Especially since the beach is divided into two sections, one public and one private. You can choose the style that suits you best in this palm-filled bay. No matter where you prefer to soak up the sun, you will be sheltered from the wind since the cove will protect you from the sea breeze.

5. Calandre Beach – Ventimiglia

Cross the border and head to Ventimiglia, ideal for steering clear of those pesky pebbles. The small sandy beach is great for families.

On site, you will find a bar to relax with a delicious cocktail, virgin or otherwise, and there are also fresh water showers to rinse off the salt water after your dip. Far from the busy towns along the coast, it’s an ideal beach for ‘farniente’.
