloma Beach destination is ideal for those who want to yacht or sail the shorelines in style.
5 – Passable Beach – also in Saint Jean Cap Ferrat is bordered by the coastal path that reveals true marvels through beautiful hiking; discover natural landscapes and steep, century-old villas, coves, and more. A word of advice: arrive in the morning, the Riviera seaside resort town of Villefranche boasts beautiful morning lights.
6 – Roquebrune-Cap-Martin – towards Monaco La plage de la Buse is a little haven where you can relax and enjoy the crystal clear sea and observe the seabed around the Pointe de Cabbé.
7 – And our preferred beach – la Plage Mala in Cap d’Ail is a paradise nestled on the foot cliff, between rocks, and like most secret beaches of the region it is made of pebbles, gravel and sand. To take advantage of this remarkable natural setting where one feels cut off from the world, you will need to go down more than 150 steps or preferably by sailing there.
