In addition to long days, there is very little precipitation. On average only 1 rain day for the entire month and as little as 21 mm of rain. Humidity hovers around an average of 75%. The sunny, dry days are perfect for soaking up the sun.
The taste of salt is always in the air of Monte Carlo, but it is most often carried by a gentle breeze off the Mediterranean Sea. However, there is 33% chance of having a windy day in Monte Carlo in July, but the sea breeze offers relief on warmer days.
The warm waters of the Mediterranean are also particularly inviting. Visitors can expect sea temperatures rise to an average of 23°C (73°F). These comfortable temperatures make the Monte Carlo coast an ideal place for swimming, diving and partaking in water sports throughout July and into August.
Monte Carlo Hotels In July
July is the high season in Monte Carlo and it is recommended that visitors book accommodation at the hotels, holiday apartments and other rentals well in advance. This is particularly true for visitors hoping to stay at one of Monte Carlo's beachfront properties or upscale resorts.
Monte Carlo is known for its high-end hotels, particularly those offering sweeping views of the Mediterranean. Few hotels can promise and deliver a better beach location than the Monte-Carlo Beach. The Monte-Carlo Beach was opened in 1929, as the newest and most glamorous place to seek sun along the Riviera.
A large-scale renovation, led by the famed architect and designer India Modhavi in 1999, re-established the Monte-Carlo Beach as one of the premier beachfront properties in Monte-Carlo. Each of the 40 rooms has a view of the Mediterranean and guests enjoy access to the Monte-Carlo Beach's glorious, seaside swimming pool, not to mention the hotel's private beach.
Visitors with a budget in mind should consider Miramar Hotel. This smaller hotel's location is impeccable near to the port, and the cost is reasonable, particularly for Monte Carlo.
Those seeking seaside accommodation with more privacy can consider renting an apartment or villa along the coast. Monte Carlo has a number of self-service rentals, including fantastic accommodation options for couples, families and larger groups.
