    If you don't mind walking, the cheapest way to get to Cap 3000, from Nice or another place, is by train. Get off on Saint-Laurent-du-Var station and walk to the shopping mall.

    From Nice SNCF station (centre-ville) to Saint-Laurent-du-Var station, the trip takes around 10 min. Check train timetable at:

    Topless sunbathing is considered acceptable on the beaches of France.

    Even though a lot of French women frequently wear lingerie thong, you rarely see them wearing bikini thong on the beach.

Saint-Laurent-du-Var Warnings and Dangers

    by Elainehead Written May 8, 2004

    The Cap 3000 beach is pebbly, so it's not very comfortable to walk or sunbathe. Watch out for broken bottle glass, pieces of wood and dog "gifts" (i.e. crap).
