“Welcome to Paradise”, “My favourite beach since 1948″….. The quotes on the Paloma Beach website say it all!

Paloma Beach (Plage Paloma) is a beautiful beach located on the Cap Ferrat peninsula between Villefranche-sur-Mer and Beaulieu-sur-Mer, just east of Nice in the south of France. It is a popular beach club among the residents of this prestigious peninsula, which is home to some of the world’s most expensive properties and also among the residents of nearby Monaco and the international jet-set who anchor their yachts on the French Riviera every summer. Although the beach is pebbly, the water is crystal clear and the views of Beaulieu and the surrounding mountains are breathtakingly beautiful.

Paloma Beach is a beach club located in Cap Ferrat that prefers a more traditional approach to Riviera style, as opposed to the flashy displays of wealth found in some of the beach clubs in St Tropez. Although many of the club’s guests are quite wealthy (to say the least), the establishment maintains a discreet and modest French ambiance, being a family-owned beach club. The restaurant at Paloma Beach offers classic dishes of southern France, including freshly grilled fish, delectable salads, and a wine list boasting many excellent Côte de Provence Rosé wines. The staff at this elegant restaurant are exceptionally friendly and welcoming, promising a great experience for all visitors.
