Monaco, the jewel in the crown of the Côte d’Azur

With so much to discover, explore such sights as the Rock of Monaco, perched high above the city and overlooking the many moored super yachts. Or why not set out to discover over 900 plant species in Monaco’s Exotic Garden?

There’s such a diverse range of activities and attractions, the city of Monaco really does offer something for everyone.

Immerse yourself in the Monégasque atmosphere from the comfort of a yacht

Whether it’s for a short stay or part of a longer yacht charter, Monaco is the city with everything you need for an idyllic getaway on a yacht.

Plan your dream yachting weekend in Monaco

You’ve just arrived in Monaco and are ready to step aboard your yacht rental, set to discover a unique panoramic coastline. Begin by exploring the Rock of Monaco, a sheer rock face towering above the sea, before sailing along the coast to enjoy swimming and watersports in crystal clear waters, among the most beautiful spots to anchor in the Côte d’Azur.

Now you’re ready to start your cruise along the Cap d’Antibes to the peninsula of Saint Jean Cap Ferrat. This haven of calm offers breathtaking sea views where you can stop for a delicious lunch on board the yacht, followed by wild swimming on the shore. Having explored the water, it’s time to head inland for an unforgettable night in Monaco.

Wake up to a freshly-prepared breakfast in the harbour before continuing your voyage to the small hilltop village of Eze and dipping your toes in the Bay of Vilefranche before lunch. Seafood lovers will be delighted by the array of local produce available at Mother Germaine, a truly authentic establishment. Return to the water to try kayaking or explore the depths of the seabed using one of the yacht’s seabobs. Dividing your time between land and sea ensures you can take in the beauty of Nice and the Bay of Angels from both sides, guaranteeing you won’t forget this sensational weekend.
