The best beaches in Cannes and its surroundings

Maybeguest blog

The DNA of Cannes: the sun and the beach. With the Esterel massif in the background and the Lerins Islands on the horizon, the Cannes coastline has nearly 8 kilometers of beaches. At the beginning, Cannes was a winter resort for rich foreigners, but today it is appreciated for its generous and benevolent sunshine all year round. Between public and private beaches, let yourself be tempted by this sweet promise of idleness.

Public beaches

Of the 13 public beaches in Cannes, two are located on the Croisette.
The Palais des Festivals beach is appreciated for its fine sand and its gentle slope, which facilitates access to the water for the youngest. It is easily accessible from downtown.

The Croisette beach is very popular, and particularly busy in summer. It is located in front of the Martinez hotel, positioned in the center of the beach.

These two beaches offer many amenities: toilets, showers, access for the disabled.

Located further east, at the very end of the Croisette, Bijou Plage has the Handiplage label. With its first aid station and supervised swimming, its access to the water on a gentle slope, it is particularly suitable for families. You will also have a breathtaking view of the Lerens Islands.

Private beaches

Between Cannes La Bocca in the west and Golfe Juan in the east, the bay of Cannes has about fifty beaches. Mostly located between the Palais des Festivals and the Palm Beach, the 33 private beaches in concession are urban and have a restaurant. The most famous ones are spread out along The Croisette and are managed by the palaces: crackling flashes, jubilant crowds and stars in promo, the usual scenario of the beaches of the Hotel Martinez, the Intercontiental Carlton or the Majestic Barrière during the Film Festival in May.
