What we recommend doing in Cannes

The French Riviera is one of the most popular places to go in the summer because it has some of the wildest parties, the best beach club, and warm, clear water. We made an A list of the best places to stay in the South of France because there are so many options, including some of the best hotels in the world, large villa estates, and some of the best superyachts.

Visit La Croisette

If you want to meet people who spend a lot of money, go to La Croisette. It is one of the most famous streets in France. It is a mile long and has a lot of fancy shops that are shaded by tall palm trees. This area connects the city to the beachfront, and it also has some of the best hotels and a number of casinos where people can try their luck.

Cannes Yachting Festival

Thought that the film festival was the only important event in the area? Think again. Every September, the Cannes Yachting Festival takes over the whole harbor. This is where the richest people in the world show off their biggest boats. But if you’re happy to just look at the end goal from afar, you can easily spend an afternoon at Vieux Port and Port Pierre Canto looking at the best yachts. You’ll also find many that are for sale or that you can rent.

Visit the Marche Forvillé

You can try some of the local food at Marché Forville, which is close to the boardwalk on La Croisette. Both people who live in and visit Cannes come here to try to get the best deal on their goods. If you go in the morning, you’ll get the freshest food for breakfast, but you should also try the golden peaches and sun-dried tomatoes that are grown nearby. Want to make your relationship more interesting? Like in the movies, picking up a colorful bouquet of flowers is a great idea.

Wonder Le Suquet

The Old Town neighborhood of Le Suquet is where Cannes’s first fishing village stood. It is on a charming slope above the bay, where the bay is now. It’s the kind of place where you might only plan to stay for a few hours but end up staying all day because every cobblestone corner and winding staircase is full of old-world charm. Most of the area is pedestrian-only, which makes wandering around fun, but we recommend starting with the Eglise du Suquet church and the Tour du Mont watchtower. From the top, you can see stunning views of the bay and the hills, which are filled with some of the most expensive villas in the world.
