Our opinion on the Rouvier Cove

Adresse of the Rouvier Cove : Promenade M. Rouvier 06230 Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat

Starting from Beaulieu sur Mer (Fourmis Beach), a path leads to the centre of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat by the seafront. Before arriving at the point of Rompa Talon (about 10 minutes on foot), there is a succession of small and shaded coves that are little known and little used (there is space even in August,). Mainly covered in gravel and Posidonia, it is better to wear shoes when swimming (rocky seabed). The place is very nice and away from the road (bordered by a pedestrian promenade).

Along the promenade, some pontoons of private ports (many on the Cap) are used as a beach to relax and sunbathe.

The simplest way is to park in Beaulieu (quite difficult in the summer) and follow the coastal path towards Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat (it runs along Fourmis Beach). You can also access it from the alley of Tilleuls in Cap-Ferrat (but no parking).

The most interesting coves are close to the point. They are accessible by stairs and in the shade. Not even crowded in August.
