What Is Cannes Known For?

World-renowned for its glamorous and prestigious international film festival, Cannes is a French Riviera resort town and social hub for Europe’s elite. Despite the extensive coastline, there are a few small beaches and only two of them are free, Plage du Midi and Plage de la Boca, with the others being privately owned and operated by the hotels that are behind them.

A Quick Guide to Cannes

  • La Croisette: One of the most famous sights in Cannes is the palm-tree lined boulevard with the city on one side and beach on the other. La Croisette is a promenade full of designer boutiques, luxury hotels, and the finest dining. Much of the beach is managed by the hotel associated with it, though there is a small corner available to the public with expensive beach chairs to rent.
  • Rue d'Antibes: The main shopping street of Rue d'Antibes has a mix of branded stores, independent boutiques, cafes, and restaurants. The street is one-way for car traffic, positioned one block behind La Croisette and meticulously well-maintained.
  • Rue Meynadier: Rue Meynadier is a short, charming pedestrian street that begins in Old Town and meanders toward the western end of Rue d’Antibes. It is packed with 18th century buildings repurposed as specialty food stores, affordable clothing stores, cafes, and casual dining options.
  • Îles de Lérins: The Îles de Lérins islands are a 15 minute ferry ride each from the Cannes port. Sainte Marguerite is heavily forested and criss-crossed with roads great for walking. Fort Royal Ste-Marguerite Island is a large Roman ruin fort that’s fun to explore, with a few places to eat as well. Saint Honorat is a small island, home to monks and spiritual retreats since the 5th century. The island only contains the well-preserved Saint Honnorat fortress, four small chapel ruins, and Abbaye De Lérins, which is still a working abbey. The monks who live there earn money by making wine and liqueurs from grapes and herbs on the island, frequently sold in the local gift shops.

Musée International de la Parfumerie has displays of perfume bottles from the ancient to modern eras, an interactive display where visitors can smell historical fragrances, and exhibitions on the perfume making process. A historic perfume factory called Parfumerie Fragonard, as well as Grasse Institute of Perfumery, and multiple perfume boutiques — most notably Parfumerie Galimard — are scattered throughout town. There are two golf courses on the edge of town in addition to a mix of restaurants and accommodation throughout the area.
  • Nice: The fifth-largest city in France and the regional capital, Nice has had a reputation as the winter getaway for European elites and artists since the 18th century. Vieux Nice is the charming, medieval old city with many small art galleries, restaurants, open-air markets, beaches, and historical sites such as Fontaine du Soleil and Nice Cathedral. The Matisse Museum and National Museum of Marc Chagall are both north of the old town. Monaco is 30 minutes east by car or train.

Best Neighborhoods in Cannes

  • Le Suquet: Le Suquet is a petite, medieval neighborhood with cobblestone alleys and Vieux Port de Cannes: the historic port filled with yachts. The famous traditional outdoor market, Marché Forville, has many stalls with fresh produce, flowers, seafood, and cheese. Other features include Musee de la Castra, the Gothic church Notre-Dame d'Espérance and the tip of the public beach, Plage du Midi.
  • City Center: The City Center Includes Rue d’Antibes, La Croisette, and the central train station. Here you’ll also find the Olympia Cinema, Palais des Festivals, a few casinos, and Pointe Croisette. Locals sometimes call the area “La Banane” because of its banana-like shape.
  • Le Cannet: On a hill overlooking the city, accessed by the striking Boulevard Carnot, Le Cannet is a wide neighborhood known for its art galleries, Art Deco homes, more affordable hotels, and young crowd. All types of commercial services are available including the post office, banks, and pharmacies to the requisite cafes, restaurants, and accommodation.
