What can i say, amazing torqouise water, beatiful views and clean beaches. The location on the promenade des englais is also a bonus as everything seems to meld together. Would reccomend a trip to the top of the hill for the best view of nice

I have this same photo, what a beautiful view of the ocean and town. Lots of steps but worth the hike.

You had to pay to rent a chair on the beach, but the waiters came right to you and you had easy access to the water. If you want to swim you do need to use the rope or shimmy down the steep hill into the water. They had the Blonde of Saint Tropez beer which was really tasty, they... More

We didn't pay the 20 euros but instead walked round the sun loungers and joined the locals on what is called Plage Publique des bains de la Police right on the curve before the port. It's stoney and hard to walk on, but the Promenade des Anglais is all like that. Plenty of local people were sunbathing on towels, and... More

It seems all the private beaches charge 20 euros for a lounger and 5 for a parasol and this place was no different. That said the part of the bay was quiet and pretty, the loungers were good and the staff friendly. If you want to save some money take your food in a bag and hop over the fence... More

We spent a day here recently at this beach club and loved it. The staff were polite and unobtrusive. The facilities are excellent and everything is on hand. We had lunch which was a beautiful sea bass. The waiter offered to fillet it for us which he did very well. Perfect wine list. Why not five stars? The beds are... More

I had been told of the great views of Nice from here but dreaded climbing the hill to get there. I was delighted to find that a lift has been ingeniously installed in the old well shaft ! Well worth a visit

The setting is absolutely stunning - on the beach below the castle. Our food and wine were excellent. The service was fine. We were outdoors and very comfortable.

Spent a day here recently.. The menu had nothing on it that stood out. I ended up going for a spicy penne pasta that was so full of raw garlic it was inedible.. Service was lacking and hard to believe what it would be like if they were in the middle of summer as there was only half the beach... More

Very nice place, expensive as you'd imagine but a great spot. I'd prefer the waiters to come and ask if I need anything more often rather than me call them over. Food and drink all fantastic
