Sun & Bath
With 300 days of sunshine a year, Monaco offers a mild climate all year round and in the summer months, the temperature is between 22-32 degrees. During the winter months, it is cooler and the temperature is usually around 7-16 degrees.
Monaco is located right on the Mediterranean Sea, which means that the water temperature in the summer months is very pleasant and the beaches are quickly filled up in Monaco. The largest beach is Plage du Larvotto, on this beach, there is the possibility to rent loungers and also have lunch at various beach clubs.
For those who want to sunbathe and swim on a beach that is not as crowded, we recommend taking the train just across the border to Cap d’Ail. In Cap d’Ail we recommend the beach Plage Mala, where there are sun loungers for rent as well as beach clubs that suit the whole family.
In Monaco you can enjoy luxury shopping, the country is filled with big and luxurious shops on virtually every street.
If you are in front of the central shopping area “The Monte-Carlo Pavilions” you can find stores such as Alexander Mcqueen, Balenciaga, Chanel, Chopard, Yves Saint Laurent, Piaget, Bottega Veneta and Lanvin. Just a stone’s throw away, you can find shops on the Casino de Monte Carlo streets such as Cartier, Audemars Piguet, Rolex, Prada, Valentino, Hermés and Gucci.
For those who do not want to spend so much money on luxury products and want to keep a more casual shopping, the Metropole Shopping Center fits perfectly. There you will find stores like Hugo Boss, Kenzo and Sephora.
Monaco’s entertainment is great and you can choose freely for your own taste, if you have a wallet that allows it so to speak.
