With so many celebrated activities, choosing our five favourites wasn’t easy. However, one thing’s for certain; whether you’re into hiking, water sports or cocktails, the Côte d’Azur never disappoints.
Firework Frenzy in Cannes
World famous, world renowned, world class. Cannes has so much to offer throughout the summer months and is a hotspot on the French Riviera that’s not to be missed. Since 1967 the skies above the Côte d’Azur have been illuminated by the Fireworks Festival which you’ll have prime position for, anchored in the Bay of Cannes.
Saint Tropez Bars and Beach Clubs
Just a tranquil cruise down the coast you’ll find the bustling town of Saint Tropez, one of the most desirable pitstops in the Mediterranean. The beach clubs found in Saint Tropez are quite rightly held in the highest regard, from Club 55 to Nikki Beach there’s any number of bars for a cheeky tipple.
Paddleboarding in the Porquerolles
The peaceful Porquerolles are the drop of paradise in the constant hum of Riviera life and provide a great opportunity for trying out your yacht’s water sports. If water skis and wakeboards are a little too on the wild side, a spot of paddleboard yoga is not only incredibly healthy but the pictures will be a fantastic addition to your Instagram…
Take a Trip to Les Iles de Lerins
Home to a monastery since the fifth century, these islands are rich with history. Teeming with wildlife, there’s an abundance of flora and fauna to explore from your first steps ashore. Surrounded by turquoise water and blessed with an incredible view back to the mainland, the Iles de Lerins are in a class of their own.
Formula 1, fast cars and the casino all go hand in hand in Monaco, but the principality’s fine dining is less publicised. For traditional European delights, the Café de Paris is a must see. If you fancy something more exotic, the very best Japanese cuisine on the Riviera can be sampled at Nobu after a drink or two in Buddha Bar.
There are many other highlights to be found in this area, as shown in our French Riviera Itinerary. To request a yacht in this stunning location, don’t hesitate to contact us and we’ll help you plan your charter.
