Nestled between Liguria and the French Riviera, just beyond the border of Menton, lies the hidden gem of Balzi Rossi. Here, the sun-kissed shores and exclusive ambiance await discerning beach club enthusiasts and yacht owners alike.
Luxurious sun loungers dot the beach, exuding an air of opulence. Reserving them in advance is highly recommended, and let me assure you, it's worth every penny. We arrived by yacht from Monaco, a mere 15-minute voyage, as the beach offers a dedicated tender dock.

We began our day with an incredible breakfast featuring Italian cappuccino and cream-filled brioches. This Italian tradition is a delight for true gourmands, and what better way to indulge in this culinary experience than by the seaside?
As a non-intrusive DJ spins lounge music in the background, the gentle sound of waves sets the perfect ambiance for contemplation and introspection. It's an opportune time to reflect on life's most important matters.

After a refreshing snorkeling session in the crystal-clear azure waters, time seems to slow down as lunch approaches. We opted to dine in the restaurant, under the cool mist of an illuminating spray. Some choose to enjoy their meals right on the sun loungers, further enhancing the sense of relaxation and indulgence.

The Italian Chef boasts a signature menu, showcasing trendy dishes such as spaghetti with sea urchins and tuna bottarga , the summer bestseller with gnocchi vongole, and Fish of the day. Meanwhile, the renowned Sanremo red prawns and oysters Gillardeau melt in your mouth, perfectly complemented by a glass of refreshing Ca' del Bosco (an Italian premium sparkling wine).
From the neighboring table, Vera and Gualtiero greet us warmly with genuine smiles. The owners are always present, for here lies the secret of a successful family business—they treat their guests like family.

The pleasant sounds of Italian, French, and Russian conversations fill the air. Guests from Monaco have long fallen in love with this place, drawn to its seclusion and comfort.
As the sun prepares to set, it's time for an aperitif. The DJ's beats grow louder, enticing guests off their loungers and onto the dance floor.

By evening, the beach transforms into a romantic gastronomic haven with white tablecloths set right at the water's edge. We change into our cocktail attire, as the dress code for dinner calls for elegance.

For dinner, the chefs prepare a grill of fresh fish and prawns, which perfectly captures the essence of summer.
We were fortunate enough to attend an evening with live music. The rhythm of the most famous hits makes it impossible to sit still. The ambiance smoothly transitions into a vibrant party beneath the starry sky.
