The most famous beach on the Coté d'Azur is undoubtedly Plage Royale in Cannes. This gorgeous stretch of white sand is popular with celebrities - but you'll have to pay an entrance fee to mingle with the stars. For a free option, head to the nearby Plage Macé, where local families prefer to relax.
You'll find great beaches in Antibes, too. Plage de la Salis offers a bit of calm, while Plage du Ponteil is more popular, and has a great atmosphere in the busy summer months. Why not join a game of volleyball here?
Beyond the beach
Beach holidays in the south of France are always fun, but there's so much more to see and do in this area. You can explore the city of Cannes and see how the rich and famous live - or, for something more authentic, visit the nearby village of Peillon. High on a steep hill, this remote village has barely changed for hundreds of years and gives you the chance to experience a slower pace of life.
When you're by the sea, don't just sunbathe. You can also explore the underwater world when you go snorkelling at Plage les Fossettes. Here you can follow a 200m undersea trail, showing you the variety of life in the Mediterranean.
Don't miss the chance to see the Îles de Lerins, just a ferry ride away from Cannes. These charming islands, packed with forests, seem a world away from the hustle and bustle of the mainland, and are perfect for a relaxing day trip.
