Our opinion on the Croisette Beach

Adresse of the Croisette Beach : Bd de la Croisette 06400 Cannes

All along the Croisette we find many sand beaches. Only on two sides are there equipped public beaches. The rest are private. Croisette beach in Cannes is free on the west end, the area closest to downtown and the Palais des Festivals (see the map). It is situated between the private beach Goeland and the B-Sud Beach across from the Majestic (not that we can also find a city beach between these two in June-August).

Because of its central position, this beach is one of the busiest of Cannes. Close by is the Palais des Festivals Beach and it offers a good alternative even if it equally as busy.

As for the other beaches, parking is expensive (2.70 euros/hour). During the summer there are nights with fireworks due to the pyrotechnic festival of Cannes. This beach is sought out because the fireworks are launched from the Bay of Cannes.
