Properties in Larvotto MonacoIf you are not billeted at a beach front hotel, you can make your way to Plage du Larvotto (a prime area), the only public beach in Monte Carlo. Extremely crowded during peak seasons, the man-made gravel beach is popular with locals and tourists. There are also several top hotels, shops and restaurants here, offering solace from the blazing sun. At night, Larvotto’s clubs come to life.

On this glamorous stretch of sand lie topless women sunning themselves, draped in sparkling jewellery that rival the glimmer of the Mediterranean waters. But Larvotto is also a family-friendly resort. There are also numerous recreational facilities here: playgrounds, trampolines and a boardwalk for bikers, skateboarders and rollerbladers. Shower cabanas, restaurants, cafes and ice cream stands are conveniently located along the strip, and the beautiful Japanese Garden is nearby.
