is one of the most well known of the French Riviera towns and is located approximately halfway along the 70 mile stretch of coast known as the Cote d’ Azur (Blue Coast.) It is all that you would expect from a glamorous resort town – the Old Harbor area filled with fishing boats and yachts, a beautiful beach and world class seaside hotels and restaurants. There are two yacht harbors in Cannes, one is to the right and one is to the left as you face the Mediterranean Sea. Inland you will find the hillside Old Quarter, a romantic Monastery with fabulous views, and the picturesque morning flower market along the Allees de Liberte. In May of each year the city is taken over by the Cannes Film Festival. Restaurants, bars, hotels, beaches and even the golf courses become packed with movie industry people and fans hoping to catch a glimpse of the stars. The rest of the year, however, Cannes is tranquil and is an excellent place to begin exploration of the towns further north and south along the French Riviera, such as St. Tropez, Antibes, Nice, Beaulieu and Monte Carlo. The mild Mediterranean climate, spectacular sunsets and deep cobalt blue sea, abundant marinas and yachting facilities all combine to make Cannes one of the world’s premier yachting destinations.
