LE COLOMBIER AND HÉLIOS, private beaches, Juan les Pins, French Riviera
About the beaches
Le Colombier and Hélios are the two private beaches that are linked to the luxurious Hélios hotel. Both of them share the same stretch of white sandy Côte d’Azur coastline, the gorgeous views of the Lérins islands and the Esterel mountains, and the wonderful sense of relaxation, but each has its own distinct style. For those looking for a family friendly day out, Le Colombier beach offers a laidback, child-friendly atmosphere. Its reasonably priced restaurant serves up an appetising range of local and international dishes that will suit younger palates. For the more sophisticated beachgoer, Hélios beach provides a cool, chic feel, with an excellent gourmet restaurant, where diners will be seduced by the culinary delights on the menu. Both beaches are supervised by a lifeguard, and are open from April to September. There is a lounge bar serving cocktails, which is open from 6.30pm for sunset.
