Our opinion on the Gavinette Beach

Adresse of the Gavinette Beach : Sentier du littoral 06230 Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat

Between the points of Gavinette and Cuisse, there is a concrete platform to lie down and sunbathe. Access to the sea is tricky (no ladder, great heights, see pictures) but locals know the place. Younger people can reach the sea through the adjacent rocks. Access from the coastal path is easy, there are stairs.

The easiest way to get to this beach is to take the coastal path, which starts south of Passable Beach. It takes 20 minutes on foot.
