Cannes in Top 10 beach city breaks 2017

GoEuro has looked at over 1000 cities with a beach in Europe and chosen the best 100 according to the beach's quality, travel convenience, watersports, nightlife and temperature. Unsurprisingly, Cannes has reached number ten making it one of the best destinations for a summer city break in Europe.

Scoring high in all of the areas, Cannes has proved itself as not only a convenient destination for a summer break but also great for couples and groups looking for some evening entertainment and with the variety of water sports available it will appeal to families as well as those adventure-seeking travelers.

With some of the best beaches in the south of France, an international airport with connections all over the continent, world-renowned restaurants and beach clubs, an impressive amount of activities on offer, stunning sights to visit and a range of magnificent hotels to stay in, it comes as no surprise that Cannes has made it high into the list.
