PLAGE L’ANNEX, private beach, Cannes, Côte d’Azur/ French Riviera
About the beach:
Situated opposite the legendary Carlton hotel on the Boulevard de la Croisette in Cannes, L’Annex private beach is an upmarket establishment offering a sleek and stylish base from which to enjoy the French Mediterranean. The décor blends wood, stainless steel and glass, and creates a modern, relaxing vibe. Visitors can unwind on the shady terrace, or indulge in one of the giant cocktails or fruit platters. The beach restaurant always has a tempting array of the Côte d’Azur’s freshest seafood to choose from, and diners can enjoy the experience of eating with their feet in the sand.
Beach beds/ umbrellas:
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.
