Grande Plage Beach, Juan les Pins
This is the main beach of Juan-les-Pins, and it’s also one of the widest. This is a great public beach with lots of sand, a great view and a buzzing energy in the summer months.
Grande plage beach is a lovely beach with a gorgeous view and is entirely public. With good facilities and a short walk to town, it’s no surprise that this beach is absolutely heaving in high summer. If you don’t like crowds, try your luck at Plage de la Gallice or Plage du Crouton instead, or head to one of the hidden beaches of Cap d’Antibes.
Dogs: Dogs are forbidden on this Riviera beach between mid-April and 1 October, although you might get away with it on a slightly cooler or rainy day. Because this beach is so open and there are many overlooking buildings, this might not be your best bet for a sneaky dog walk in summer- keep your eye out for the locals and see what they do.
