Experience the best of Paris.
No trip to the French Riviera would be complete without a visit to Cannes. Located in the south of France, the city is a mecca for those with a taste for upscale, relaxed Mediterranean living. The city lies 25 km east of the Nice Airport but is equally accessible by plane or boat. A convenient bus shuttle between the airport and Cannes departs every half hour and the city's marina welcomes yachts if you have made arrangements for a short stay.
Once in the city, it is time to sit back and enjoy the warm sun and surf. Cannes only has one public beach but there are many private beaches owned by local hotels. The public beach is located on the east end of town and features a large expanse of soft white sand and chaise lounges for your sun bathing pleasure.Be sure to inquire when making your accommodations whether or not your hotel offers a private beach.
