Cala del Forte: an exclusive experience at the Monaco Grand Prix

The Monaco Grand Prix, an iconic event in the world of motor racing, is preparing to offer an even more exclusive and unforgettable experience for its spectators. Thanks to a collaboration between the Société d’Exploitation des Ports de Monaco, the Automobile Club de Monaco and Formula One Management, the creation of a new hospitality space at the chicane of the Port of Monaco, located on a floating platform, was proudly announced. Ticket sales from Friday to Sunday during the Grand Prix are reserved for Monaco Ports customers.

With an area of 600 m², distributed on three levels, and with a total capacity of 400 people, this space will allow people to attend the event and enjoy a unique experience with direct views of the braking after the tunnel and the Monaco Circuit chicane.

Exclusive offer for clients of Cala del Forte

Customers of the Ports of Monaco, including those of Cala del Forte, have been able to book as early as the 8th of January and thus secure a privileged place for the Grand Prix.

The “Monaco Ports Lounge” package offers exclusive access to this V.I.P. space with a direct view of the circuit. Each package includes access from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. during the three days of the Grand Prix, with shuttle service by sea from Cala del Forte directly to Port Hercule via the fast MONACO ONE shuttle (reservation required) or via tender. Yachts in zone 4 will be able to anchor in the roadstead and obtain a badge to access the lounge with their tender (maximum length 9 meters). Access by land will also be possible from the dock near the Metropole.

Clients who opt for the “Monaco Ports Lounge” package will have a range of exclusive services and amenities available throughout the day. Drinks and snacks will be available to satisfy the most discerning palates, ensuring a top-notch dining experience. In addition, additional services such as Wi-Fi and access to quality restrooms will be offered.

For those who wish to enjoy fine dining during the event, it will be possible to head to the renowned Société Nautique restaurant, located just 200 meters east of the quay, next to the Yacht Club de Monaco building. This offers a unique opportunity to enjoy culinary delights in an exclusive atmosphere, further enriching the overall Monaco Grand Prix experience.

Access to all these services will be strictly controlled to ensure a high-quality experience for all guests. Each person will have a daily PASS with a unique QR code, which will be scanned upon entry to ensure exclusive, personalized access to the Monaco Ports Lounge.
