|About these ratings|
One of the main reasons to take a French Riviera vacation is to enjoy the beach. Some resorts stake out some private sand for their patrons, but you can also visit several beaches for free even if you're not staying at a seaside resort. Both the Plage du Ponteil and Plage de la Salis are very popular (read: very crowded) shorelines. From Old Town, you'll simply veer toward Port Vauban.
For a little more seclusion -- but you'll get pebbles rather than sand -- head south to Cap d'Antibes. For a party atmosphere, you can visit the beaches in Juan-les-Pins.
