There is always something to enjoy in Monaco. A great way to spend a warm summer’s afternoon is to take a stroll along the wonderful local beaches or to some of the local landmarks, such as stunning Cap d’Ail, just a short distance from the Fontvieille district to the south of the principality. A bit further south and you reach Mala Beach with its beautiful golden sands and clear waters, and Anjuna, the swinging private beach restaurant located in the bay of Èze. Èze itself is a beautiful medieval town with narrow cobbled streets, brightly coloured by the stunning purple bougainvillea that flow down the sides of its quaint old buildings. At five hundred metres above sea level Èze offers astonishing views of the surrounding countryside and out over the shimmering waters of the Mediterranean, and there are few better places to eat than the famous Chateau de la Chévre d’Or restaurant.
The principality has many amazing leisure facilities, including the celebrated Monte Carlo Beach Club on Avenue Princess Grace, offering opportunities to indulge in many different water-based activities such as Parasailing, Jet skiing, and Flyboarding. It also has its own private beach.
Just a few yards further along the Avenue, off the Promenade de Larvotto, you will find the celebrated Miami Plage with its great gym, renowned beach volleyball facilities, and its wide beach.
At nine hundred metres above sea level the Monte Carlo Golf Club must surely be one of the world’s most inspiring venues for a round of golf. It offers astonishing views of the principality and the wide blue Mediterranean beyond, and is only a short drive away from La Turbie among the rolling green hills close to Mont Agel.
Overlooking Avenue Princess Grace and the Monte Carlo Beach are the twenty-three tennis courts at the famous Monte Carlo Country Club, venue for the yearly ATP Rolex Masters Tennis Tournament. The complex also has excellent facilities for squash, snooker, swimming, and fitness training; as well as a relaxation and wellness area, pro-shop, and restaurants.
