  • The beach is beautiful and Nice, but I do not recommend it in high season. Only if you stay in a hotel that is on the shore of the sea and offering allowing you to be facing the sea but not on the beach as such. The sand is full of chairs of way very disorderly and the people throw garbage by all sides.
