Monaco's most important beach, Plage du Larvotto between the Grimaldi Forum and the Méridien Hotel, was inaugurated in early July, with a dedication by Prince Albert II. After extensive construction work, it is now possible to enjoy a swim, a leisurely meal and even some shopping with the restaurants and boutiques once again open for guests. This season, a shuttle bus brings visitors from the adjacent parking garages to the desired stretch of beach.

Not only Larvotto Beach is brand new but also the chic beach promenade has reopened just in time for the summer. The area includes boutiques and restaurants with a total area of ​​4,800 square meters, an extended sand beach and a handiplage for people with disabilities. Combine this with various leisure activities such as a diving school and Plage du Larvotto becomes a summer highlight for locals and visitors.

A free shuttle service is now available so that you can take a bathing and shopping trip in a comfortable and ecological way and save yourself a long search for a parking space. The electrically operated minibus connects the Rond-point du portier in a continuous loop with the Rond-point at the Monte Carlo Bay Hotel and brings bathers directly from the parking garages near the beach (Parking du Portier, Parking du Grimaldi Forum, Parking Testimonio) to Larvotto.

The Navette runs every 15 minutes from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Stops are signposted at the respective parking lots.

The renovation work on Larvotto Beach will continue after the summer season. Star architect Renzo Piano, who is responsible for the new look to match the neighboring land expansion in the sea (“Anse du Protier” district), promises that the work will be completed in early 2022.
