Cannes is one of the most glamorous cities on the French Riviera, offering not only beautiful beaches but also luxury hotels in a sparkling atmosphere. The climate of the Maritime Alps and the numerous marinas combine to make Cannes one of the top yacht charter destinations in the world.
There are five Cannes harbours and the two most important are the old port and the port Canto. Luxury yachts and pleasure boats can be found there all year round and many water sports activities are available: water-skiing, jet-skiing. You can also explore the beautiful seabed of the bay of Cannes during a snorkeling session from your rental boat.
Renting a sailing or motor boat gives you access to the Lérins islands located in front of the bay of Cannes. This small protected and preserved area is an idyllic setting to get a glimpse of the history of the Mediterranean and taste good wines.
The largest one, Sainte-Marguerite Island, includes a bird reserve, numerous paths and quiet creeks. In the heart of the umbrella and maritime pines, you will find the abbey of the monks of Lérins on the island Saint-Honorat. It was founded by Saint Honorat around 410 and today Cistercian monks still reside there.
Sail towards Saint Raphaël towards the bay of Théoule to discover the creeks and wild creeks at the foot of the Estérel massif. The red of the rock contrasts with the azure blue of the sea and sky. On the way, stop in beautiful sandy beaches near Mandelieu la Napoule and visit the Château de la Napoule located on the Mediterranean coast.
Your yacht charter can also take you to the cities of the French Riviera such as Saint Tropez,Nice or Juan les Pins. The natural anchorages and the bay of Golfe Juan offer magnificent views of the Cap d'Antibes and the Lérins islands. During the sailboat trip, the small forgotten anchorages will give you the opportunity to swim away from the crowds.
From Cannes you can also sail to Corsica or Sardinia. These Mediterranean islands are really worth the detour! But if you don't have the time to sail on the French Riviera, renting a boat in Cannes is still an option to consider.
To fully enjoy the Cannes Film Festival and avoid the crowds, a yacht charter offers the opportunity to be in the heart of the city and the events. During the day, the boat can be used as an office. What better way to impress your partners and clients than by renting a luxury yacht, located just a few meters from the Palais des Festivals? You can also offer them a private reception and organise sumptuous parties.
Renting a yacht in Cannes for your holidays allows you to enjoy luxury accommodation in the heart of the action. If you wander around the city, you can even meet the many film stars who come from all over the world for the occasion. In the evening, your rental boat becomes the ideal setting for cocktails and dinners with family or friends.
