We were in Italy for a couple of days and a local recommended this beach to us because we were returning to France and it’s very close to the border. In case you wonder where the entrance is, it’s opposite the car park and next...More

A little hard to get to! At the farthest end of what you would consider Ventimiglia, just west of the new marina. There is a tortuous path more or less along the waterfront, but the most direct route is down the hill from the museum...More

Lovely little beach and a nice path to get down to it! A must see in Ventimiglia! Also to our surprise there was a little bar where you can buy drinks from.

If you'd like to avoid the rocks of the French and Italian blue coast, this is the beach to go to. You have to take a hike (entrance point is next to the archaeological museum), but it's so worth it to be on a beach...More

This beach is a little awkward to get to, but well worth the trouble. It is fun for all ages. We did not dislike anything about Le Calandre
