Cap-d'Ail (French pronunciation: ​[kap daj]), Italian: Capodaglio or Capo d'Aglio, Occitan: Caup d'Alh) is a commune in the Alpes-Maritimes department in southeastern France.

It borders the district of La Colle in the Principality of Monaco.

Modern Cap d'Ail is a modern seaside resort with a lively shopping district on the Basse Corniche and quiet, fashionable residential quarters. Many people who work in Monaco live here. Plage la Mala is prized by many day trippers from Monaco and Nice.
