French Riviera 3 Day Itinerary

Day 1 – Juan Les Pins to Santo Stefano Al Mare

Welcoming you on board at 12 noon, your crew will be ready to get you settled in on your yacht. Onc will serve you a delightful lunch on deck as you depart from Juan Les Pins. Cruise towards Roquebrune Cap Martin, and take in the stunning natural beauty of the Medieval Castle and mountains in the distance.

Moor in the bay and take the chance to dive into the stunning blue waters of this natural inlet, or perhaps relax on the foredeck of your yacht as you soak up the afternoon sun, before cruising to Santo Stefano Al Mare. Take the time to freshen up and have a relaxed drink on your aft deck before heading to Aigua Beach and Restaurant for dinner; enjoy some incredible Italian cuisine and stroll the beautiful promenade at dusk.

Day 2 – Santo Stefano Al Mare to St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat

Enjoying a leisurely breakfast on board, leave Italy behind and head back towards France. St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat is your next stop, but first, stop along the way to take a dip and try out the water toys on board! For lunch, your chef on board will have prepared a delicious meal for you to enjoy before you arrive at St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat.

Take in the views of Beaulieu-sur-Mer and Eze, mooring near Paloma Beach; head onto land and settle in for the afternoon at Paloma Beach with some cocktails before swimming in the sparkling waters.

Day 3 – Cap Ferrat to Billionaire’s Bay, disembark Juan les Pins

Wake up to a lovely breakfast on board, as you relax whilst cruising towards Billionaire’s Bay for a swim. Head back to Juan les Pins; sadly this is where you must disembark at midday after your incredible charter! Make sure to contact Boatbookings in future and leave us a review on social media; we love to see your pictures.

The 5 Best Beach Clubs on the French Riviera

The French Riviera is one of the most popular places to charter a yacht in the Med, with its quaint villages and stunning bays, you can enjoy a varied trip from Monaco to St Tropez! Travelling along the coast, you will find yourself in a new surrounding each day and what better way to mix up your charter by spending a long lazy lunch in one of the best beach restaurants along the coast. Hire a yacht for the day from Cannes, St Tropez or any of our French Riviera destinations to access the beach clubs in true style.

Here, we choose our favourite 5 beach clubs in the South of France:

  1. Eden Plage Mala – located just before Cap d’Ail on the way towards Monaco. Accessible only by boat or two mysterious winding paths it’s the perfect retreat if you’re looking to escape the crowds. Stunning booths under beautiful wooden canopies provide shade and giving a sense of seclusion, whilst the bright colours around give the whole club an energised feel. Fresh fish and lobster every day, combined with the option of either a Swedish or Japanese massage you’ll leave feeling like a new person! Live bands on the weekends mean Eden Plage Mala even offers something for the party-minded.
  2. Paloma Beach. A favourite of the Boatbookings team, Paloma Beach is situated in the beautiful bay of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat. The dramatic cliff faces create a secluded place to enjoy a relaxing extended lunch and enjoy the crystal clear waters. Simplicity and authenticity is the key here, with fish being the centre of attention, whether it be a whole catch of the day to share or beautifully contemporary seafood dishes there’s something on this menu for every taste.

    3. La Guerite. One of our absolute favourite restaurants which we recently visited on Ile Marguerite, just off Cannes. La Guérite offers a beautiful setting where politics, stress and troubles are left behind! La Guerite offers marvellous views of Cannes in a peaceful location on an island where the noise of modern transport is a distant memory.  The glorious light underneath the seaweed inspired canopy will put you in a calm and serene spirit whilst you dine on some of the best food on the coast.

    4. Club 55 is an institution in St Tropez; founded in 1955 by a film crew – hence the name, her white sands were once frequented by Brigitte Bardot. Today hundreds of yachties flock here every summer to enjoy wonderful Mediterranean seafood, market fresh platters and long sunny afternoons at this legendary beach club.

A Day in the Life of an Intern, Part VI

Following A Day in the Life of an Intern Part V, Part VI will give you an account of what the interns have been getting up to this summer, including a taste of the charterer life with a day on board REHAB, one of our favourite boats on the French Riviera. After a buzzing summer here at Boatbookings.com we took a day out to get a feel of what our clients get when they charter with us for a day.

RehabCruising

We began in Antibes with a delicious continental breakfast prepared for our arrival by wonderful hostess, Kirsten. We headed west towards Cannes and the famous Îles de Lérins, a popular destination for motor and sailboats alike. With crystal blue waters and panoramic views of the coast they are the perfect spot to stop for a refreshing swim, in our case a race and lots of splashing!

After that it was time to experience the joys of water toys! We headed east, past Antibes to the stunning and historic village of Èze where we stopped, unloaded everything REHAB has to offer such as the speedy hydrojet tender, water skis, wakeboard and donuts. Competitive spirit soon emerged in order to discover who’d be the best water skier and who would stay in the donut the longest, Micheal epitomises the phrase ‘can-do captain’ and ensured everyone had the best time and got to experience the thrills that water toys have to offer!

SONY DSC

Lunch was at Paloma Beach Club, which we cannot recommend highly enough! The views of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat are incredible with the dramatic imposing sheer cliff faces and array of super yachts keep you entertained whilst you await the delicious food. We dined on light and refreshing fresh fish dishes that left everyone more than satisfied, the service was impeccable and they have a fantastic range of French wines for every palate.

Heading back along choppy waters we all enjoyed a drink and the wind in our hair as we flew along the coast towards Villefranche, another yachting hotspot where the coast is dotted with the beautiful homes of the rich and famous. We returned to Antibes a group of well and truly satisfied customers.

After experiencing a day on REHAB it’s very clear why she’s one of the most popular yachts on the French Riviera this summer. We cannot praise the crew enough, they are friendly, attentive and guarantee that you’ll have the best time. The boat is comfortable and spacious even with 12 people on board and her performance provides a truly exhilarating experience. With dates still available this September, she’s a brilliant value opportunity not to be missed. Enquire now!
