Poincare public beach is east of Magnan and west of Florida Beach. The beach is rather narrow at the western end but widens nicely towards the east. The high rocks separating the beach from the Promenade help keep the traffic noise down. As the beach lies somewhat west of central Nice, it's less crowded than more central beaches.
There's a lifeguard on this beach from June to September. See more about lifeguards.
There's very limited hourly parking on the Promenade des Anglais but it's inadvisable to come here by car.
There's a portable WC in the summer and a WC in the Avia service station across the Promenade.
