Glamour, glamour, glamour. Okay, there is plenty more to Nice than all that glitz, but the French Riviera’s flamboyance is one of its great pulls, right? Nobody goes to Nice to be brought back to earth, after all.
That mystique extends to the beaches of Nice. Shimmering seas, seemingly endless pebble beaches, incredible restaurants and more cocktails than any human being could possibly handle await, wrapped up in opulence that makes Nice a destination unlike any other. This is the top table of European coastal tourism; make no mistake about that.
Sifting through the good and the great of Nice's beaches is no easy task. Despite the attention given to the luxury above, there remains something for everyone on these beaches. Some even offer that rarest of Riviera pulls; sand. Pebbles are king here, but those pebbles aren’t the only option.
Behind all of these beaches lies one of the most fascinating and fantastic cities in Europe. Beach season in Nice generally runs from April to October, when the beautiful people descend upon Nice la Belle in search of excitement and tranquillity in equal measure. These are the best of the best when it comes to beaches in Nice.
