Beach Hopping in the French Riviera

Deciding that I did not want to jump into the Seine, I took a train from Paris to Nice and decided to test the different beaches along the French Riviera up until Monaco. What can I say? They all have the bluest water, the warmest sun, and very friendly locals.

Tips For Exploring the French Riviera:

  • Don’t be afraid of local transport. The trains and buses along the Riviera are only a few euros each way.
  • If you are staying in Monaco, eat and sleep in Beausoleil – a town on the French side of the border. It is adjacent to Monte Carlo and 20 times cheaper.
  • Prepare for the stairs. The towns along the Riviera are built on cliffs so walking up and down millions of steep stairs is inevitable.

Must Do’s in Nice:

  • Dip your feet in Florida Beach
  • Grab a drink at Neptune Beach
  • Walk the Promenade des Anglais
  • Sunbathe at Blue Beach
  • Swim in the Plage des Ponchettes
  • Go up La Colline du Château for the most incredible view of Nice
  • Wander around Vieille Ville

Must Do’s in Monte Carlo:

  • Take in the view at Le Rocher and the Port de Fontvieille from the Jardin Exotique
  • Explore Monaco’s caves – La Grotte de l’Observatoire
  • Visit the Prince’s Palace of Monaco
  • Sit by the Port Hercule at nighttime
