Everybody knows that during the summer the French Riviera is invaded by tourists from all over the world. This means that in spite of the great beauty of the area, it can sometimes be frustrating if you can’t find a peaceful spot to enjoy your holidays in the way you wish. Don’t worry, we have the perfect place for you!
We’d like to introduce you to Coco Beach, to the east of Nice. This tiny beach, situated beyond the Port of Nice, is not exactly a beach. It’s a series of rocks perfect for sunbathing, with ladders to give access to the sea. So you could describe this spot as unusual, different… a unique and strikingly beautiful place. The view over the sea and the Bay of Angels really is quite breathtaking. This secret spot where Nice’s locals have been coming for generations is ideal for swimming with the fishes and also for diving. This is a lovely place to spend a little time, undisturbed, with friends or with someone special.
This spot, nicknamed “La Piscine” (The Pool), is a great favourite with Nice’s local residents, and it’s a place to come both in summer and in winter. Time stands still here, and the only sound to be heard is the waves dashing against the rocks. You’re far away from the crowds on the Promenade des Anglais. You could spend the rest of your life here! Coco Beach is special, with the crystal-clear waters stretching out to infinity, or so it seems. It’s a beautiful, romantic spot… perfect for a lovers’ stroll. Coco Beach is one of Nice’s less well-known beaches, and yet… it’s wonderful. But its real charm lies in the fact that it’s so tucked away. During your stay at our Alba hotel, we will be very happy to show you how to get there. It’s a secret that we’re simply dying to share with you!
