5 ways to enjoy the Promenade des Anglais in Nice

Nice’s Promenade des Anglais is arguably France’s most famous promenade, extending approximately 7km all the way from the airport to the Quai des États-Unis. Understandably one of the city’s most popular tourist attractions, if you’re looking to rent holiday apartments in Nice, a visit to this promenade is a must.

Here are five different ways to experience the unique beauty and atmosphere of Nice’s glorious Promenade des Anglais:

1. Walk it

Stretch your legs and take in the views of the promenade at your own pace. You can spend an afternoon walking all seven kilometres, enjoying gorgeous views over the Mediterranean, and still be back at your apartment in time for dinner.

2. Rent some wheels

If you’re short of time for a walk, you can always take the same trip on wheels. There are plenty of options, too: rental shops leasing out skates, scooters, bikes and segways can be found at various points along the promenade. Enjoy a bracing cycle along the walkway or try something new and hire a segway.

3. Eat and shop

Shops and restaurants adorn the length of the promenade just across from the beach. Enjoy a leisurely stroll down the boardwalk, popping into shops and stopping off for lunch and drinks on the way. This is the ideal way to soak up some of the vibrant atmosphere that can only be experienced on the Promenade des Anglais.

4. Take in the sights

The promenade itself isn’t the only landmark worth mentioning. As you enjoy a stroll or a skate along the beachfront, keep an eye out for some of Nice’s most famous sights, including Niçoise sculptor Sabine Géraudie’s giant iron sculpture La Chaise de SAB, erected in 2014, and the art-deco Palais de la Méditerranée, which dates back to 1929.

5. Soak up the sun

Last but certainly not least, soak up some rays. You don’t need to experience the full length of the promenade to appreciate its beauty. Bring your best beachwear in a towel and pitch camp somewhere on the promenade’s sandy white beach. Enjoy views over the Mediterranean and stock up on valuable ‘me’ time at once.
