For good reason, the French Riviera has been home to some of the world’s largest yachts. The coast provides all of the infrastructure required to disembark in style directly at your preferred beach club, restaurant, or nightclub. The South of France has some incredible cruising grounds, and here we look at the ones around Cannes Bay. You will be able to enjoy unforgettable experiences after renting a boat in Cannes for a day or the weekend.
La guérite, possibly Cannes’s most famous beach club, is a traditional bar that opened in the 1900s for day boaters to enjoy an ice-cold drink on the Iles de Lérins. With some of the most lavish parties on the Riviera, the restaurant is quickly becoming one of the highlights of party life in Cannes. There is nothing quite like arriving in La Guérite on your own boat and swimming in the water after lunch in between the islands.
Iles de Lérins
The crystal clear waters between the Iles de Lérins are ideal for dropping anchor and lazing in the sun for the day. An old abbey and lavender fields can be found on the shores, making it ideal for those looking for adventure and exploration. The old restaurant of the Abbay provides the ideal calm and relaxed setting for enjoying the delicacies of the South of France.
Massif de L’Esterel
On the other side of the bay, the Massif de L’Esterel offers some of the most beautiful natural coves and bays. The red rocks are breathtaking, providing a true escape from the more typical South of France coastline. The almost untouched marine life makes the location ideal for an afternoon of snorkelling.
Carlton Beach Club
With a 1960s-inspired design, the newly renovated Carlton Beach Club exudes exceptional vintage vibes. While sipping on an ice-cold Provence rosé, the top-notch gastronomy experience is a must-do for any visitors to Cannes. The beach club has a pier where guests arriving on a yacht can disembark in style.
Whether you are a nature lover or a party goer, Cannes is the ideal place to rent a boat and enjoy life on the water!
