The welcome springtime scents of the Mediterranean will soon be making your taste buds tingle and your thoughts turn to vacation ideas. On March 19, the elegant Monte-Carlo Beach is opening for a new season focused on freedom and new experiences. Here, fine dining and relaxation go hand in hand with an eco-friendly approach in full bloom. There are so many tempting possibilities…
#1: Delicious flavors:
Nature is truly a miraculous thing. Once spring has sprung, gardens and vegetable patches come alive once more. Every last fruit, vegetable and herb serves as inspiration for Paolo Sari, head chef at gourmet restaurant Elsa, the only Michelin-starred establishment to achieve 100% organic status approved by Ecocert. This Italian chef’s cuisine is an ode to health and nature, a partition of excellent taste that sings the praises of Mediterranean produce.
#2: Enthralling evenings:
Head to La Vigie Lounge & Restaurant for a captivating evening. For the second year running, this venue has dreamed up a unique experience for you to enjoy from midday to midnight. Berth at the jetty and head for the terrace extending out over the sea, where you can enjoy some signature cocktails in a jazzy atmosphere before a night out, or savor a Mediterranean-inspired meal concocted by Paolo Sari against a backdrop of live music. It's the ideal way to prolong an idyllic day in the sun. Here, time stands still in a never-ending bubble of bliss.
#3: Wellness at Le Tigre Monte-Carlo:
A haven of peace has blossomed in the heart of Monte-Carlo Beach, inviting you to let go during some open-air therapy and yoga. Make “healthy body, healthy mind” your motto. Each visitor is treated to a bespoke experience, and you can choose from a roster of gentle or dynamic disciplines, including yoga sessions, massages, and treatments and courses focused on emotional and physical wellbeing. Here, you are sure to find balance and harmony!
#4: Sunday brunches:
Le Deck brings a casual chic ambiance to Monte-Carlo Beach’s legendary swimming pool. This is the perfect place to tuck into a gourmet Sunday brunch in the cooling shade of the restaurant’s Pompeian red colonnade. The sweet and savory treats are served hot or cold: Paola Sari’s varied buffet is made exclusively from fresh local organic produce. A few live cooking demos also enhance this casual culinary experience that you will love sharing with friends and family in a truly delightful setting.
#5: Respect for biodiversity:
Ever since it won Green Globe certification back in 2014, Monte-Carlo Beach has worked tirelessly to support sustainable development. Everything from the meals it serves (with Paolo Sari’s 100% organic, Ecocert-winning cuisine) to the transport it offers (electric vehicles for guest use) demonstrates Monte-Carlo Beach's unswerving commitment to this ethical endeavor. Another example in 2019 is the installation of an underwater dyke in the form of an artificial riprap to counter the effects of the ocean’s swell, which will protect the magnificent Vigie peninsula and Saint-Roman beach without affecting existing flora and fauna.
Last but not least...
There is no shortage of ways to relax. Solariums, tents, cabanas and bungalows are all available to hire so that you can make the most of your time spent by the sea or beside the Olympic-sized pool. If you are looking to stay fit and active, there are also plenty of watersports options at the Monte-Carlo Beach Club, including parasailing, tubing, MasterCraft® sailing and Flyboard® trips. There's no doubt about it: Everything's possible at Monte-Carlo Beach!
