10 private beaches to try in Nice and the French Riviera

Summer is in full swing on the French Riviera, and it’s the perfect time to go for a dip in the sea. But for those who are looking for more comfort and want to enjoy a good plate of pasta and fruit while lying on the deckchair, there is nothing better than a good private beach. There is clearly no shortage of them on the French Riviera. The region is full of private beaches that offer a multitude of services to meet your needs.

I have therefore prepared a non-exhaustive list of 10 private beaches (the most famous ones) that you must try on the French Riviera:

1. La Petite Plage – Juan les pins

Among all the private beaches on the French Riviera, we start the TOP 10 with THE private beach located more precisely in Golfe Juan.
