Fodor's Expert Review Vieux Port

Cannes Marina/Pier

Sparkling at the foot of Le Suquet, this narrow, well-protected port harbors a fascinating lineup of luxury yachts and slick little bateaux de plaisance (pleasure boats) that creak and bob beside weathered-blue fishing barques. From the east corner, off La Pantiéro at Quai Laubeuf (which just had a €21 million renovated sea wall with a panoramic promenade and heliport), you can catch a cruise to the Îles de Lérins. The port, as well as Quai St-Pierre (which runs alongside it and hosts a plethora of restaurants), has emerged from its tattered and tired midlife crisis to become a smartly dressed, more energized version of its former self.
