Lido is a public beach, centrally located between Blue beach and Ruhl beach that contains La Baieta private beach-restaurant. The former Lido Plage private restaurant is now closed. The public beach is small but wide and contains Nice's only pontoon, the last remnant of a Belle Epoque casino that was destroyed during WWII.
Lido beach is right in front of the luxurious five-star Palais Mediterranée. It's also an easy walk from the four-star Hotel West End , the Hotel Westminister and the splendid five-star Hotel Negresco.
