|About these ratings|
Ahh, the French Riviera sun, the rolling Mediterranean waves and the legendary blue chairs. One of the main events to a Nice vacation is the beach lounging. However, there are some things to note. First, about 15 private (and costly) beaches break up the public beaches, so be prepared to shell out several euros for your beach time. You should also note that the private beaches don't allow you to bring in your own food and drink; you'll have to purchase refreshments from the adjoining (and expensive) restaurants. And they also charge for lounge chairs and even towels.
The public beaches are free, but they don't have any restroom facilities or lounge chairs, which are almost a necessity against the pebbly ground. And speaking of the rocky sand, some travelers recommend wearing water shoes — even in the water — since the ground is so uncompromising.
