Our opinion on the Beau Rivage Beach

Adresse of the Beau Rivage Beach : 107 Quai des Etats Unis 06300 Nice

Beau Rivage Beach in Nice is located at the junction of Promenade des Anglais and Quai des Etats-Unis, near the open air theatre. It is the only beach in Nice with a landscaped sand area (artificial). This area is available to kids in the morning to use as a play space and is used as a beach in the afternoon. The sand area is located near the stream Paillon at 50 meters from the open air theatre, but attention: you are not on the sand beaches of Antibes!

This public beach also has a private zone with a restaurant and mattress rentals.

Note that the beach volleyball court is available at 250 meters going toward the harbor on Ponchettes Beach.

This is a nice beach just a few steps away from Old Nice and near Albert 1st Garden.

This beach is tobacco-free so smoking is not allowed. This beach does have a lifeguard in the summer.
