Unfortunately limited parking place with limited access for transport of own equipment, well organized shop with very polite shop assistence. Boat and dive spot was ok. Treatment by dive guide was really bad. No 'Hallo', no 'warm up' before the dive preparations. Heavy instructions before...More

Decent swimming from pebble beach, water warmer than other locations, reasonably clear, showers on beach, easy access from promenade car parking, plenty of eating and shopping options, much use by locals too.

Parking at the harbour is an easy option, and a short walk in either direction will take you to the beach or into town. It's a really scenic place with the backdrop of hills and the town in the foreground. Pretty place. Atop the sea...More

We have visited Menton in July 2016 and we were pleasingly surprises with the prices (much lower vs Nice/Cannes) and the sand which is amazing! Strongly recommend to visit. The only disadvantage-the toilets are located not so close
