Yachting on the French Riviera: Our Three Top Spots


Antibes is split into two neighbouring areas but, despite their proximity, the two couldn't be more different. Cap d'Antibes is the place to head for if you're looking for peaceful, beautiful beaches while Juan-les-Pins is a glitzy resort full of bars, restaurants and casinos. Here you will also find Port Vauban, the largest private marina in Europe.July sees the yearly Jazz a Juan festival take place at Juan-les-Pins: make sure you enjoy drinks at Le Crystal, which has been serving up classy cocktails since 1938.


Famous for its annual film festival, Cannes, with its picture-perfect coastline is the ideal place to visit in the summer. There is plenty of gourmet cuisine to tempt you during the day while the nightlife here is nothing short of legendary. Boats often meet by the Lérins Islands and the stunning Old Town is accessed from the Old Port. Don't miss the Boulevard de la Croisette, a high-end waterfront promenade.


Located in the very heart of the French Riviera, Nice is an ancient city that has retained its grandeur despite being a tourist hotspot. The ideal destination for foodies, Nice is famous for the Cours Saleya, a market square filled with food and flowers by day that becomes a network of classy restaurants and eateries by night.
