Our opinion on the Grasseuil Beach

Adresse of the Grasseuil Beach : Av de Grasseuil 06230 Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat

Grasseuil Beach is located at the entrance of Cape Ferrat. It is small and charming and made up of stones. To the left we find a few village houses that bring a certain charm to this area. To the right, the beach ends with a little private harbor (belonging to a residence and two villas). The stone beach area is found on the right side with a few shady areas. To the left we don't find a beach but a few docks where we can lay out to tan or swim. Note that we cannot join Grasseuil Beach in Cape Ferrat, due to private properties,which is found in the next bay.

To get here from downtown Villefranche, take the Basse Corniches until the entrance of Cape Ferrat. At the stoplight, take a right then immediately right again onto avenue Louis Bordes. Then take a right onto avenue de Grasseuil. Access to the beach can be found in the bend (see photos). We find a few parking places along the road.
