"La Croissette" La Croisette Tip by Cathy24

La Croisette, Cannes: 21 reviews and 45 photos


I was on a cruise and only had a day in Cannes but what a day it was!!

We went to La Croissette and dandered around there for a couple of hours. It is basically this huge long street lined with palm trees and on one side you have the sea and all the private beaches with lovely yachts and cruiseliners in the distance and on the other, unbelievably beautiful fancy hotels and expensive shops like Chanel and Dolce and Gabbana. The atmosphere is great and it is really picturesque. If you cross over and go down any of the streets of La Croissette you will find more affordable shops like Zara and Mango and shoe shops and cafes. The shops are great, loads of variety and affordable.

At the beginning of La Croissette is the public beach which is free unlike the privately owned hotel beach. The sand is golden and the sea is crystal clear. Right beside it is the Palais for the film festival. You can also get a little road train tour right beside the public beach. This Petit Train takes you two different ways - ?7 up Le Suqet which is the old town and stops at the bell tower for you to take photos - good if its roasting hot and you dont fancy a very steep walk, the other way is also ?7 and takes you round La Croissette or do what we did and pay ?10 which takes you on both on one continuous journey. The train has a roof so its nice and cool and there are headphones if you want a guide.
