Our opinion on the Palais Festivals Beach

Adresse of the Palais Festivals Beach : Promenade Robert Favre le Bret 06400 Cannes

Palais Festivals Beach in Cannes is located between Croisette and the harbor. It's one of the rare public beaches downtown and on the Croisette area. It's the most central beach, but depending on the time, it is occupied for events (Cannes Film Festival or electronic beaches in July and August).

It's one of the most agreeable beaches in Cannes with more than 150 meters of sand. The slight hill is ideal for kids who want to swim. Being close to the center of Cannes is quite nice and it has many shops. The only downfall is that you have to pay for all the parking lots, and they are expensive (about 2.70 euros/hour).

To find this beach, when you arrive in front of the Majestic, direct yourself toward the Palais des Festivals, then just before it turn left (you'll travel along the palace). The beach is on the left and extends to the dam where there is a ramp for handicap access.
