One can stroll along the Promenade de la Croisette which leads to the shoreline, where posh hotels try to jostle their position and accommodate many high-end travelers. Upscale shops, restaurants, and glamorous architecture create an iconic scene. The Cannes annual film festival also takes place here bringing celebrities, actors, and filmmakers, transforming the boulevard into a playground of the world’s rich and famous.

Renting a boat in Cannes will allow you to spend a day or more exploring the waters of the Riviera that extend all the way to Antibes. Highly famous with social & elite class tourists during the summer months, you can be one of the many to enjoy a cruise right in the lap of luxury. Being home to flashpoints like Monaco, Nice, Antibes and St Tropez, a boat tour in Cannes renders an awesome chance to go from one enthralling port to the other. For example, if we consider Antibes only, it is a town that is divided into multiple distinguished parts and known for its popular festivals and nightlife gambling along with terrific beaches for winding down.
From the mainland to the Lérins islands you can visit Ile Sainte-Marguerite, a natural oasis with crystal-clear waters only 20 minutes away from Cannes. If you are the one who is a fan of grabbing a fine wine while walking all the way down to natural parks, destinations like Monaco, Nice and Saint-Tropez simply cannot be missed at all. As you approach the Gulf of Saint-Tropez, blue-green oceans and powder-white sands offer a path to the pastel exteriors of Saint-Tropez and the moving slopes of the Provence. Steering your boat away from the French Riviera, The Golden Isles of Hyeres are beautiful gems you can explore with sandy beaches that are perfect for swimming and snorkeling. The Hyeres islands feature hidden creeks, secluded coves, intimate beaches, and sheer cliffs that cannot be missed when approaching Toulon in the South of France. Porquerolles is the largest of the islands, restricted for vehicular use since it is part of the Port Cros National Park which has a diversity of aquatic wildlife. These beautiful islands are best visited on a two-day or three-day trip from Cannes.
Skimming toward the west still, you'll discover the grape plantations of ideal Cassis, the glasslike, fjord-like Calanques, and the antiquated city of Marseille. If you prefer to rent a boat for the day in Cannes, Plage de la Bocca, Palm Beach, and Plage-du Midi are well-loved beaches frequented with visitors by the coastline. There's something for everybody on the Riviera. Some charterers don't really focus such a huge amount on the breathtaking party scene, yet love the calm islands, the middle age slope towns, the set of experiences, and the fantastic craftsmanship exhibition halls.
