We really enjoyed the Plage Les Pirates beach. Pay a small fee, but they have a nice beach with bar, bring your drinks to you -- the restaurant there is pretty good too, and they have showers afterwards.

From there, just head down the main drag along the beach -- lots of little shops and things to buy.

Go to the disco where Angela of Loft Story fame works and tell her you are sorry she lost. Then get her autograph.

Not sure what the above response is supposed to mean. Anyway, the area does have very good beaches, lots of good bars and things to do - enjoy the sun.

I've heard (but not experienced) that Juan les pins and Antibes are better places to party than Nice. You can even see a Picasso museum in a 12th century castle, and a 16th century fort where Napoleon was once a reluctant resident

Juan-les-Pins ("John of the Pines") is the suburb of Antibes. It seems to be the place to skindive and/or water ski. Seeing that you will hve missed the big jazz festival in July, maybe that is a good thing...big crowds, etc.?
Since you will be so near to Antibes and if you are into museums, don't miss the Picasso Museum. For good top-notch food in JLP, try out the Hotel Juana at restaurant La Terrasse.

Dear Bruce;
you might want to consider 2 easy day trips 1) take the train to Monte Carlo; about 30-45 min. and 2) vist Saint Paul de Vance it's a really beautiful town in the hills take the train to Nice and then take a cab; about 15 minutes.For a real treat have lunch at the famous restaurant at La Colombe d' Or ;it has a fomous art collection reservations are a must tel33(0)93 32 80 02 request a table under the fig trees and have one of the best meals of your life about $100 for 2 including wine.
I do not know where you are staying; but I stayed at hotel des Mimosas for about $100 charming ;small; nice pool I was in room #18 on the 1st floor; it's about a 20 minute walk into town. Nothing glamorous; but it had a nice Great Gatsby vibe.
Viva La France
