“Part of the Sentier Littoral”

Promenade Le Corbusier
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 25 April 2017

The hike of Cap Martin is part of the Sentier du Littoral, the footpath along the French south coast. The walk around the cape is easy, sometimes a few steps up and down but nothing strenuous. Along the path you have some great views of the Mediterranean. And if you want to enjoy some quiet time, there are some secluded benches near the sea. The path runs along the trainstation Roquebrune-Cap-Martin where I ended my walk and took the train back to Menton. I liked the hike, but I have done other parts of the Sentier Littoral and the nearby Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat hike is still my favourite.

I started from Carnoles the local town where it seems all the people who work in Monaco live. The day was fine but windy so the beach here was wild with surfers coming out of the Mts to experience these unusually large waves. The colour of the rocks were like a painted on white with darker edges outlined near the sea line. The track was busy with walkers, some with dogs and runners but was wide enough to pass in most places. The most interesting section was the concrete sunbathing platforms for the guests of the beautiful old palatial apartments. I had to bend down to go under the platform here. Runners must have more difficulty if they are taller than me? Around the corner the path becomes more varied with steps up and down and narrows in places, then comes to the long walkway hugging the railway embankment. The view on this side is to Monaco with its high density tall buildings whereas the view on the other side was of old Menton with different pastel colours on historical buildings and in the middle were seats to enjoy the sea and the changing clouds in the sky.

Arrived by train at the station in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin from Nice ville railway station and set off East on the path bordering the train line leading to the cliff top path towards Menton. The path, although undulating, was quite easy, with lovely, panoramic views in both directions, both back to Monte Carlo and down to the Italian coast. Stopped for coffee on the walk back to Menton at a well placed restaurant overlooking the bay.
Readers should be aware that, for those who do not like heights, there are two short sections of the walk provided by walkways, which are secured to the railway embankment retaining wall, approx. 50 feet above the sea and rocks below. Despite this caveat, the walk was well the worth the effort and is recommended.

We got the train from Cannes to Menton which takes just over an hour. Menton is a lovely place and we had coffee in the old town before setting off to Monte Carlo. The first part takes you along the promenade and eventually on to good footpath around the headland.

As you come round the headland you get great views of Monte Carlo. The path is very good just a few ups and downs with steps. One section has been re routed at the moment due to damage to a walkway.

It's great views al the way and takes just over 2 hours a must for walkers.

Walked out from Menton to Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, and then up the steep steep hill to the fort and Le Corbusier's grave at about 1pm. Even then there were runners out in the 30 degree heat. By 3pm I was brave enough to strip to shorts and run back - it's all fairly level and an easy surface to run on, some steps in places, and to finish it off, take a swim and shower on one of the free beaches before you get too far into Menton.
