Your Easy Travel Guide To Cannes With Pictures

19.2KShares

Cannes is a small city by the sea that has a lot of history. A great name, great buildings on the coast, and great sandy beaches, both free and paid.

It's the old port, and there are a lot of huge motor yachts there. You can walk by them and be envious. Or you can stay for one of the great fireworks shows. In fact, Cannes isn't very interesting except for the beautiful and peaceful shore and maybe three blocks inland (to the rail station). The town is covered in bad architecture and has very little to offer. This article will serve you as a travel guide to Cannes.

Best Cannes Beaches

You can also rent a sun lounger or parasol from the local government on the public beach on the right for half the price of a private beach during the day.

However, you can't eat there. Regie municipal: Furniture-rentable beaches are called that because they are open to the public. Another one is Plage Zamenhoff, shown in the picture below.

People who don't have to pay for public beaches in Cannes like the three at the start of La Croisette, near the Palais des Festivals, as well as the beach at the far end, Plage Zamenhoff, which is free. Between these, there is a lot of restaurant and hotel space that takes up half a kilometer until just before the bay ends.

When it's not too hot, the beach at Plage Zamenhoff is called a "regie municipal." It looks out toward the Festival Hall and Le Suquet. In Cannes, the Zamenhoff beach is on the east end of the main bay, next to Porto Canto and near the Parc Croisette underground parking and the No. 8 bus stop, so it's easy to get there.

It's called Bijpu Beach, and it's a great place to go for a long walk or a short drive along La Croisette. It's very handicap-friendly, and there's a good, not-too-busy parking lot right next to it.

West beaches of Cannes, France, are on the other side of Le Suquet and the Old Port. When I went to the beach at 9 am in August, there were a lot of older people there doing aqua gym workouts.

Here, there are a lot of pay loungers and small beach cafe restaurants. Locals like them because they serve better food for less money in a better atmosphere than La Croisette beaches, and even better than Nice beach restaurants, too!

Does Cannes Have Nice Beaches

There are public and private beaches in Cannes. Both are beautiful in their own way.

Private ones have a lot of extras, like lockers, sun loungers, and waiter service. They're also close to La Croisette, the city's main street.

How Much Is A Sunbed In Cannes

Private beaches don't have as many sun beds, but they're not going away as quickly as they do on public beaches. You can enjoy the sun without having to spend a lot of money.

You can rent a sunbed for just €3.70 for half a day, or €6.70 for a whole day. Toilets and hot showers come with the rental, but if you want a locker it costs extra.

Alternative Beaches

You can also go 22 km east to Nice's long pebble beaches, or 20 km southwest for the horseshoe cove of Plage d'Agay, which has a lot of room, but parking on the road is very limited. The sand is very rough, but the beach is beautiful, the atmosphere is peaceful, and families feel right at home there. Along the road through the village, there are some shops and cafes.

Frejus Plage is also a good beach for kids. It's just 5 km from Agay, and though it's small, it's well-protected, has fine sand, and has cafes and kids' things. Again, there is very little parking, so get there early.

Jellyfish

There are no sharks on the coast of the Cote d'Azur at all, but jellyfish do come by. Most of the time, they are Pelagia noctiluca jellyfish, which are small and easy to see. The sting hurts, but it's not dangerous. Scientists haven't been able to figure out why these purple lobbies come out of nowhere every few years.

Jellyfish stings can be prevented by using a sun cream called Medusyl that doesn't let the tentacles of jellyfish get stuck to the skin.

What To Do If Stung

If you get stung, you can either deal with it on your own or go to the nearest lifeguard or first aid station, where they should have an antidote on hand.

To get rid of the stingers, soak the area in saltwater and rub it with sand. Take very hot water and soak the area. Avoid the urine cure. It doesn't work, and neither does washing the stings off with fresh water.

Stinger Netting

Gazagnaire, Mace, and Plages du Midi beaches put up nets to keep out stringers during the summer.

Water quality in Cannes is excellent. Samples are taken every few days during the summer and checked for contamination. It is at the entrance to all beaches and on the website for the city. Porto Canto to Moure Rouge is the only place where pollution levels can get a little high because of boats from Porto Canto, which is right next to it.

Cannes Weather

Cannes gets a lot of rain, even during the notoriously wet Cannes Film Festival week. June through August should be the best months for tourists to visit, though it will be crowded.

Firework festivals in Cannes and other nearby towns like Antibes and Cagnes-sur-Mer are a great way to get a lot of value for your money. The Mediterranean Sea is a great temperature, the sun is out for at least 12 hours a day, and the air is usually warm enough for T-shirts and shorts all the time if you want to keep things simple. During the summer, temperatures can reach highs of 28C and lows of 17C, while in the winter, they can reach highs of 14C and lows of 4.

When it comes to rainfall, October and November are the months that are most likely to be wet.
