Our opinion on the Rauba Capeu Beach

Adresse of the Rauba Capeu Beach : Quai Lunel 06300 Nice

Rauba Capeu Beach is not mentioned in the touristic brochures about Nice. However, swimmers come here in the summer. A ladder allows access to the sea. Careful, when the sea is agitated this site can be very dangerous and there is no lifeguard present. There is no real beach here; only large rocks. Some of the habitants of Nice like to come here to fish octopus with a snorkel and mask.

Coming from Old Nice, after the monument Rauba-Capeu, at the bottom of the chateau hill, the quai Rauba Capeu is found just before the parking lot for the harbor and is located on the right.

We are at the beginning of quai Rauba Capeau. The most crowded zone is near the dock. Continuing on the dam toward the harbor is an area frequented by nudists. Mostly men.

To the left of this photo are big concrete blocks used to lay out on. To the right, you can also lay out your towel on the rocks. After the blocks it is difficult to access the sea.

Continuing on the dam (it's smarter to go through the parking lot as there is an entrance here) we arrive in a zone with large rocks. This zone is less frequented, but access is dangerous. We find nudists here. Mostly men.
