Beaches in the Côte d'Azur

The coast during the summer months is notoriously busy and on some beaches you’ll struggle to find space. However, there are some quieter areas and if you’re after a bit of sea and sand, it’s useful to know where to head.

Nice has 15 private beaches with public ones in between, stretching for over four miles from the airport to the Vieux Port. They are pebbly and can be quite steep in parts, making them not particularly ideal for younger children. However, there are stretches that are less steep, and it’s here that you’ll see most families.
