Beaches in Nice

The beaches in Nice are always associated with the Promenade des Anglais and are classified public or private. This is normal as the vast majority of local attraction sites are located very close to this famous 8 km long avenue. Let us set aside a little, to situate us from the Rue Saint-François de Paul, and to reach the Beau Rivage.

It is located at the meeting point between this promenade which constitutes a tourist objective and the Quay of the United States. The Verdure theater, the open-air theater serves as a landmark since the beach is close by. It is one of the most popular to see walkers and bathers on site early in the morning.

It is always pleasant to admire the landscape of the Baie des Anges, without spending a penny for a moment lazing on the public beach. After a short jump to the shops of the city center and a visit to Old Nice, take a few steps and find us at the Beau Rivage.

It is suitable for sunbathing with the children since part of this beach is arranged with artificial sand so that they can play there quietly. Other activities are offered at 250 meters as beach volleyball on the beach of Les Ponchettes. For those who want to enjoy the restoration and the deckchair, no need to go far, part of the site is private.

To know that this beach has a sanitary equipment and the level of security adapted to the numbers of the visitors. It is labeled as a blue flag in 2010 and classified as a non-smoking area, so that surveillance is carried out by municipal officials. The latter inform the public about the sun and its effects with the consumption of tobacco using a brochure.
