Cap Ferrat beach, South France

What originally drew visitors to the headland of coast was the marvellous views and the beautiful sandy beach. South France has many fine beaches, but the beaches around Cap Ferrat are reportedly amongst the best in the Cote d'Azur. Just below the classy village of Saint-jean you will find a tree lined stretch of sand with a shallow bay. The water is crystal clear and you can get a wonderful view of the palatial mansions by swimming out into the bay. The Cap Ferrat beach of Paloma Plage is popular with divers (on account of the clear water). The public stretch of Cap Ferrat beach at Paloma Plage can be found by heading towards Paloma point and walking down the short footpath to the beach.
