Beaulieu-sur-Mer is an elegantly old fashioned Riviera coastal town filled with Belle Epoque buildings, cafés and restaurants.
Beaulieu-Sur-Mer is one of the many beautiful towns that are dotted along the Riviera sea front. In between Nice and Monaco, it is easy to get to by train or bus, both of which run regularly up and down the coast. It is a quiet, sophisticated kind of a place that has attracted many celebrities over the years looking for a tranquil haven in which to soak up the sun without getting hassled. The seafront, beaches and ports are its main points of interest but there is also a good market that takes place in the town centre every day where you can browse fresh local produce, as well as the occasional bric-a-brac market.
Sandwiched between Nice and Monaco it attracts a wealthy crowd and its two marinas make it very popular with the yachting set. There are around 800 boats permanently moored here, meaning that there is plenty going on around the two ports.
Backed by sheer cliffs, you can also drive or hike high above the town on one of the paths to enjoy magnificent views of the sea.
