We always start our annual winter stay in Nice with piping hot coffee on the beach. This is hard to explain back in NYC given that the temperatures are in the low to mid 50s without the windchill. But the beauty of the ocean, dotted...More

This place is fine for sunbathing. The service was fine, not exceptional but not bad either. Would return.
