When it comes to jetski-ing among superyachts or kayaking along a coastline lined with palm trees and art deco hotels, Cannes has to be one of the most glamorous and fun places along the Riviera to indulge in a day of watersports.
With long sandy beaches lined with watersport rentals and pontoons offering wakeboarding, parasailing and jetboat activities, Cannes has a huge range of watersports to choose from. You could also head off the coast for a bit of kitesurfing, learn to sail with a local club, or rent a boat to visit the nearby stunning Cannes islands. Under the water, there are several dive clubs and good snorkelling opportunities.
Operating Times: Most of the watersports operators open every day in summer, with weekend operations in June and September. Things get a lot quieter over the winter, although you will still find paddleboards, kayaks and boats to rent in some places. The wind really picks up as of October, bringing good conditions for kiteboarders and windsurfers.
