Beau Rivage Balcony - THURS, SAT & SUN
This balcony has amazing views of the first corner and up the hill to Beau Rivage, with stunning views across the harbour and Tabac corner as they return back down the hill from the Tunnel and head around to the famous Swimming Pool area.
From our terraces you can see Ste Devote (turn 1), the cars then run directly below you as they climb the steep hill of Beau Rivage, once they are out of sight you can follow them on the Giant Screen TV directly opposite the terrace, then they come back onto vision at the chicane and you see in the flesh Tabac, Swimming Pool and the run to Rascasse. You will also have spectacular views of across the harbour, the luxury yachts and over to the Prince's Palace, which is a lovely site all lit up at night!
