Walking for well-being, between land and sea
Menton is well-known for its lemons and for the festival which celebrates them every year, but there’s more to it. The area is full of hiking trails, from easy to intensely difficult. Going on a hike is the perfect opportunity to explore the coast between Menton and Monaco to visit Roquebrune-Cap-Martin. Some of the trails will even taken you as far as the Italian border, or in the hinterland.
Over the last few years, one particular sporting activity has developed on the beaches of the Mediterranean. That sport is sea walking. As its name suggest, it involves walking in the sea with a paddle, if required, to make it easier to walk. It began in the north of France and has gradually spread to all of France’s coastline. It’s a sport which you can try at any time of year – all you need is a wetsuit and diving shoes. It’s an ideal way to get some exercise and enjoy fantastic sea views!
