Mala beach in Cap d’Ail is no doubt the most beautiful beach of this part of the Côte d’Azur. Access is rather difficult. It can either be accessed from the coastline path (access is less tiring through Gramaglia creek) or using the stairs next to Eden beach (around 100 stairs, a bit difficult). It is therefore not a child friendly beach! But once you arrive on the beach, you are in a unique location with a big natural cliff and turquoise waters.
This beach is divided into two areas. The first one (next to the stairs) is covered in fine sand. There are also two private beaches with restaurants (in summer the public beach is located next to sheds, it is small but monitored and has a anti-jellyfish net). The part on the right hand side is covered in pebbles and is entirely public.
Finding a parking space is really hard if you are driving there (it is best to ride there and park next to the stairs). On Mala alley, it is impossible to find a space (be careful, it is an access for emergency services only). There are a few spaces on Weck Avenue.
Through Douaniers path, you can reach the tip of the Douaniers and its small beaches in around 50 minutes and Cap d’Ail port in 1h30.
