Summary: 

The Port of Beaulieu is located between the old perched village of Eze and Cap Ferrat. It is medium sized harbour which has over  700 berths and can moor a few yachts up to 30 m long. Part of this private port, said the “old port” is public, and welcome boats up to 22 m long.

 

Beaulieu-sur-mer is a town which got its fame as a seaside resort towards the end of the 19th century. It became a part of France under Napoleon III, who called it “Belloloco”. It is due to its popularity amongst the upper classes of society and the aristocracy, that Beaulieu developed into a town of its own (until then it was a part of Nice). Its first mayor, Hippolyte Marioni, spent a considerable of his personal wealth, without counting, to turn what was once a tiny little village circuling a church, into an extremely popular seaside resort of the time. This all took place during what was to be later called the “Belle Epoque”.

Since then, Beaulieu-sur-Mer has kept its original charm. Nowadays, it is host to many luxury hotels and villas of various architectural styles, as well as many residents who commute daily to work in the neighbouring towns of Nice and Monaco. Therefore, the town keeps its cosy and peaceful aspect, even during the summer, whilst other coastal towns tend to be more crowded by holiday makers.

 

The Port of Beaulieu is located half-way between Cap Roux and Cap Ferrat. It is very popular for its charm and beauty. Wherever you are in the port, you can always see the impressive limestone cliff of Cap Roux, the local natural landmark, in a coastal background which has remained relatively preserved over the years and still has many green areas.

 

The marina’s administration is renowned for having earned multiple awards and certifications for its respect of the environment and good management (ISO 9001 and 14001). In the Port of Beaulieu, for many years already, it is possible to recycle your garbage (there is a selective sorting point right in front of the port’s office). Black and grey water pumping is available on appointment. The marina is constantly kept clean and under security surveillance. A new port office opened its doors in 2011. In recent years, the port’s layout was rethought and rearranged to be better suited to modern boats and yachts (usually much beamier than when the port was built). Since this is a highly demanded place to keep one’s boat, these changes in the berth’s sizes has not put an end to the waiting lists to rent there.

 

The two basins on each side of the port’s central jetty bring the total of berth to 723. The smallest berths are located in the “old port” and in the angle formed by Quay Nord and Quay du Levant. All the yachts are moored along the Digue du Levant, where the port has approximately 30 berths for these sizes (24 m and longer) and where the water depth varies from 5 m to 7 m. However, the draft of boats going in and out of the harbour cannot exceed 3.8 m.

 

There are shops and businesses located on either side of the port’s road entrance, along Quay du Ponant. Shipchandlers and yachting agencies are aligned along the part south of the port’s offices. To the North of the quay, as you head towards the “Petite Afrique” beach, you will find boutiques and restaurants.

Approaches: The Port of Beaulieu is not clearly visible from a distance at sea. It is located in the Western part of the bay. To the East of the port, the conspicuous limestone cliff on (which you can see a road and tunnels at its base) marks the middle of the bay. The port has two entrances. The Northern is the one to be used by all yachts and most boats. The southern entrance, smaller and much shallower can only be used by boats with less than 2.5 m drafts (the channel is marked by buoys). It is also used by the sailing club.
