Oh, La, La! The French Riviera

Glamorous and splendid as it could be, this iconic spot for superyacht lovers (a.k.a. Côte d’Azur) became a popular tourist destination since the 18th century.

A gorgeous scenery, world-class cuisine and plenty of cultural options are some of the reasons why The French Riviera is still at the top list. With more than 30 harbours and thousands of restaurants offering the most exclusive fine dining experiences, it’s a yes or yes during a yachting adventure across the Mediterranean. This unique coastline is ideal to explore its hidden coves and secluded beaches along the way. Home to the iconic Monte Carlo Casino, the renowned Cannes Film Festival and the Monaco F1 Grand Prix, it gathers all the best plans to do while yachting around.

Saint Tropez

The first stop is at Saint Tropez. With its trendy clubs, beautiful beaches and luxury boutiques, it invites to dock the yacht at the Vieux Port or Port Grimaud and have a walk. You can visit the Musée de l’Annonciade, a renowned museum dedicated to modern art, which displays an impressive collection by artists such as Matisse, Signac, and Bonnard, proving its historical significance as an art colony. When the night comes, it’s time to dance at Les Caves du Roy, one of the most famous nightclubs in the region.

The Pampelonne Beach is another great option to spice things up a bit (at any time of the day), located just a few kilometres from the centre. This long, sandy beach hosts trendy beach clubs such as Club 55 or Nikki Beach. Its fame is not only related to its natural beauty, but to the cinema. The first Hollywood production shot there was “And God Created Woman”, directed by Roger Vadim (1956) and starred by Brigitte Bardot, who became a world-wide star along with the destination.

Cannes

Following up, the next stop is at the one and only, Cannes. You can dock the yacht at the harbour and take a stroll along Croisette Boulevard to enjoy the local culture and flavours. And, if you’re on the “Red Carpet” kind of mood, a visit to the convention centre “Palais des Festivals et des Congrès” is a must. There, the Cannes Film Festival, the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity and the NRJ Music Award are celebrated yearly, among other legendary events.

Antibes

We continue our journey in Antibes, a charming town that boasts stunning beaches, a vibrant art scene, and a bustling local market, ideal to anchor your yacht in the bay and explore the quaint streets of this picturesque area.

Monaco, via Nice

And we finish the adventure in Monaco (Nice is also an interesting stop if you have more than a week available, and many, many more in between ports, like the Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild and its magnificent gardens).

If you’re travelling during May, the Monaco Grand Prix is an unmissable event. Watching the race from the yacht is simply sublime. If you’re a superyacht lover, you can also stop and say hi at the Monaco Yacht Club, located in the harbour. At a walking distance, there’s the Prince’s Palace and the Monte Carlo Casino, one of the most famous casinos in the world. For the most exquisite palates, we recommend dining at Le Louis XV – Alain Ducasse. Located at the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo, this three-star Michelin restaurant is one of the most prestigious dining experiences in Monaco.
