Fodor's Expert Review Promenade Maurice-Rouvier

Beaulieu-sur-Mer Promenade/Boardwalk

Today Beaulieu is usually spoken of in the past tense and has taken on a rather stuffy character, though its small beach attracts families with children, but on the Promenade Maurice-Rouvier, a paved pedestrian path that begins not far from the Villa Kerylos, you can stroll the waterfront, past grand villas and their tropical gardens, all the way to St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat. The 30-minute walk winds seaside along the Baie des Fourmis (Bay of Ants), whose name alludes to the black rocks "crawling" up from the sea. The name doesn't quite fit, but the walk will give you great views of the sparkling Mediterranean and surrounding mountains.
