About St. Jean Cap Ferrat
St. Jean Cap Ferrat is surely one of the most beautiful places on the Mediterranean coast and has long been attracting Europe’s glitterati. Scented pine and palm trees sprinkled with spectacular villas, Cap Ferrat is a small peninsular almost surrounded by turquoise seas and hidden rocky coves.
There are three main beaches: Passable Plage, Croix des Pins and Paloma Plage, with the later being rated as one of the 10 best beaches of the Côte D’Azur.
The charming little town of St. Jean Cap Ferrat with its atmospheric narrow streets and enticing street cafés has no shortage of designer boutiques to ensure its visitors look fabulous. The former fishing port is now home to rows of dazzling yachts and makes a wonderful spot for an early evening promenade. And if you are feeling very energetic there is a glorious 14km coastal walk around the peninsular, a lovely way to take in the dramatic views.
Situated between Nice and Monaco it is very well positioned for easy access and for little trips to the other hot spots of the Côte d’Azur.
