Plage du Midi Beach, Cannes

Sandy beach, with good access close to centre of Cannes

Categorised in:

This long and thin stretch of white sand beach runs the length of the Boulevard du Midi from the parking at the Vieux Port towards Cannes la Bocca.

The biggest section of public beach is called Plage du Midi and stretches for about 700m. Many of the beach clubs along this stretch erect pontoons during the summer months so you can escape the busy beach areas and sunbath on the pontoons. There is also children’s play area, making it an ideal family location.

There are three more public beaches along Boulevard du Midi: Plage Laugier, Plage Mistral and Plage Madrigal. They are all quite small but have showers and there are always shops, cafés and kiosks nearby. A thin promenade runs along the back of the beaches between the beach and the busy main road. You will often see cyclists and joggers along this stretch.

Setting & location

The Midi beaches are all to the west of the Old Port and start with Plage de l’Abreuvoir, a lovely stretch of sand that curves round into a rocky peninsula.

Water safety & clarity

The rocks are not only a great picnic spot but they also protect the bay, making it a calm swimming area. there are lifeguards at this beach during the peak summer months.

Beach quality

The beach here is fine sand, perfect for laying down your towel for the day.

Bars & beach clubs

The beaches and beach clubs along the Boulevard du Midi are generally a bit less expensive and a bit more casual than the nearby La Croisette area; making them popular with locals and families. They all rent out parasols and sun loungers for around 15-18€ per day, as well as serving food and drinks. Most have a daily menu featuring fresh seafood, costing around 25€ for a two-course lunch.
