Local atmosphere!

The beaches of Moure Rouge, popular with the locals, are the best place to watch the sun as it fades into the sky. Opposite the island of Sainte-Marguerite, during the aperitif hours, dip your toes in the sand to discover the fort of Sainte-Marguerite Island, which is tinged with a beautiful orange light at sunset before illuminating itself at nightfall.

To capture this beautiful luminosity, there’s nothing like taking in the view from above, sipping a cocktail or dining on the rooftop of the Duplex restaurant with its healthy Californian atmosphere!

A sunset show

Facing the Lérins islands, with the Estérel massif on the horizon, the Palm Beach, at the end of the Croisette, offers a magical show to contemplate the colours of the sunset! To enjoy this dazzling show, sit on the pontoon of the Tamaris beach while sipping a cocktail after your day on a deckchair, or, put on your light clothes for dinner at the Médusa, which keeps the magic going with its cabaret dinner.

A festive sunset

In the heart of Cannes, the mythical Croisette is transformed for an early evening that begins with a festival of incandescent colours! Facing the bay of Cannes, on the private beaches, the music intensifies as the sun disappears behind the Esterel massif.

The atmosphere on the terraces is hushed up and the deckchairs give way to tablecloths. Beach party, aperitif with friends or dinner under the stars, a myriad of options are available to you to enjoy a festive evening on the beach while contemplating the sunset!

From the Môme Beach to the 3.14 Beach, via Mademoiselle Gray or Palais Stéphanie Beach, all the private beaches of the Croisette are in the front row to witness this grandiose show!

Until the last ray!

The beaches of Boulevard du Midi are real spots to discover, with dazzled eyes, the sun fading on the waves of the Mediterranean with the jagged silhouette of the Esterel massif as a backdrop.

With the family, as a couple, or with friends, the beach restaurants along the Boulevard Jean Hibert allow you to watch this unique spectacle with your feet in the sand and your head in the stars… Have an aperitif on a pontoon or on a wooded terrace, dine with the sound of the waves, enjoy the atmosphere on the sand, from Waikiki Beach to Le Bénitier Beach, passing by the very fashionable Belle plage, Alba and Maëma, the private beaches of the south of the island compete with each other in their creativity to dine in this heavenly setting.
