There are two ports in Menton for yachtsmen either stopping over or planning a longer stay.
The "Old Port", which appears protected by the The Bastion and which extends the long jetee and the private port of Garavan, bigger and newer than the former, which is nestled to the east of the bay of the same name, right next to the Italian border.
"Le vieux port"
At the foot of the old town, the Municipal port is dominated by the "Basilique Saint-Michel".
The Bastion, home to the Jean Cocteau Museum declares the port’s entrance.
The restaurants along the quay propose a wonderful variety of fresh fish, caught daily by the local Menton fishermen.
Right next to the port, the extensive "Sablette" beach awaits tourists and yachtsmen alike to enjoy a refreshing dip in the deap blue waters.
The public port has 460 moorings in winter and up to 580 moorings in summer and furthermore the charges are the lowest in the department.
