Cap-d'Ail may be one of the best-kept secrets for visitors to the French Riviera. This tiny location is central to some big attractions. Even a budget hostel backpacker can feel like they're living large here!

The main attraction within Cap-d'Ail is Mala Beach. Visitors and locals alike prefer this beach to the ones in surrounding cities. Nice beaches to the west are uncomfortably rocky, while Monaco beaches to the east are incredibly polluted. This sandy coastline with blue water attracts many to Mala Beach every day, especially in the summer. However, since this hidden alcove is still a secret to many travelers, you should still have no problem finding a spot to lay your beach blanket, even at the height of tourist season.

At the border of Mala Beach, you can find a walking path. This path runs along the Mediterranean Sea and offers incredible views worth photographing. If you walk the path's entire length, you will end up in another country! Monaco, one of the world's smallest nations, is just a few kilometers away from Cap-d'Ail. Monaco is a good change of pace from Cap-d'Ail. You go from a commune of a few thousand to the nation with the greatest population density! If you are wanting to explore Monaco but don't want to pay the high prices to stay there, booking a hostel in Cap-d'Ail is an ideal solution.

Because the only real attraction in Cap-d'Ail is Mala Beach, you should probably just book one night in a hostel. If you choose to stay in a local hostel longer, you'll definitely want to check out the neighboring cities. The Cap-d'Ail is serviced by a regional train. That line can take you across Southern France, through Monaco, and into Italy. Besides Monaco, Nice is another popular nearby city for travelers.
