Blue Beach public beach lies between Neptune and Sporting beaches at the bottom of rue Rivoli and contains the private Blue Beach restaurant. Between Neptune and Blue Beach is the watersports center, Glisse Evasion where you can engage in parasailing, wakeboarding, kayaking, water skiing and more. Even if you don't participate, it gives you something to watch while you're soaking up rays!

There's really nowhere to park on the street here; it's best to head further west. There is a paid underground parking garage at the Palais Mediterranée.


Although there's no lifeguard on duty at the public beach, you're close to the lifeguard at the private Blue Beach and not far from the lifeguard at the public Lido beach. See more about lifeguards.

Worried about your valuables while swimming? I recommend a waterproof fanny pack. Check out:


Blue Beach has all necessary facilities for its clients and there are public toilets accessed from the beach. Blue Beach is one of four beaches where ropes are installed up to the water's edge, making it easy to get out of the water and across the galets.


Besides dining at Blue Beach restaurant, you could cross the Promenade and eat at Koudon restaurant-brasserie.

Dinner here was casual and charming. As this was the day after the 15 August national holiday fireworks, the beach-restaurant was nearly empty which no doubt contributed to the relaxed, friendly service. The bartender prepared a most respectable mojito while I poured over the menu. I ordered the salmon in a saffron cream sauce and was pleased with my choice. The salmon was grilled on the outside and tender on the interior and the sauce complemented it perfectly. I liked the vegetable flan, gratinéed potatoes and ratatouille on the side which made the main course nicely balanced and filling. At €19, I found it good value for money and wouldn't hesitate to eat there again. Jeanne August 16 2013.
