Plage Paloma Beach, St Jean Cap Ferrat

A fine pebble beach with watersports, great for families
Featured in: Beaches Updated

Away from the hustle and bustle of the Port, Paloma Beach is a delightful little haven with more than a touch of 1950’s Riviera glamour.

The sheltered beach gets the sun early and keeps it all day - you are surrounded by beautiful views of Cap d’Ail and Beaulieu, with luxury yachts bobbing in the bay and pine-covered cliffs to the east.

Beach Bars & Beachclubs in Nice

The Paloma beach club and restaurant is open daily from Easter until the end of September; their menu includes fresh grilled fish and local specialities. Given their impressive roll-call of celebrity guests we figure it must be pretty good - over the years they’ve welcomed Winston Churchill, Ivana Trump, Jack Nicholson, Roger Moore, Tom Cruise, Sean Connery, Mick Jagger, to name just a few...

It’s not just the reserve of the rich and famous though, there is a reasonably sized section of public beach as well. Even if you are not a customer of the restaurant you can still buy ice creams and drinks from them and hire water sports equipment.
