If there is anything that Cannes is known for, the beautiful sandy beaches are on top of the list. Palm Beach is one of the most popular beaches and its location, in the Croisette area, makes it an ideal beach to quickly go to after a morning of shopping in the area. Palm Beach overlooks the island of Sainte-Marguerite. Parking in the lot next to the beach is free. There are bus stops nearby for those using public transportation.
