Our opinion on the Carriere Coves

Adresse of the Carriere Coves : Sentier du littoral 06230 Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat

South of Fosses Beach, along the old quarry of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, there are some small coves. The first one is right after the private property and has two swimming areas. The first one is a small pebble beach and fairly well shaded concrete spaces in the summer. Behind it, there is a second concrete beach with a ladder to get into the water. These beaches are small and can accommodate only a few people. The first person to arrive get to privatize it! South (and at the Grand Hotel du Cap), some areas are set along the trail to sunbathe but swimming is mostly for athletes (the ascent is difficult).

To access these coves, go to Avenue Claude Vignon then take the path of Carrière. At the end of this road, there is only a pedestrian access. You have to cross the small housing estate and reach the quarry. The first beaches are on the left.

At the old quarry of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat (abandoned nowadays, was used in the previous century for the construction of the port of Monaco), there are a few spaces to sunbathe. The first small beach is just before the ruins of an old harbour facing the bay of Fosses.

By continuing on the path towards the Grand Hotel du Cap Ferrat (point of Causinière), there are some developed concrete spaces. The coast is very rocky and access to the sea is difficult. Only to sunbathe.
