Cannes gets alive after the Cannes Film Festival, just before the Monaco Grand Prix, starting the summer season in style. Superyachts line-up in the bay and old port during the Festival hosting some of the wildest parties stopping only in late September. One of the most vibrant cities in the South of France, Cannes offers the very best in the yachting world, from beach clubs accessible only via yachts to crystal clear waters in between the Islands.
The most famous street in Cannes is also one of the most expensive in the world. Paved with luxury shops on one side and some of the finest beach clubs in the world on the other, the Croisette is the beating heart of Cannes. Stretching all the way from the Old Port to the port Canto, the Croisette is one of the most gorgeous avenues to peruse. Take a moment to shop in the like of Gucci or Hermes and stop for lunch in La Mome.
The Croisette hosts some of the finest beach clubs in the world, from the renowned La Mome to Annexe Beach. A new comer on the luxury scene has to be the recently renovated Carlton Beach club, with 1960s vibes. If you are in the mood for some action Miramar offers water skiing, as it was invented on the shore of Antibes, just next to Cannes.
The islands of the coast of Cannes are one of the favourite destinations for yachtsmen, with crystal clear waters and unspoiled nature. On the islands you will find an exclusive beach club, La Guérite, only accessible by boat as well as an Abbay. Spend the morning perusing the old Abbay and the lavender fields, before heading for a vibrant lunch in La Guérite.
On the St Honorat islands, the Abbay de Lérins offers the perfect escape from the vibrant South of France and the perfect opportunity to relax in a traditional environment. With lavender fields and classical architecture, the Abbay is a fantastic place to visit. It also offers a traditional restaurant right on the water.
