Roquebrune Cap-Martin Destination Guide

This medieval village is perched on top of a hill. There is a footpath in the shade of the pines facing the Mediterranean, overlooking secret beaches and bordering a shore more than 7 km long. Roquebrune Cap-Martin subsequently attracts an international clientele in search of scenic beauty and well-being, just a few minutes from Monaco.

There are plenty of shops, restaurants with terraces, well-equipped beaches and sports facilities for visitors to make use of. Nature lovers may prefer to hike to the top of the hills in order to look out over the stunning vista below.

Activities

Monaco is just a few minutes’ drive away and is world famous for its glamorous Grand Casino, formula one Grand Prix, nightclubs, fine dining restaurants and boutique shopping. Visitors can explore the various monuments, museums, public gardens, Prince’s Palace, panoramic viewpoints, oceanographic museum and aquarium, art galleries, churches and harbour crammed with monstrously large luxury super-yachts.

If you don’t mind a slight drive, you can visit Cannes, which is located only 61.3 km away. Cannes is perhaps one of the most popular destinations on The Riviera, with its combination of luxury, beauty and glamour. The Croisette famously offers luxury shopping, exclusive bars and restaurants and undeniably exquisite sandy beaches.

Nice, in comparison, is 27.1 km away via the A8 motorway. The famous Promenade Des Anglais (Walkway of the English) is a wonderful place to walk, cycle or run and see the beautiful city on one side and the calm, picturesque ocean on the other. Do as the locals do and sit at a café and people watch. Alternatively, sit in the perfectly placed seats and benches and gaze out over the endless Mediterranean ocean.

The Old Town is a must-see. There are numerous historical sites, cafés, quaint restaurants and the famous flower market selling not only a bright array of blooms but also fruit, vegetables, spices and other Provençal delicacies.
