Menton is a beautiful town on the Italian border only 4 miles from Monaco, and boasts two very good marinas with some of the lowest pricing on the entire Riviera. This information is for the Port Municipal de Menton; for the bigger Port de Menton Garavan, please click here.
The Municipal Port (also called Le Vieux Port), is the public port of Menton, offering 596 berths, of which 100 are reserved for visitors. The port accommodates vessels up to 30m, with a maximum draft of 6m.
This marina has an exquisite setting, with the views dominated by the stunning Basilique Saint Michel in the old town, and the Bastion at the entry to the port—now home to the Jean Cocteau museum. You’ll find restaurants lining the marina, many of which specialise in the local seafood caught by the fishermen of Menton. There’s a friendly and welcoming feel to this marina, and the value for money is hard to beat in this region.
Local attractions are plentiful, including the Sablette Beach and the famous exotic gardens and Belle Epoque architecture, while Menton’s location by the Italian border makes Menton a superb jumping off point to either the French or the Italian Rivieras. The port is within easy reach of the train station.
Facilities and services include fresh water, Electricity, Free WIFI, Toilets & Showers, fuel, careening area, waste collection, marine services, shops and restaurants. There is also a dry dock with a 100 ton travelift, a 2 ton crane and various technical services.
