Côte d’Azur: The beaches of the French Riviera

The expression « Côte d’Azur«  was coined by the author Stéphen Liégeard to describe the east coast of the French Mediterranean.

Heaven on earth !

From Menton to Sr Tropez, French Riviera offers beautiful blue shores lined with its famous pebbles or by fine, golden sand.
Make the most out of your holidays and discover some of the most beautiful beaches from Southern France. Whether you prefer fine sand or pebbles, French Riviera has beautiful blue shores to offer in Nice, St Laurent du Var, Cagnes sur mer, Villeneuve-loubet, Antibes, Juan Les Pins, Cannes, Menton or Monaco. During high or low season you will be amazed by the small coves of Cap d’Ail,  Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, Théoule-sur-Mer, or Agay… Not to forget the islands of Lérins in the Baie de Cannes and the Porquerolles on the Var.

And if you’re feeling romantic, consider taking a tour by the « Riviera dei Riori » in Arma di Taggia, or Ospedaletti in Italy, two beautiful destinations we highly recommend.
