And believe it or not, the densely populated Principality of Monaco – more famed for its Casino, F1 circuit, and status as a tax-free haven than for its natural beauty spots – possesses some wonderful beaches.
Indeed, within a short walk from most of our Monaco real estate is a stretch of beach just waiting to be explored.
A number of the beaches close to our properties for sale in Monaco are private beaches where customers can recline on luxury sun-loungers on the water’s edge before retreating to a table under a parasol for lunch out of the midday sun. These private beach clubs are usually open from May to October.
Other beaches located near our Monaco real estate are open to the public and accessible all year round.
If you are new to the principality or visiting properties for sale in Monaco and don’t know where to go for a bathe in the Med, why not browse our list below:
- The largest beach in Monaco is Larvotto Beach, situated between the Grimaldi Forum and Monte Carlo Beach Hotel. Some areas of this pebbled beach are private but great swathes of it are public, and all of which are protected from jelly fish by a giant net. There are a number of great restaurants, bars and shops along Larvotto Beach for every budget and taste as well as a diving school.
- The private Monte Carlo Beach is situated next door – an exclusive paradise with a salt-water pool as well as direct access to the sea. It’s a residents-only beach, but you may be able to go with someone who’s staying there.
- Fontvieille is a popular residential district and home to many of our properties for sale in Monaco. It is also within an easy meander of the excellent beach of Plage Marquet, which is actually located in Cap d’Ail, over the French border. There are a number of restaurants and bars here as well as a sailing school.
- For those who like to get away from the masses, head to the small beach which lies just passed Le Sporting Monte Carlo. This pebbly beach remains relatively uncrowded even at the height of summer.
- Another smallish beach is located directly below the Oceanographic Museum which can be accessed down a set of steps from the Quai des Pecheurs.
