Plage du Casino on Baie du Soleil, one of the few/only dog-permitted beaches in the town. The town’s main park where the Lemon Festival’s main display is held – Jardins Biovès – runs inland from the front of the casino.
Relatively undeveloped, with a slow pace and a restrained ambience, Menton offering a couple of substantial beaches, Les Sablettes to the east beyond the curve of this bay, and the one above which is actually a long strip of separately-named beaches that are basically identical and all joined anyway, so we have ignored the names apart from this one, Plage du Casino (obviously beside the town’s casino) and probably the most convenient one (unless you have a dog to walk) Plage du Fossan in the distant corner (photo below).
Menton’s waters are calm and clean in the summer season and most beaches are carpeted with scattered pebbles fading out to rough brown sand towards and into the water, so entering the warm seas is easy and no foot-protection needed.
Menton’s town and beaches are definitely worth a visit, if not a full-on holiday if you’re looking for great weather and a quiet time.
