Cannes is a very interesting spot, both for logistics at the beach, and for conditions offered when you ride in the water, that are proper for freeriding or waveriding, depending on the intensity and direction of the wind. The landscape is also charming


Windsurfing, spot reviews: Cannes (Provence - Cote d'Azur, France)

(Podcast available for Supporters, in the central part of the article)


The spot works with winds from the East/North East, or West and West/North West. With strong winds from the East, it can offer conditions good for waveriding.

The spot is easily reachable from the town center (ie, from the West), driving all along the famous Boulevard de la Croisette, and heading towards Cap de la Croisette (see map at end of article). Otherwise (best solution for those who arrive from East), you can reach it from Antibes (coming from the A8 motorway, you have to exit at Antibes), driving along the D35, then the D35bis, and D6007. Once you have arrived at the Cape, you can leave your car in the public parking lot right at the Cape. Otherwise, you can park near Boulevard Eugene Gazagnaire (in the side streets, because it is no longer possible on the Boulevard).

As for places where to eat, you can look for something on TripAdvisor, or you can have a walk in the old town, and find solutions within the reach of your budget. For a main course with vegetables in a mid-range restaurant, consider some 30 euros to pay (15 euro for a pizza). Otherwise there are a few bars/pubs, where you get by with around 20 euros (2017 prices). We had dinner from Steak and Shake (sandwiches with acceptable burgers).

In conclusion, Cannes is a very funny spot. To enjoy it fully, it's better to know it well (and this review certainly will help you). In case of winds over 40 knots, be careful, because, as mentioned, the spot has some pitfalls.

Hang loose. Fabio
