In a complete contrast to last week's beach which was wild, fairly empty and reasonably isolated today I'm taking you to a city beach, la Réserve - it's actually in the port area of Nice - which is always crowded and absolutely tiny! The only similarity is that it's also very rocky. So what's the charm?
People and port watching are two of the reasons I like this miniscule beach. And the view of the grandiose villas on Mt Boron isn't bad either. There's just something about this place that appeals, not for every day but occasionally it hits the mark. You make a camp in a crack in the rocks and watch the Corsica ferries come and go; it's different.
