Afternoon: Dine, swim, shop
Lunch: There are certain lunch tables in Cannes where a booking definitely commands respect, although they do tend to come with a hefty price tag. Having said that you cannot go wrong at the superb La Palme d’Or Restaurant, which received 2 Michelin stars in 1991 and has never lost them. Those looking for a surprisingly reasonable Michelin experience should head to Le Park 45 Restaurant, which has set lunch menus starting at 55 euros, and a simply stunning garden setting in the grounds of the Le Grand Hotel.
Beach Clubs: One of the best options is to make your way to one of the fashionable beach clubs, where you can have a delicious seafood lunch before adjourning to a deckchair for an afternoon of sunbathing, splashing about, and possibly a cocktail or two. La Plage Beach Club at Hotel Majestic Barriere is a firm favourite.
Shopping: Mid-afternoon is the traditional time to hit the shops, particularly on a Saturday afternoon. The Croisette of Cannes boasts a range of flagship boutiques that the jetset tend to favour and if you’re out to impress, then you might want to purchase a small trifle from one of the big-name designers and flaunt that bag as you continue along the street.
