Maybe it’s because I’m Australian and used to large amounts of personal space, but I find myself less and less inclined to want to be lined up only inches from my ‘neighbours’ on a beach.

Luckily minutes away from me lies the peninsula of Cap Ferrat, a stunningly beautiful and peaceful part of the Cote d’Azur coastline with small rocky coves of crystal clear water accessible only by foot or boat.

All you have to do is grab your snorkel and flippers, step off the main roads or jump in a Fun Yak boat and head to one of them for some gorgeous rock space and swimming.

Directions

If you are based in Villefranche or Nice take the bus no 81 and get off at the stop for the Rothschild Villa, head away from Villefranche and only meters away on the right is the sign to Plage Passable, head down to the beach, turn left when you get down there, walk through the private restaurant and follow the path until you see steps leading down to the rocks, this path will take you around the Peninsula. (You can walk from Villefranche to Plage Passable in around a 30 to 40minutes).

From Beaulieu you can walk to Plage Passable in around 20 minutes, however you can also take the 81 bus (marked to St Jean Cap Ferrat, not the 81 marked Nice) and get off once again at the Rothschild Villa stop.

    • Hi Marg, oooh I do love a wide open beach, just not one with a mass of people squeezed onto it!! I have been in these areas in August and they were not overrun, its all about the accessability….it’s amazing how a walk in can seem to deter some people (all the better for us however)! x

  1. Millie your site is a delight and your images are exquisite. The colour, the clarity and the composition are a delight. I too am a fan of a “private” little swimming coves instead of the crowded beaches dotted along the coast.
