Top French Riviera Beach Clubs and Restaurants
A key part of the French Riviera charter experience is heading to shore in your tender, and having an amazing lunch at a gourmet beach restaurant, overlooking the beautiful Côte d'Azur. Share a cold glass of rosé as you sample some freshly grilled seafood with your feet in the sand, and relax into Riviera life. Renting a boat for the day along this beautiful stretch of coast is the ultimate way to experience destinations such as Cannes or St Tropez.
After countless charters, we know where our guests love to go, what they have enjoyed and what each place can offer. Here are some beach restaurants that are all special in their own way; offering different cuisine, location and experiences. We can make any reservations for you, depending on where you'd like to go!
Club 55 - St Tropez
Club 55 originated, appropriately, in 1955 when Brigitte Bardot was filming And God Created Women on Pampelonne Beach and the director asked a fisherman's hangout if they could cook for the cast. It's been almost synonymous with the St Tropez beach scene since then and never disappoints. This desirable restaurant is where celebrities are desperate to visit when they are in St Tropez, don't be surprised if you're rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous in this exclusive beach club. Bypass the busy roads and get to St Tropez via your own yacht for an incredible day!
This trendy hang out boasts a chic yet relaxed vibe; the atmosphere is often buzzing as they often have jazz bands performing live to enhance the spirit. Hang out at Pampleonne Beach and explore the designer boutiques and incredible ice cream shops, to make the most of your St Tropez day out.
Paloma Beach - Cap Ferrat
Paloma is nestled into a quiet, tree-lined cove on Cap Ferrat, best reachable by tender. Your table will have amazing views east toward Beaulieu, Eze-sur-Mer, Cap d'Ail and the hills above Monaco. In the bay will be some of the most amazing yachts in the world - on any given day you're likely to see at least 2-3 of the world's 100 largest. The food is light, fresh and features excellent fish dishes that can be shared by two. Starters include local favourites such as Fleur de Courgette, fried calamari and grilled red peppers.
Paloma lets you feel like you belong in this amazing centre of the world's most affluent people. Many past guests have mentioned how romantic this setting can be, with the white tablecloths and candles overlooking an idyllic setting. The best way to reach Paloma is to hire a yacht for the day from Monaco.
