This long stretch of pebble beach in Nice runs along the Baie des Anges and is backed by the Promenade des Anglais.
The long pebble beach stretches for around seven kilometres and is a mixture of private and public sections. The private sections are leased to beach clubs and restaurants where, as well as buying food and drinks, you can rent sun loungers and parasols for some serious sunbathing.
About half of the beach is public and free of charge, and you will find that most sections are equipped with toilets and showers. There are also a couple of underground storage rooms (accessible from the Promenade) where you can hire a secure locker.
Plage Carras at the far end of the promenade, close to Nice Cote d'Azur airport, is well-equipped for handicapped swimmers - there is a designated area where lifeguards will help people in and out of the water using specially adapted beach buggies. The western end of the beach (closest to the airport) seems to be quieter and more popular with children and locals, whereas the closer you get to the centre of town the more lively and touristy it gets.
