Opera Plage Beach Club, Nice

Most reasonably priced beach-restaurant option, great for families

One of the oldest private beaches in Nice, and one of the cheapest, this is a family beach with friendly staff and a traditional restaurant.

A modern beach club with a long history, it has been situated on the Promenade des Anglais since 1889. It sits directly in front of the building that is the 'Opera de Nice', the Opera House.

They are open daily from 09:00 until 20:00 and from June through the summer months they open until midnight on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Worth knowing

This is a family run business and from generation to generation, the Maiffret family has made this place a popular address on the French Riviera.

The Restaurant

The restaurant is open daily for lunch. From mid June the restaurant opens every evening from Tuesday to Saturday, where you can eat while enjoying the orchestras or the resident DJ. The staff here speak French, English, Italian, Russian and German. The menu is also in Braille.

  • "What an amazing place for a drink by the sea! Make sure to stop bye for some chillaxing while enjoying the beauty of Nice! Recommended!" - Trip Advisor
  • "My boyfriend and I both enjoyed our lunch, and you certainly can't beat the view!" - Trip Advisor
  • "A HUGE beach with capacity for big parties, that can also have their own private area so as not to disturb the other tables, its well set up, a nice regional menu, lovely wines and all priced very competitively. With a car park opposite and vieux Nice just yards away, its a great spot to escape to." - Trip Advisor
