La Note Bleue
Legendary jazz venue La Note Bleue is located on Monaco's only public beach, the Plage du Larvotto. This sophisticated venue attracts music lovers from all around the world thanks to their live jazz music festival on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings in the summer. They serve delicious signature cocktails and Asian fusion cuisine.
Nikki Beach Monte Carlo
The wonderful Nikki Beach Monte-Carlo opens every spring on the rooftop terrace of the luxury Fairmont Monte-Carlo Hotel. Known all around the world as the place where the best beach parties take place, the Nikki Beach brand, which celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2019, has expanded to Monaco with this pop-up bar and restaurant. Expect fresh food, scrumptious cocktails, a beautiful crowd and, of course, Nikki Beach's signature entertainment.
Monte-Carlo Beach Club
Located in the ultra-luxurious Monte-Carlo Beach Hotel, where Charlotte Casiraghi and Dimitri Rassam celebrated their wedding reception earlier this month, this beach club has all the five-star facilities you can think of. There is not only a good-sized stretch of private sandy beach here but also a heated seawater pool, chic cabanas, three restaurants, a kid's club and lots of watersports to choose from, including jet skiing, flyboarding, water skiing and aquagym.
Over in Eze, a few kilometres south of Monaco, is where the Papaya Beach Club is located. Boasting its own private beach, this is the place to go when in search of some peace and quiet. Enjoy the views over the clear turquoise waters and the gentle waves lapping onto the pebbled beach while you sip on a cocktail. Ideal for a romantic dinner or a sundowner.
La Reserve de la Mala
A bit closer to Monaco, on Cap d'Ail, La Reserve de la Mala also has a private beach which they say is "probably the most beautiful in the Cote d'Azur". They're entirely dedicated to helping you enjoy the 'dolce farniente' so you can spend a whole day here sunbathing, swimming in the crystalline Mediterranean waters, getting pampered with a massage and, of course, sipping on cocktails and eating at their fine restaurant.
