La Mala beach, a hidden gem on the Côte d’Azur, instantly conjures up an image of paradise on earth. Nestled between steep cliffs and bathed by the crystal-clear waters of the Mediterranean, this cove is breathtakingly beautiful.

A beach to be deserved

La Mala beach can be reached either by sea, or by taking the customs path to Monaco, which passes through the Cap D’ail train station. The latter is around 900 meters from La Mala.
To get close to the beach by car, you’ll have to drive from Nice to Cap d’Ail and get off at the Eden residence. Park your car – an almost impossible task at the height of summer unless you arrive very early – and then take the path and stairs down to the beach, which has a negative gradient of around 60 metres.


Arriving at Plage Paloma, you’re immediately struck by the serenity that reigns here. The gentle murmur of the waves mingles with birdsong, creating a soothing melody that invites relaxation. The white umbrellas and deckchairs elegantly arranged on the golden sand evoke a chic, relaxed atmosphere, where time seems suspended.

The Mediterranean-style restaurant is open from Easter to the end of September for lunch and dinner. The facility can be fully privatized, with showers, changing rooms, towels, deckchairs, parasols, bar and restaurant.
