Nice France Beaches

Apr 26th, 2011 | By | Category: Beaches & Boats

Tourists and locals enjoy the warm, dry weather and long beaches of Nice most of the year. Nearly all the beaches in Nice stretch along the sweep of the bay between Rauba Capau and the airport at the other end of the Promenade des Anglais. Restaurants and boat rental shops can also be found all along the coastline.

It takes a bit of thought to get the best from the Nice beaches both public and private. The biggest hurdle to overcome is the pebbles.

At approximately equal intervals along this coastline there are about 15 private beaches separated by the public beaches. You are allowed to walk along the length of the bay including the private beaches if you remain close to the sea.

Choose between 15 private beaches, all attractive and comfortable, and the well-kept public beaches, wide open and free for all. The water is checked regularly and evaluated as ‘good’ according to European standards. 15 private beaches (open April October) all proposing beach mattresses, parasols, changing cabins, showers.

If you are looking for a sandy beach – probably the finest Cote d’Azur has to offer – then Antibes, Juan les Pins and our favourite Villefranche sur Mer.
Villefranche sur Mer is one of the best undiscovered French beaches, just a few minutes away from Nice, this sandy beach is quieter and less jam-packed with tourists than its more high-profile neighbor. There is only a handful of cafes and shops here, but sunbathing is much more pleasant. Beautiful mansions loom overhead, and there is a delightful market here. You can always hop the train and be in Nice (for shopping and so on) in five minutes.
