Castel Beach – Promenade des Anglais, Nice

For this first turquoise spot, we propose to you the first private beach of the Promenade des Anglais, Castel Plage. Behind Rauba-Capeu is this magnificent private beach. A real institution in Nice. We love it for its decor, its amazing view of the Baie des Anges and its fresh Mediterranean dishes but also its accessibility! To get there, go to the Promenade des Anglais next to the famous structure #IloveNice. As a reminder, all the beaches of Nice have pebbles, remember to take your “Méduse” (beach shoes).

Passable Beach, Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat

Facing the harbor of Villefranche, you are the private beach Passable. This sublime beach known for its orange furniture is a real little oasis. Its exposure is the best, you will have the right to the sun all day long until it sets. This luxurious beach has its own valet parking and boat access. Its plus is that it offers water sports activities or the possibility of having a massage. You can also come and enjoy a delicious meal during the day or in the evening, you will be seduced by its spectacular setting facing the city of Villefranche.
Our tips: just next door, there is a small public beach that is quickly full, but empties at the end of the day, perfect for watching the sunset.

Beach of Mala, Cap-d’Ail

This little corner of paradise is located between two natural cliffs. Its wild aspect and its translucent water make this beach unique. We like it for its calm side which gives us the impression to be in the middle of an island. 

On the other hand its access is more difficult because it is necessary to borrow a long staircase of a hundred of steps (that it will be necessary to think of going up at the end of the day). For the most privileged, a boat access is possible.
Once at the bottom of the stairs, you can access the public beach or the two private beaches: La Réserve de la Mala with a chic and musical atmosphere on weekends or Eden Palace for an exotic atmosphere.
Our tips: don’t hesitate to take your fins and snorkels to admire the fish.
