Among the most beautiful regions of the Cote d’Azur, Cap Ferrat is a peninsula just off of Villefranche-sur-Mer. A former fishing village, it has become one of the most sought-after pieces of real-estate in the world.
Hiking around St. Jean Cap Ferrat.
As everywhere on the coast, you will find private and public beaches. The beaches on the peninsula of Cap Ferrat can be found in small coves along the coastal walking path.
There are many beaches all around the peninsula, accessible by walking along the trail that goes all the way around the peninsula. The walking trail is called the Chemin des Douaniers. To hike the whole peninsula takes about 1.5 hours, with lots of little beaches and parks to enjoy along the way. We recommend starting at Port de Saint-Jean so you can pick up some food for a picnic before heading off on the hike. Stop at any beach that piques your fancy for a sea-side picnic with spectacular views of the sea.
