Cannes is not only known for its festival and walking along the Croisette. Its marina is also loved by boaters. If you have the chance to rent a boat in Cannes, you will sail around luxury yachts, and perhaps meet a celebrity. However, Cannes is also a charming city, located on the Mediterranean. It is a great sailing area with islands, moorings, beaches... An ideal place to charter a yacht for a week !
Cannes is a luxurious Mediterranean seaside resort situated on the French Riviera in the Gulf of Napoule, on the western part of the department of Alpes-Maritimes. With its pleasant climate, Cannes is a very popular stopover amongst pleasure boaters looking for luxury and authenticity. If Cannes is indeed famous for its luxury hotels and nice cars, let’s not forget it is also a place full of history that will seduce you with its typical fishing harbour and its charming little alleyways.
Cannes marina is situated in the centre of the city and is perfectly well equipped. It is home to prestigious sailboats and each year the Yacht Club organises well-known regattas such as the ‘Régates Royales de Cannes’.
Easily accessible by train or plane, the port of Cannes is only 5 minutes walk from the station, 10 minutes from Cannes-Mandelieu airport and 30 minutes by car from the international Nice Côte d’Azur airport.
In this harbour, which is one of the oldest of the French Riviera, 250 moorings are dedicated to visiting boaters. There you will find all the necessary amenities for a pleasant and carefree stop. Generally speaking, the port is very sheltered but the outer harbour can be choppy when there is a strong easterly wind thus making it difficult to enter at night. A few nautical miles away from Monaco, Antibes or the Lérin islands, Cannes is a typical stopover on the French Riviera but it can be very busy if not full in July and August.
