Just along the coast, a short train journey away from Nice you’ll find Cannes;

famous for its film festival, it has two major ports and lots of high-end shops and boutiques, restaurants and hotels. It’s a little on the pretentious side but I still like it. A hot spot for celebs and a trendy holiday location, you can find lots to do here.

Things to do?


It’s going to be very hard to stay in Cannes, even for a day, and not do any shopping. The main shopping street is worth a walk and there are some nice independent stores and boutiques.

Chateau de la Castre

This is actually a museum but it’s also beautiful to just walk around and see the views from the top of Le Suquet Hill.

Port &Croisette walking

Another place another port, new boats and a long promenade between each port. Go and check out which boats are berthed in Cannes while you’re there.

Where to stay?

A reasonable priced contemporary Provencal style 3* hotel which is in an ancient building. It is nice to stay somewhere slightly out of all the business and away from the port if you work on boats.

A 5* stunning, luxurious hotel there’s no mistaking that the hefty pricing is actually worth it if you have that money spare.

A fun boutique hotel nestled away behind the main streets, some of the rooms have mirrors as walls. It’s an easy go to options that isn’t too expensive and you can get breakfast included with most deals.


Cannes has a very good nightlife, especially over the summertime when all the beach bars act as day clubs and roll into the night. Here are a few hot spots to visit for a good night out.


Very popular over the film festival, this club has a nice outside space with its lavish garden, sofas and palm trees. Drinks are expensive but it’s a good night out with good music, which means lots of dancing!


A very big swanky club with different areas to spend your night, I know I get bored and move around a lot rather then stay in one room when I’m out. There’s a covered terrace, multiple VIP rooms and a lounge bar.

There are also lots of bars in Cannes, if that’s your thing. I find that in France bars can be as fun as clubs; often everyone will end up dancing on the tables!

Good large gym that offers a 3 days free pass!

Offering different types of yoga classes in both English and French, the centre is open 6 days a week so you should be able to find the perfect session for you.

Hair and beauty


As spoken about in Antibes, I would again advise Dessange as a good option. I have had a couple of bad experiences in Cannes going to independent places.
