Activities in Nice
The Promenade des Anglais and the beaches – close to the hotel
The first winter tourists came here for the nice climate and not so much the sea. With 300 days of sunshine a year, relaxation or physical activity by the sea didn’t become a major point of attraction for the city until later. Today, Nice is proud to have 20 public beaches and 15 private beaches spread across 7 km right in the city.
Our bathing waters meet the excellent standards of the European norms, while the Famille Plus label celebrates the provisions of supervised play areas for children and the petanque grounds for their parents. Each beach is unique in its own way, not a divergence from the landscape but a different way of seeing it. Most of them offer a range of different varied services. With a special welcome and price reductions available, we have a special partnership with “Le Galet”, a beach that is sure to become your new favourite place!
If you love an adrenaline rush, you won’t have to look far to find something to satisfy you. Parasailing, fly-fishing, stand-up paddling, water skiing, underwater diving and sea kayaking along the coast are just some of the many possibilities of exploring Nice's maritime environment. If you’re not into water sports but still like to be active, the Roller Station with its bikes, skateboards and more for hire will be up your street, while the Piscine Jean Médecin swimming pool is perfect if you prefer swimming laps.
Being passionate about our city and region, we are naturally happy to share with you our recommendations for trips in the backcountry or along the Côte d’Azur, where you can explore majestic landscapes, unique gardens, fascinating museums and traditional restaurants. Our well-priced hotel at the centre of Nice is the perfect base for your sweet escapes.
