PLAGE BELLES RIVES, private beach, Juan les Pins, French Riviera
About the beach
This private beach has a wonderfully nostalgic feel to it, exuding classic Riviera chic and understated elegance. It is part of the luxurious Hotel Belles Rives which was the former home of the famous author Scott Fitzgerald and his wife Zelda. The couple were glamorous icons of the jazz area of the 1920s and 1930s, and Juan les Pins was famously a European hub for this genre of music. The beach has retained its vintage feel, and is a magnificent part of the Côte d’Azur coastline to sit and relax next to the crystal clear waters. The sun loungers and deck chairs are positioned on a series of terraces by the water’s edge, and they enjoy stunning views out to the bay. There is a pier where the water sports centre is located, offering a full range of nautical activities. It is also possible to have massages and partake in fitness classes. Visitors can eat at the Restaurant ‘Plages Belles Rives’, which serves a delicious array of regional seafood plates and other dishes. There is also a snack bar called ‘Les Cabines’ which serves light bites and drinks in a very relaxed beachfront setting. The beach bar is a lovely place to enjoy a few sundowners, and on Thursdays during the summer months it hosts themed beach parties.
