Bambou Beach


Bambou Plage


Find Beach Hotels in Nice
Low Price Guarantee!


Between Fabron and Lenval public beach, Bambou Beach is a private beach-restaurant. It's a tranquil option but relatively pricey considering its distance from central Nice. Note that this is a lunch only restaurant. There's no evening meal or nightlife here. See more about private beaches and beach-restaurants and see my review.


There are two good budget options near Bambou Beach: Aparthotel Adagio towards the west and an Etap hotel nearby on ave de la Californie.

Aparthotel Adagio ****


Bambou Plage is right across from Lenval Hospital and at the Lenval/Promenade bus stop. You'll find buses 8, 11, 52, 59, 60, 70, 94, 98, 200, 230, 400, 500.

Sometimes you wonder what possesses people who hate people to open a restaurant. I asked myself this question when confronted with the most unwelcoming proprietor of any Nice beach restaurant. Any small request was met with an indignant "Non!" without even a semblance of politeness. Once the owner and her equally indignant daughter were out of the way however, other employees treated us well and kindly. I had the artichoke salad (a Nice specialty) which was a fairly tasty composition of raw, sliced artichoke hearts and parmesan cheese. My companion ordered the fresh fruit dessert which was also well put-together. The mojito cocktails with champagne were delicious and the facilities were clean and modern but there's no interior shower. Jeanne June 27, 2012
