    A safe harbour for travellers and fishermen

    Lighthouse of the old harbour

    Cannes harbour was one of the safer harbours along the Cote d'Azur, because the view was reaching far and thus danger could be spotted quite early. With the munks at the Ile Saint-Honorat and in the castle tower, the harbour was popular especially by fishermen. Now-a-days only few fisher boats lay in the old harbour, which is almost as packed as the new yaught harbour near Palm Beach.

    The boats in the bay

    Oh ... if only one day ... deep sigh

    Lovers of boats and yaughts can spend days and dyas on the shores of Cannes. Bring a binoculars and watch the hundreds of floating fortresses as well as graceful sailboats in the bay of Cannes. In a seperate travelogue I have added some pictures to show the variety of ships that are anchored in the bay, while their masters enjoy the leisures in Cannes.

    Just a "third division" yatch moored at Cannes

    Tueq

    Rank 31 in the worlds hundred largest yatchs is 235 foot Tueq (pronounced “Tewk”). The owner is reportedly the brother of Saudi Arabia’s King Fahd, Prince Salman. He and the rest of the royal family were spotted aboard the five-deck yacht by the French newspaper Le Monde last August. Moored here in Cannes.

    I want a boat like that

    what a beautiful yaught

    Cannes port is a very popular tourist spot.Hundreds of boats and luxury yachts moor here every year.I walked along the Allees de la Liberte which was lined with beautiful palm trees and had a fantastic view of the harbour.Walking along the quay was great as i had a delighful view of the hills of Super-Cannes and the 1.5 mile long boulavard de la Croisette.Pretty little buildings line the front painted a mixture of bright colours.When i went here at night to have a drink in one of the many bars and restuarants i found it most romantic as the lights from them reflected in the water of the harbour and it looked very pretty indeed.
    I enjoyed just walking along looking at the luxury yachts and dreaming about being rich ;-)

    Fabulous yachts bobbing in the water surrounded by colorful shuttered buildings housing lively cafes and restaurants in the shadow of the ancient suquet. A great place to stroll and people watch.

    The ville and the old port

    The old port with the ville, Cannes

    Cannes is a very old city. Its history begins in the 200 a.C. Here you can see the old port and beside the old historical centre, with the Eglise that dominates the landscape.
