Plage de la Darse, Villefranche-sur-Mer
Plage de la Darse

The glittering bay of Villefranche-sur-Mer is one of the world's most majestic sights and there's no better way to appreciate it than from one of the town's beaches. Unlike most other Riviera coastal towns, there are no private beaches in Villefranche-sur-Mer. The entire beachfront is free and open to the public. Nevertheless, as beautiful as the water appears, there have been consistent problems with cleanliness, particularly on the Plage des Marinieres. There are just too many boats in that stunning bay. It would be advisable to keep your head above water as much as possible. For up-to-date information see baignades.sante.gouv.fr/

At the far end of the beach (keep walking past the parking) is the charmingly-named Plage de l'Ange Gardien (Gardian Angel beach) that provides a somewhat more tranquil experience than the Plage des Marinières. A portion of this cove is authorized for pet owners accompanied by their dogs.

Plage de la Darse

The other beach in Villefranche is a much different experience. Plage de la Darse is at the western end of the bay next to the Port Royal de la Darce. Although it's a snap for boat owners docked at the Port to visit, other visitors are best advised to go by foot or bike from central Villefranche as there's no parking whatsoever. This tranquil beach has a beautiful setting but is not heavily frequented mainly because it's composed of large and sometimes pointed rocks. Rubber footwear is essential. There's a beach shower but no other facilities, snackbars or lifeguards. The water quality here is the most consistently clean of all Villefranche beaches.
