One of the most delightful ways to experience the beauty of the French Riviera coastline is to spend a few hours strolling the coastal paths of Cap Ferrat. There are 14 kilometres of pathways winding around and through the peninsula and the scenery is ever-changing. As you can see from the map below you have a choice of three routes.
The shortest and easiest path is the 35-minute walk to Beaulieu-sur-Mer along the promenade Maurice Rouvier in the upper right. As there are no steps and the path is flat this is a good route for the elderly or for those with toddlers in strollers.
Next up in difficulty is the promenade de Saint-Hospice which starts around the port, takes you past Paloma beach and circles back to the port in about 1 1/2 hours. This walk is relatively flat.
The longest walk is the tour du cap also leaving from the port which takes you all around Cap Ferrat. Passing the Grand Hotel, you walk around the lighthouse and past several smaller beaches before finishing near Passable beach and then returning to the village. There are stairs and hilly portions of this walk, making it a nice workout. It takes about two hours.
