Sun is shining over lined up yatchs. Women are sporting their Deauvilles, Birkins and even their basket bags… Men in khaki pants and hats… You get the picture. It is summer, it is Monaco, what to do?
The obvious option is getting yourself a boat, or maybe get invited to one, but we are here turning to the option of exploring Monte-Carlo wonderfully well. And my first choice would be, for sure, spending a day at the Monte-Carlo Beach Club.
Part of the Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer, which owns the Casino de Monte-Carlo and others together with hotels like Hôtel de Paris and Hotel Hermitáge, the Monte-Carlo Beach Club is open for access for all guests of hotels of their group or under reservation at their restaurants or cabanas.
We are talking about a day club complete with pool, loungers, cabanas, service, restaurants, music and very nice atmosphere. This is not you party beach club at all. At the Monte-Carlo Beach Club you will find families, a young crowd, a group of friends, everybody. It is quite elite, but not in a excessive or arrogante way.
Bottom line: one of favorite thing to do in Monte-Carlo, for sure.
The main pool is an iconic olympic pool, with diving boards and surrounded with crowded pool loungers. It has a very vintage and sophisticated feel, or maybe I watched too many Old Hollywood movies.
Access to the sea and water sports.
At the Beach Club of course you also get the access to the sea, not really a beach as in the large sand strip kind of beach but a very Côte D’Azur beach: rocky and beautiful. The water tends to be on the cold side, but it is emerald green and very clear, worth the jump in.
Some sports available to try are FlyBoard, Jet Ski, Fly Fishing and Parasailing.
Flavor Market at the Le Deck
One of the restaurants at Monte-Carlo Beach Club is the Le Deck at a a pool-view terrace. At Sundays on the warm months (normally from mid-April to mid-October, but you might want to check that first), Le Deck hosts their Flavor Market, a wonderful brunch with a lot of fresh and healthy options (all organic), very riviera, lined up in cute tends inside the restaurant for a chic buffet.
Very summer in Monaco, totally recommend schedule a Sunday in Monte-Carlo just for that.
On the rest of the week, Le Deck serves a la carte, being their specially everything barbecue.
If you decided to take a cabana during your stay, you can order food from Les Cabanas, which will serve more casual dishes like pizzas and salads.
And last, next to the Beach Club you have the Monte Carlo Beach hotel, where you can access Elsa, a much more chic Michelin starred restaurant.
Monaco is super dressy, in a way that the gym at my hotel sold Fendi activewear. This might sound too much for some, I get it. But as I like to say: “When in Rome, wear gladiators.” So yes, I like to get in the dance and dress up a little more in this town. My suggestions for today:
A fun one! ♥ I am big fan of Oran sandals by Hermés, so I included this bright one!
Classic & Chic
LOVING this one! A classic and chic choice. Love the kaftan, zoom in for the details in the link bellow.
And a more sportsy look, for those who will adventure themselves on the water in style! The men shirt gives an extra stylish and sexy touch.
And since you all like to know what I wore, links bellow!
