The Principality of Monaco is famed for its status as a tax free haven, its glamorous Casino and for the Formula 1 Grand Prix which tears around the world’s second smallest nation every year in May.
But what many people who are considering buying Monaco properties do not always realise, is that the country also boasts many wonderful beaches of all shapes and sizes.
Many of the beaches closest to our properties for sale in Monaco are private beaches, where you can relax in an exclusive environment with the services of a luxury five star hotel. However, many others are open to the public.
We have put together a guide for clients looking for properties for sale in Monaco, which can be found below:
- Arguably the most famous stretch of sand in Monaco is Lavortto Beach, located between the Grimaldi Forum and Monte Carlo Beach Hotel. Some areas of this beach, which is actually tiny pebbles rather than sand, are private, reserved for hotels and clubs. But great swathes of it are public and have sunbeds on offer to make your stay even more comfortable. Perhaps the best part about this beach is that a huge net keeps the jelly fish from encroaching on bathers. It is also rigorously cleaned every day and boasts a number of excellent bars and restaurants. There’s even a first class gym there too.
- The private Monte Carlo Beach is situated just next door – an exclusive paradise with its own salt-water pool as well. It’s a residents-only beach, but you may be able to go with someone who’s staying there.
- A hidden gem lies just passed the legendary Le Sporting Monte Carlo – a small stony beach which remains uncrowded, even at the height of summer, and is a great place to go for a bit of peace and quiet. No known name but well worth a visit.
- Below the Oceanographic Museum and close to some of our Monaco properties is a small public beach which can be accessed down a set of steps from the Quai des Pecheurs.
- Fontvieille is a popular district, here you will be close to the equally popular Plage Marquet, a quiet public beach in Cap d’Ail, just over the French border.
