Our opinion on the Crau de Nao Beach

Adresse of the Crau de Nao Beach : Sentier du littoral 06230 Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat

Between the points of Cuisse and Crau Nao on the peninsula of Saint Jean Cap Ferrat, there is a pebble cove with a small platform on the rocks. The site is totally untamed opposite the bay of Villefranche and the cap of Nice. However, the access by the coastal path is very dangerous (unmaintained cliff trail). It is best to get there by boat or kayak.

By the coastal footpath, you can go from Passage Beach. You have to head south towards the lighthouse. It takes 35 minutes on foot. Before arriving, you go past a shaded area with a bench on the side.

Located north of the point of Crau Nao, this gravel cove offers a totally untamed environment. You are on completely secret but visible beaches from the coastal path.

Confidential cove in St Jean Cap Ferrat

This cove is quite small but as its access is difficult, not over crowded. On the sides, with some rocks on platforms. You can see in the picture stairs at the bottom but access is by a dangerous path (visible in the photo, dirt road along the cliffs).

Coastal path - St Jean Cap Ferrat

This cove is accessible from the coastal path by the small road on the cliffside. Too dangerous in our opinion! You can come by boat or kayak.
