Discover David Niven's cove - Level 2 Navigation

Only ten minutes sailing time from Beaulieu, the David Niven cove is undoubtedly the most accessible by boat. Maybe it's also a local favorite, as it does not appear on the official nautical charts. Its translucent waters, its posidonia meadows, its location in front of the villa of the late David Niven makes it the dream anchorage par excellence.

Navigation tips

Leave the port of Beaulieu by the South-West pass and pass successively in front of the Beaulieu Yacht Club, La Réserve, villa Eiffel  then the Villa Kerylos. Stay at least 100 m away from the coast, because in case of swell, the rocky plateau can form waves. Cross the Baie des Fourmis and aim for the Villa David Niven, remarkable with its pink facade.

Devant la villa David Niven
The villa where David Niven lived is now called The Cape Flower.

Once you get close to the villa, approach reasonably while keeping at least 2 metres from the bottom and at least 100 metres from the shore. Be careful to avoid anchors of other boats and anchor according to the wind direction. Of course, avoid the Posidonia meadows by trying to anchor on the sand.

Sea bathing

Once the batteries are recharged, and if you return to port at solar-powered speed, you can aim for a return to almost 100% charge.
