top5-3-c5One of the most beautiful beaches on the Côte d’Azur, the Plage de la Mala stretches out along the foot of the cliffs of Cap d’Ail. Across the clear and limpid sea there’s a fantastic view of Beaulieu and Cap Ferrat. The excellent beach restaurant and bar serves cocktails and seafood throughout the day, and at nightfall the romance continues with candles and torches reflected in
the sea. Magic.
