The Old Port of Menton

Nicknamed la perle de la France (the Pearl of France), Menton is a well-known beach resort on the French Riviera. The city is not only known for its sunny weather, but also for being a lemon-growing place, which is celebrated every year during the Lemon Festival. Menton has two marinas: the town port or Old Port and the Garavan private port. Bigger and newer, the latter is nested in the East of the bay of the same name, near the Italian border.

In the guise of a postcard, the Old Port of Menton is at the foot of the old city and dominated by the Saint-Michel Basilica. The “Bastion,” which houses the Jean Cocteau Museum, shows the port entrance. The berths of this marina are sought-after, if there is any booking opportunity at all. Do not wait any longer to find out about it!

There are numerous businesses, and in particular restaurants along the dock. There, you can taste a diversity of fresh fishes, brought back by Menton local fishermen. If you are looking for a place to rest, we can recommend you the large Sablettes beach, which is only a few minutes away from the Old Port. Your mooring ring would therefore be ideally situated.

In terms of specificities, the Old Port marina has 460 berths during winter, and 590 berths during summer, for up-to-twenty-five-meter-long boats. In this port where fishing and sailing coexist, amateur yachtsmen have access to commodities such as running water, electricity, weather information, Wi-Fi internet access, and locker-rooms to change. The Old Port marina also has installations allowing them to carry out technical tasks such as the hoisting (up to a hundred metric tons) and the hull cleaning, as well as other services.
