Posh beach, where the rich and famous play but us plebs can still sit and watch their goings on. Public beach nearby which is free and places to sit on the prom and buy a sandwich and coffee. Bit noisy with the super cars driving back and forth but on the whole very enjoyable.

A great place to go and people watch, sitesee and enjoy the scenery. Make sure to checkout the marina, some incredible boats berthed there.
Great sidewalk cafes and restaurants with fantastic coffee and food.

Cannes is a busy upmarket town and resort. All the five star hotels are on the croisette. The the croisette overlooks the beach with its lovely busy restaurants. People dress well in the town, so that is a spectacle in itself. Lots of high end luxury brand shops face the croisette. There are two casinos on either end of the croisette. The Palais des festivals is very near the Majestic hotel near the old port where you can see the yachts moored

All you feel is energy on this street, from the restaurants to the shops to taking pics where the film festival is held. Seeing the yachts and the Cannes sign was amazing!

If you like a flat jog in the morning to burn off the calories or some over-refreshment from the night before, here is the place to do it.

I personally count La Croisette starting at the furthest East point, technically the Radisson Blu opposite the Marina (le vieux port). The wide pavements and boats with sun shimmering off the calm waters is very soothing.

Then you move on to the Croisette ‘proper’ once you get past the ‘bunker’ where the festivals are held on the right hand side. You have nearly covered a kilometre at this point so don’t give up!

Then carry on running along the plage side if the Croisette - don’t be tempted to run along the pavements fronting the prime shops or fabulous hotels: the pedestrian and vehicular traffic is overwhelming. Besides, you get a better view of the scenery from the wide open pavements and landscaping fronting the sea.

Keep going all the way around to the far harbour - about a 3k trot - and marvel at the scale of the yachts berthed there and wonder at how The tax man could miss such obvious targets to ill-declared enterprise. It makes for a fine morning. My favourite! By my reckoning, it is a 5k round trip. On the way back, stop off in the old town, just past or behind the Town Hall, for some authentic French chow.
