Introduction

3,5 km de beach...
Cagnes-sur-Mer coastline covers  3,5 kilometres of long pebbled beach. It is these pebbles that give the Mediterranean Sea its deep shade of blue.
The water temperature is so mild, that it is possible to bathe in the sea all year round !
The six new private beaches offer the additional high-quality services : restaurants, sun-bed rental, parasols...
The Cros-de-Cagnes is, first of all, a recreational seaside resort offering relaxation, beach activities, water sports (to practice all year round) and a wide range of welcoming local shops and restaurants.



Access
A8 highway + exits 47/48 CAGNES-SUR-MER + Direction "Bord de mer".
A hint : you can leave your car in one of the car parks in the town centre or by the sea and use the free shuttle-bus "Navette de la Plage", n°45, 10am to 7pm, every day, during July and August.

Fishing village and coastal traditions
Originally an artisan fishing village, Cros-de-Cagnes evolved into a modern seaside resort dedicated to sea-lovers. Even though today water-based recreation is its primary attraction, the fishing tradition is still alive. 
The modernity mixes up with tradition around the picturesque fishing port, the yellow ochre couloured chapel, the "pointu" boats, along the streets named after flowers and St Pierre's square with its "boules" players. 

The "Promenade de la Plage"
The road along the seashore has been completely renovated and the new "Promenade de la Plage" has been a total success - a place to discover and enjoy.


The site for events
The "Promenade de la Plage" becomes the theatre for many  events all year round such as  "Dimanches Malins" on sundays in springtime, "Fête de la St Pierre" and "Promenade en Fête"  in summer, which attract thousands of people to the seafront pedestrian area, providing fun and amusement for all !
