Beaches in Monaco and nearby for family of four.

Jump to last reply

My family of four (two boys 13 & 15) will be staying in Monte Carlo for four days this August and will surely want to spend some time at the beach. It sounds like the easiest option would be the public Larvotto beach right in Monte Carlo. Although it's public it sounds like chairs/umbrellas can easily be rented right there. Does anyone have any more specific information for this beach?

We will also likely go into Nice one day to walk the promenade and visit a private beach there. Any advice on which one? Since we have two teens it would be great to find a beach that offered a floating dock, trampoline or some other kid friendly activity. In my online search Castel beach comes up often as the top choice, but it sounds like that may be mainly because of its ritzy who's who clientele. We're fine with paying for one day at a private beach, but don't really need the most fashionable option.

And yes, I realize there will be topless patrons at all of the beaches public or private. I would just like to find a good option where a family will fit in with me wearing a top - but not high-heeled beach stilettos:)

Thank you!!
