Lovely sandy / rocky beach, and several nice restaurants along the small harbor.

Boat trips to Monaco, Cannes, etc., based on the port.

Fantastic train ride along the flowering and beautiful coast.It takes around 45-minutes to go to the resort Ventimiglia who is in Italy. You should absolutely visit the famous market in Ventimiglia, which always takes place on Fridays.

Huge selection of jeans, leather bags, food market with cheeses, sausages, ham and more. An experience to remember.
