Juan-les-Pins Travel Guide
Plage Les Pêcheurs
Relaxed seaside resort with excellent facilities
Traffic, too expensive private beaches, crowded
In a nutshell
Easy life, but probably not enough interest for a long stay
Invasion of Juan les Pins
One of Parisian artists more easy-to-spot installations graces the Art Deco painted railway bridge at the entrance to Juan les Pins
Cap d'Antibes and Les Ollivietes beaches
South of the main Juan le Pins beach along the winding road to the Cap are many small sandy bays and beaches that allow you to escape from the bar/restaurant and sunbeds. Fragments of WWII fortifications remain in the water, forming sheltered areas, and the beach is sandy...
Les P?cheurs: Expensive and long waiting to be served
We decided eating here because we were staying in their private beach and mostly we were hungry. What a mistake!!! We waited a good while until someone would finally notice our presence, actually my husband had to call a waiter, otherwise we would have stayed there much...
Chez Tétou: Best Bouillabaisse
Run by a family since the 1950s, Chez Tétou, is most famous for its lobster bouillabaisse. The rich and famous dine next to ordinary individuals at this still incredibly authentic and exquisite seafood restaurant. It is located right on the beach in a casual, yet elegant...
Grand Marnier: France's most delicious Crêpes
This family-run crêperie serves arguably France's most delicious crêpes. Although they are served with any desired toppings, the house's specialty - as the name indicates - is a sprinkle of Grand Marnier liqueur. With or without, however, this crêpe is unforgettable. When...
Les Arcades: Rush in - rush out
This is one of the strip of restaurants on Rue du Dr. Dautheville that feature host(esse)s standing on the street trying to get you to sit down. The attempts for a quick sell then get reflected in the actual meal, which is a rushed affair for French standards. It's clear...
This nightclub faces the Jardin les Pinedes and doesn't open until midnight. We arrived 10 mins before it opened, saw the miniscule line of people waiting, but still had to wait a half hour to get in because the bouncer was letting people in at a trickle pace, in order to...
Pam Pams: A fun but expensive night
A fun night was had in Pam Pams - a themed bar with dancing cabaret dancers wearing lots of feathers. Suitable for couples, friends or families. Beware - cocktails are expensive (about €8 before 10 and €11 later on...watch for the increase in time/prices!!) and quite...
Public bus from Nice airport to Juan-les-Pins
The public bus line nr. 200 takes you to the centre of Juan-les-Pins. It departs from the bus terminal at Nice airport, just outside the arrival terminal. The buses are not indicated with their numbers, but with their final destinations, in the case of the nr. 200 CANNES....
If you want to travel in style and have a personal taxi with a nice and very comfortable car, you should travel with "Angel Car". The Nice-based airport transfer is very recommendable. The transfer to Juan-les-Pins from Nice Airport costs approx. EUR 40,- (July 2006).
Easy Dive: Diving and snorkelling equipment
Well stocked diving shop. If you are after proper diving gear or just snorkelling equipment or the odd bits and bobs, this is ideal.
They also have a dive centre so can arrange dives and training.
What to buy: Anything!
Generally good range of discounted gear after the high season.
|otherwise good choice of Italian, French and other brands.
What to pay: Fair prices. Not cheap but fair.

Always use sun protection ...
When you are not used to this strong sun or when it's about smaller children ... always use sun protection when sun bathing on the beaches along the Cote d'Azur. Also after swimming in the salt sea and having taken a shower, do put on a new layer of protecting creme or oil. For smaller children it is also adviced to have a cap to protect their eyes. Ilja continuously threw it off and payed the price in the evening with a bruning headache. The next days he treasured his cap like his beloved white seal (cuddly toy).

Les P?cheurs Private beach offers no privacy
I definitely hated my very first experience in a private beach. It was crowded and the sunbeds were lined beside each other almost "glued". There are only 2 WCs, one for men and one for women (no toilet paper), but many changing rooms.They allow dogs here. One Yorkshire...
Naval and Napoleons Museum
On a point on Cap d'Antibes, the Grillon Tower overhangs the remains of an ancient battery. As the story goes, André Sella, manager of the Grand Hotel on Cap d'Antibes, had a large collection of documents and objects from the time of Napoleon's return from Elba. In 1952, the...
Cap d’Antibes is a symbol of the luxury life on the French Riviera. On our way to the Jardin Thuret we passed countless villa's and houses of the obviously quite wealthy. On the Cap d’Antibes one can find several green and beautiful gardens; the most popular one is the...
Sailing schools for children
Sailing, learning to sail.
Juan-les-Pins has few very good schools for sailing lessons, especially for children. It's also very funny to see how the groups of boats leave the beach and follow one another in little clusters ...
Besides this, one also can do parasailing, waterskiing, speedboating, jetskiing, sailing and just swim in the waters along Juan-les-Pins beach

Private vs. Public Beaches
The beaches are the main reason to go to Juan-les-Pins, but we were shocked to find how many of the beaches were private, charging 15 euro a person for a reclining beach chair and a hot shower. In my opinion, they're not worth it. There's numerous free beaches, including a...
