Only fifty years ago Fontvieille was nothing more than a narrow stretch of sand where the rock plunged into the sea. The emergence of a new area in Monaco was linked to the economic development of the principality. During the development of these new plots of land (17 hectares encroaching on the sea) one section was set aside for the creation of a marina. Sitting at the foot of the Rock of Monaco to the east, the Port of Fontvieille is certainly one of the most sheltered in the region, being protected from the easterly winds by the rock and from the southerly and westerly swell by the large sea wall, which provides protection to the entire Fontvielle area.
At the very heart of the residential area of Fontvieille, the marina offers full facilities for both amateur sailors who are simply passing through and longer-stay visitors. This haven of peace can accommodate up to 275 boats with a maximum draught of three metres. Leisure sailors have at their disposal all the services required for the proper functioning of a marina: water and electricity at each berth in addition to toilet facilities and showers. A shopping centre, hypermarkets, the Monaco heliport and the sporting complex of Louis II stadium can also be found in the vicinity.
Numerous restaurants on the waterfront and nearby shops make the Port of Fontvieille a place of vitality to be explored at a leisurely pace in any season.
