About Cannes:

Visit the millionaires’ playground.
Cannes still treats visitors to much of the glitz and glamour of its 50s heyday. Endless sandy beaches, luxurious hotels, and palatial villas all sit under deep blue Mediterranean skies. While chic boutiques, smart shops and excellent restaurants are just a stroll away down La Croisette promenard. There’s culture too at the Castre Museum. And a taste of paradise a short boat ride away on St Marguerite Island – home to the Man in the Iron Mask.

What to do in Cannes:

La Croisette:

Cannes’ palm tree dotted main promenade runs alongside 12km of golden, sandy beaches. And there’s a great selection of shops, boutiques and restaurants to keep you entertained.
