With the exception of a 4km stretch through Monaco, you can walk the entire 13km coastal strip between Roquebrune-Cap Martin and Cap d’Ail without passing a car. Starting west of Menton, the Sentier du Littoral follows Cap Martin’s rugged coastline past beaches and wooded shores, including beautiful Plage Buse, all the way to Monaco’s Plage Larvotto. Resuming at Plage Marquet near Monaco's western edge, the path skirts dramatic coastal bluffs all the way to hedonistic Plage Mala in Cap d’Ail.
The walk is easy going, but visitors should note that the stretch of coast between Monaco and Cap d’Ail is inaccessible in bad weather. The path is well signposted and you can easily walk small sections or make a day trip out of it, including beach stops and lunch in Monaco. The Roquebrune-Cap Martin and Cap d'Ail train stations both make ideal starting points, depending on which section you wish to tackle first. If you don’t fancy walking through Monaco, you can catch bus 6 from Larvotto to Fontvieille.
