Of course, the Cote D'Azur is a beachgoer's bliss, and so you must also make sure to spend time at the very best of the beaches. Most agree that the following are among the very finest.

Cap Ferrat, Paloma Plage

Outside of Nice, this beach is viewed as one of the finest and the most opulent. It is great for diving, sightseeing the many mansions on the shore and enjoying the pleasant paths to the public beaches.

Plage du Midi, Plages de la Boca, Theoule sur mer

All in Cannes, they can be crowded but they are located in truly charming districts, offer some of the best amenities (including cafes nearby), and are public, making them great for families.

Plage du Ponteil and Plage de la Garoupe 

Both in Antibes, they are considered to be among the "rich and famous" beaches, and are part of the 48 or so beaches that line the coastal area here. With soft sands, gentle waves, and good amenities, they are must see beaches.

Plage de la Darse and Plage des Marinieres 

Both in the lovely and popular Villefranche sur mer, they are close to the fishing village, convenient to Nice, and in sight of the lovely Old Town area. These are the beaches familiar to moviegoers, and many recognize scenes from Bond movies, Hitchcock classics, and others.

Port Grimaud, Royal Canadel, and Tahiti plage

All three are part of Saint Tropez and designed to model canals of Venice. Popular with boaters and water sports enthusiasts, the beaches are busy but so well designed as to not feel crowded or unpleasant. Children in particular love the Royal Canadel.


"Isle Blue is everything they say they are. They were a pleasure to deal with and were very responsive and informative. The pictures on their website are exactly what you end up getting and they provide full concierge service throughout your stay. My family and I had an amazing time and before we even returned home, we went to the Isle Blue website to check out their inventory for our next vacation. They really are just that good!"
