  • In the top :)
  • Popular beach on the French Riviera, very touristy with a beach edge that loses its charm as the old center of Menton moves away. but the water remains turquoise and services such as showers and trash cans are available all along. PS the beach is a mixture of sand and pebbles.
  • Nice for those who like pebbles and rocks in the off season almost people (1 nudist or far away😂), regulars and shower to rinse off! When I pass by there 1 small pose before returning to Nice..😉👍
  • Easy access, showers in operation. Right now it's easy to find a place to settle. Bring shoes because it is a pebble beach.
