All Eyes on Cannes – the Film Festival Arrives for its 71st Year

The biggest event in film is returning for its 71st year in the beautiful South of France. For two weeks, Hollywood will take short-term residence along the French Riviera as a number of original films compete for numerous awards such as the prestigious Palme D’Or, Un Certain Regard, Best Actor and Best Actress at the Cannes Film Festival (Festival de Cannes en Français).

Having been comparable to “two weeks at the Oscars” the Cannes Film Festival is entrenched in glitz and glamour, with previous celebrity attendees being models, actors and music artists alike, such as Rihanna, Nicole Kidman, Bella Hadid, David Beckham and Jessica Chastain. With Cate Blanchett heading up the panel as President of the Competition Jury, this year’s Film Festival promises to be as magical as the last.

Films to watch out for this year include the Spanish psychological thriller Everybody Knows directed by Asghar Farhadi, which will open the Festival. Some of the other most anticipated films being featured include Under the Silver Lake, BlacKkKlansman, Girls of the Sun, Fahrenheit 451 and The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, the Festival’s closing film.

Experience Cannes in its full glory during the 71st Annual Film Festival; chartering a luxury yacht to witness this celebrated event is the ultimate experience. Charter for events, day charters or week-long rentals and enjoy the opulence of the French Riviera in true style. Enquire today with Boatbookings to find out more!

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.
