Juan les Pins

By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Our Editorial team's advice

Juan-les-Pins is a town in the region of Antibes at the heart of the French Riviera. For those who love lazing about, relaxing, and sandy beaches, it is a mandatory stop-off between Cannes and Nice. A former fishing hamlet founded in 1882, today Juan-les-Pins is town popular with tourists in summer.
This seaside resort town has seen some big names, including Gilbert Bécaud, Ray Charles, Charles Trenet and Edith Piaf. Incidentally, the European Jazz Festival has been held here every year since 1960.
To develop its tourism, of which its neighbours are so proud, Juan-les-Pins is rebuilding its 'Palais des Congrès', which is scheduled to open in early 2013.
As you can see, this corner of the French Riviera has everything you'll need for a sun-filled stay in southeast France.

Sunset over the Mediterranean. The lights of Cap d'Antibes, Golfe-Juan, and Nice, which you can admire from the beach.

To do

Relaxing on the water's edge on the sandy beaches. Learning to play petanque on the central square. Why not opt for a night at the Casino or in one of the town's trendy nightclubs.
