featured in Beaches Updated

Clean and well maintained but free to use. No umbrellas, chairs or sun loungers are provided but you can pick your spot to lay down your towel for the day.

There are a whole host of coffee shops, snack stalls and cafés that are beach side or restaurants along the main promenade.

This beach is very close to the Palais des Festivals and is the first on the La Croisette stretch coming from the west.

It's fairly wide, giving you plenty of room to spread out and you may find a few games of volleyball and other beach games going on, it's the perfect spot for it.

Setting & Location

You will find the beach situated between the Majestic Beach Club and the end of Promenade Robert Favre le Bret, at the west end of a long cove that is sheltered from the wind.

Within an easy walk from the Cannes train station, parking can be scarce in the area but there is paid parking at the Palais des Festivals or in several of the underground garages.

This is a long and wide stretch of golden sand.
