Nice

The Outdoors

Nice's beaches extend all along the Baie des Anges, backed full length by the Promenade des Anglais. Public stretches alternate with posh private beaches that have restaurants—and bar service, mattresses and parasols, waterskiing, parasailing, windsurfing, and jet-skiing. The general public can access the private beaches; mattresses cost on average €20 per, and you're expected to buy any food or drink from the restaurant that controls the beach.
