C BEACH, private beach, Cannes, Côte d’Azur/ French Riviera
About the beach:
C Beach is a private beach club situated in the heart of the ‘Croisette’ in the famous Riviera resort of Cannes. Its prime location, mere minutes away from the Palais des Festivals, means that it is an extremely popular place for locals and tourists to come in the summer months to bask in the South of France sunshine and enjoy the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean. Open every day from March to October, the beach restaurant serves gourmet French food with influences from around the world. It is open daily for lunch, and dinner is also served during the ‘Festival d’Art Pyrotechnique’, allowing visitors the chance to enjoy the unparalleled fireworks displays whilst dining with their toes in the sand. C Beach can be privatised for events, and it is able to cater for 50 to 200 people on the terrace (which is covered and heated outside of the season). For larger events, a structure can be erected on the sand that can host up to 700 guests.

Cannes is the glitz and glamour capital of the French Riviera. For years, wealthy, beautiful people have been flocking here in their masses, bringing their impressive yachts and bulging wallets with them. As a result, Cannes now has a selection of some of the finest fashion boutiques, and no visit here would be complete without a browse through the designer stores that line ‘La Croisette’. A walk around the water’s edge of the old port and Port Pierre Canto will bestow to the visitor a remarkable selection of ostentatious boats that have to be seen to be believed.
A wander up through the winding Rue Saint Antoine leads into the charming ‘Suquet’ area of the town. Here, in the old quarter, visitors will be able to choose from a wealth of delightful restaurants, squeezed in amongst the narrow cobbled streets. The clock tower and church at the top of the hill overlook the town and the inviting beaches in the bay of Cannes. At the bottom of the Suquet is the Marché Forville, which offers a huge array of some of the freshest and best food on the Riviera.
A trip to the Lérins islands, just off the Cannes coastline, is a must-do for visitors to the town. The closest, Ile St Marguerite, is a mere 15 minute boat ride from the mainland, and boasts some fantastic walking tracks where rare plants and migratory birds can be spotted. The island owns the legendary story of the Man in the Iron Mask, who was imprisoned in the old fort for 11 years. The Ile Saint Honorat is a short hop over from St Marguerite, and is home to a monastery and a series of little chapels, steeped in years of history. Ferries to the islands depart once an hour from Cannes during the summer.
One of the other great opportunities available in Cannes is to rent a boat for a day and tour the beautiful coastline.
