Good plan, new in Cannes: Ideal activity for snorkelling lovers

Discover the first underwater eco-museum in France and the Mediterranean with the works of Jason deCaires Taylor. Immersed at a distance ranging from 84 to 132 metres from the shore and a depth of 3 to 5 metres, the sculptures are accessible to the greatest number of divers equipped simply with a mask and a snorkel.

Access is free and protected by a ban on ships anchoring.

Snow sports enthusiasts

Lovers of the sport will not be disappointed! Enjoy a unique and sensational experience alone or with friends and share your emotions!

Ideal spot for kitesurfers and windsurfers

The Palm-Beach at the Pointe Croisette is the ideal spot for wave and roller enthusiasts, giving truly spectacular sessions, a must for surfing fans. The scenery is magnificent, between the Lérins Islands with the Fort Vauban on Sainte-Marguerite Island facing it, the Palm-Beach and the small bay of Moure-Rouge. Passing a few rocks (bring your slippers), access is not very complicated but requires a good level of practice in order to be able to leave the area quickly.
