Balzi Rossi: beach, sun, yoga and relaxation at Ventimiglia in my Italy
Balzi Rossi is one of the beaches I visited this summer. Up until today I have shared the pictures of my vacation in Monte Carlo but Balzi Rossi beach is neither part of the principality of Monaco nor France. Balzi Rossi is right on the border between Italy and France: in Ventimiglia.
Many royals go to Balzi Rossi. It is a beach made out of white stones, on the inside of a cavity of a rock. A very intimate place, not for many people, just how I like it.
I have never been to Ventimiglia before. I don’t know why, but I have always thought of the place as anonymous: I discovered it’s exactly the contrary.
To get to Balzi Rossi beach you must park in a pinewood forest. You must walk for 10 minutes amongst beautiful rocks, with a beautiful sea view, as you can see in the pictures. In case you don’t want to walk to Balzi Rossi, you can get picked it’sup in a golf cart.
My day at La spighetta of Balzi Rossi in Ventimiglia.
- 8:00 in the morning: yoga
- 9:30 detox breakfast
- continued by a swim and tanning session
- 13:30 lunch based on fish dishes
- then a bit of work on my computer at the beach bar
- 20:00 dinner time at Balzi Rossi restaurant
- 21:00 themed party organized by Balzi Rossi
Doing yoga by the sea is stupendous: in the morning there is a beautiful light (as you may observe in the pictures) and in the evening it’s even prettier.
The detox breakfast was quinoa with blueberries, cereals and green tea, the right input to continue a day of relaxation, sun and ocean before the moment comes to go the restaurant and have a good lunch, made with fish.
Balzi Rossi beach has been visited, for years, by Italian VIPs and foreigners, attracted not somuch by the place but by the famous restaurant that often organizes themed parties.
I hop that you like the photosYana Khankhatova took.
