While berthed in the Port of Nice, take a stroll to the town’s small beaches Bains Militaires, Coco Beach, and in between Plage de la Réserve, just visible bottom right in this photo.
The latter is a small pebble beach with views over the Cap de Nice – a great place to enjoy an early morning coffee and enjoy a slice of Niçoise life (locals come for an early morning swim from the tiny beach) as the yachts and boats (and Corsica ferries) come and go.
Recommended – Make reservations for dinner at the iconic Le Plongeoir which hovers on the coastline's most famous pillar of rock. The unique setting first opened as a restaurant in the late 19th century, and has had many faces, including a diving platform. Today the diving boards remain as a symbol of its heritage, while the restaurant gives this stunning setting a new lease of life.
