Ponchettes beach

 

Eastern beach map

The long Ponchettes public beach stretches from Opera beach in the west to Castel in the east and contains a sandy beach-volleyball court. Although it's a hike from a bus stop, Ponchettes is the closest beach to Nice's Old Town and is within easy reach of dining and snacking options. After a game of volleyball of course. Ponchettes is also a no-smoking beach.
