Can anyone visit Paloma Beach?
Just because Paloma Beach is a favourite destination for the aristocracy doesn’t mean that its not free to all! Admittedly, certain porches of the shore are restricted to private paying guests, with a reserved sunbed and parasol costing €23 per person. However, you’ll also have access to the Paloma Beach diners, which serve reasonably priced food and drinks.
The remaining 80% of the gorgeous coastline is open to all the public. And believe us, you don’t miss out on any of the bright blue ocean or radiant sunshine! Not to mention there’s plenty of local cafés and restaurants for you frequent and pick up a snack during the day.

The great thing about the Cote d’Azur is how easily accessible all its cities are from one another. So getting to Paloma Beach is a walk in the park! From Nice, you can take bus no. 15 from stop Promenade des Arts straight to Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat. And the best part? The bus is only EUR 2! And while the bus may take an hour, the coastal route it takes makes it all worth it.
Taking the train is also a quick and easy option if you want to get to Paloma Beach France. However, Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat does not have its own train station so you’ll have to go to the one either at Villefranche-sur-Mer or Beaulieu-sur-Mer. And then from either of those two stations you’ll travel the remaining 10 minutes via the no. 15 bus. So while this option will about 35 minutes off your journey, it is a little more expensive. Plus, you’ll also miss out on that beautiful coastal view!
Here in Nice, we have three stations: Nice-Ville, Nice Riquier or Nice Saint Augustine. So long as you get on the train going in the right direction, you can hop on at any of these stations.
