The beach is a stone beach so bring your swim shoes if you have them. You can buy them for €10 at a shop across the road from the beach. It is difficult getting in and out of the water if you don't have these. Lovely for swimming not so much for surfing or boogie boarding and the kids would find it boring as there is no sandcastles! Also not safe for small kids as there is a big drop a few steps into the sea and then your out of your depth. So really Nice beach is more for adults and teens.
The sea is aqua blue just fab, with a lovely sea breeze. So relaxing and nice. No loud music, its a real chill out zone. You will pay €22 for a lounger on the beach club associated with your hotel or €44 if not. There are public beaches (free) but you would need a padded beach mat for comfort when sunbathing as the stones underneath are big. You can buy these at the local shop too.
Most of the beaches were quite pebbly, however many of the small restaurants on the beach provide seating or at least more comfortable beach mats to sit on. The beach is very short ~20-30m from the promenade.
The water is a beautiful colour and temperature. Be aware that it is a stone beach (not sand or pebbles). Having shoes to wear in the water and something to sit on would be very helpful!
Wonderful waves. Great fun for the children. Lido Beach was brilliant. They had toilets and you could leave your valuables (small fee). They also had parasols for rent etc.
Beautiful blue sea, fresh air, sun, warm weather. It's just great. The private beaches especially. They're about 20 EUR per day per person but it's totally worth it.
There were lots of separated sections of the beach coast line in Nice. Some were free and others charged for the use of sun loungers. Some had showers, waiters or were managed by restaurants or hotels. We had different experiences on different sections which was like being in a new resort.
There is no sand only little pebbles so a top tip would be to wear rubber sea shoes, the is also a steep decent into the water so not for the light hearted or weak swimmers.. But the water is amazingly fresh and clear and we'll worth a dip
Beach is stony not sandy which is a shame. Lovely long promenade . old town a delight.
Parking in Nice can be difficult. easy to vista Cap Ferrat , Cannes and Monaco from Nice.
It was December :) Although it was quite nice and sunny weather and there were even few people swimming - we did not dare to join: +5C is not my favorite water temperature :)
I enjoyed walking and sitting on the boardwalk, watching the pepole and the sea. I also sat on a lounge soaking up the sun and the sound of the waves
