The beautiful Cap d’Ail beach
Cap d’Ail, our hidden gem – the one with the wow factor. Over the years, this is the one that people rave about. The keywords are hidden cove, steep cliffs all around, and cliff jumping.
How to get to Mala beach?

Mala Beach – Cap d’Ail
La Mala Beach is often described as the most beautiful beach on the French Riviera.
Arriving at Mala beach, you will overlook the bay that looks like a creek with its small beach huts. It is indeed a very beautiful beach with really beautiful watercolor. A real mix of blue, turquoise and darker colors.
If you would like to try cliff-jumping, you should go on the left-hand side of the beach where you can jump from the concrete pillars.
You can also walk to Monaco from the left-hand side of the beach.
Eating on Mala beach
Once there, there is a public part where everyone can settle. There are also two restaurants-private beaches that make you want to settle down with a cocktail, a fish dish and the sea for unique views: the Eden Plage Mala and La Mala Reserve. The atmosphere is really calmer than elsewhere in the department.
Otherwise, we suggest you take a picknick and water, as you will have to trek up the hill to get to the little supermarket at the roundabout.
