Beach map of central western Nice

In front of Lenval Hospital, Lenval public beach is bordered on the west by Cocoon beach restaurant. Lenval is a no-smoking beach. The rule is in effect 9am to 6pm May to October. (Centenaire is the other non-smoking beach). In June Lenval is also one of two dog-friendly beaches in Nice. The other is Carras, further to the west.

Lenval public beach, Nice

The beach is slightly narrower than other public beaches which makes it harder to escape traffic noise from the Promenade. A narrow ramp next to the stairway access makes the beach more accessible for wheels such as carriages, strollers or luggage.


The nearest hotel is Etap on ave de la Californie at the western end of Lenval beach.
