PALOMA BEACH, private beach, Saint Jean Cap Ferrat, French Riviera
About the beach
Paloma beach is one of the most beautiful coastal spots on the Côte d’Azur. Popular with the jet-set and celebrities, the crystal-clear waters and stunning views over Beaulieu, Cap d’Ail and the cliffs at Eze have been enjoyed by many since 1948. Nowadays, despite being surrounded by some of the most expensive villas in the world, the ambiance of the beach club is relaxed yet chic. The shingle shore is protected by the wind, making it a very enjoyable spot to relax on a lounger and take in the magnificent surrounding Rivera scenery. The restaurant is expensive, with a not hugely imaginative menu of fish dishes and other local staples, but the food is very nice and the service is attentive. By any means, it is a picture-perfect spot to dine, and cannot really be compared with any other beach restaurants in the South of France. The private beach is open from Easter until the end of September, from 9am to 7pm.
