Cannes – home to the iconic Film Festival

Backed by gentle hills and flanked to the southwest by the red rugged cliffs and wild protected scenery of the Corniche d’Esterel, Cannes is synonymous with the high life, with the famous Croissette where World famous boutiques make up the promenade that lines the shores. With restaurants, chic café-bistros and luxurious hotels the tourists departing their superyachts are enticed ashore for evenings full of extravagant revelry.

La Croissette is best viewed from the highest point of Cannes’ Old Town, Le Suquet, where the remains of the fortified tower still stand, along with the 12th century Chapel of St Anne.

In calm conditions Cannes is the perfect place to moor, swim, dive and soak up the sun before stepping ashore to enjoy restaurants, nightclubs and beach clubs of this iconic resort. Each year Cannes plays host to world-renowned events like the International Film Festival and weekly high season international fireworks competition.

For a perfect day out from Cannes, anchor in the shelter between the “Isles de Lerins”.
