Great coastline walk

Terrifically beautiful beach front walk. Goes for several miles...Lovely way to spend a sunny day. You can end up at restaurant in St. Jean which is charming.

Beautiful walks with breath taking views you can also walk down to little coves, make sure you wear proper footwear as it's very rocky and uneven, and take a drink as there is nothing close by. I would highly recommend.

Took the train from Nice to Beaulieu and then walked all the way to the marina and around the island. Absolutely beautiful and relatively easy to do - although if you have a stroller then the walk around the island is at times cumbersome as the way is a bit rough and there are a number of narrow passages and...

probably the best hike on the riviera - its long of course (almost 4 K) but its really a must to do it on a sunny day - poetry all around

If you are staying locally do yourself a favour and walk this walk. We got the train from Nice to Beaulieu sur Mer and followed the coastal path for its full length to Villefranche and got the train back from there. It's a longish wallk that'll take all day, level for most part but plenty of steps in places. Stop... More

Would definitely recommend a walk to Cap Ferrat. I took a bus 81/83 from Eze Village to Beaulieu Sur-Mer and then walked to Cap Ferrat following the walkway along the beach. It's a very scenic walk. One can then take a bus to Nice from Mairie bus stop in return.

There's the short hike or the long hike each around different parts of the Cap, the shorter one better suited to a post lunch walk! The longer walk earn a bigger lunch! Either way the pats are well formed for the most part, views are gorgeous and unspoiled, the shorter walk isn't too hilly or strenuous either. One of the... More

Well worthwhile taking this beautiful scenic walk around the cap. The beautiful villa's and the lighthouse and the sea and rugged coast make for a very pleasant walk.

The good thing about this walk is that you can do some or all of it depending on your ability or wishes. We did the whole thing, getting the train from Nice Riquir to Beaulieu Sur Mer (7 mins) then walked from the station to the start of the walk then all the way around the coastal path around the...
