Our opinion on the Pissarelles Beach

Adresse of the Pissarelles Beach : 109 Avenue du Trois Septembre 06320 Cap-d'Ail

Pissarelles beach in Cap d'Ail is the most famous naturist beach in the Alpes-Maritimes. The surroundings are exceptional in the bay of St. Laurent below Barre Pissarelles (high cliffs).

On the other hand, the beach is not the most comfortable. There are big rocks there with small stone benches (very narrow). On the left, some people are stretching out on the edges of the fence of the house next door or on access stairs. Note that there is a source on the right hand side of the house.

Access is impossible to reach without our instructions. Go to Eze-seaside and through the different tunnels from Nice. You must enter in Cap d'Ail (information panel) and then, Pissarelles subdivision is in front of the car centre, (only a few parking spaces along the road – private domain, pedestrian access only). You have to enter in it then follow the paved road to the end (steep descent). At the end of the road, there is a small path along the cliff with stairs providing access to the beach.
