You can pay to sunbathe and swim here. It is a rocky bit of coastline so the loungers were worth it. You pay a slight premium for front row. It isn't cheap but you are paying for comfort and service. We also had lunch and the food was very good. Definitely worth stopping in if you want some privacy.

Easier to find that first thought, just follow their directions on-line. After we walked the 200 meter path, we were greeted with an amazing little paradise and friendly owners and staff. The kitchen was built into the cliff side and there was just enough space for 15 tables and about 30 beach chairs on the beach with egg shaped and... More

We had a wonderful time here, on this secluded beach with egg shaped pebbles, clear water and great views. The beach chairs on the first row cost extra (we did not know that). But all chairs come with towels, umbrella's and the use of bathroom and hot or cold shower. The prices in the restaurant were on the high end... More

We spent a marvelous time at this lovely beach. I agree with most of the comments regarding prices. But then we only live once!

We discovered this place on a trip to Italy two years ago and have been back twice on our return trip to Nice. Definitely don't miss this little piece of heaven. Secluded beach and excellent restaurant. Regarding the previous comment about portion sizes and prices, all I can say is it's comparable with any nearby restaurant of this calibre. And... More

We found this place by chance as we decided to walk a little further up the coast after our Balzi Rossi Archeological tour. If you are driving, there is no parking at the site but about 200 meters down the coast. We were there the last week of their season so the crowd was sparse and the chaise lounges on... More
