“Draws you like a magnet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

we always seem to end up here no matter where we walked its so relaxing sitting watching people walk by.Its a very flat nice stroll plenty off places to stop and rest.
We all commented on how clean the place was and how safe you feel although the prom is nice can't say the same for the beach its all pebbles very uncomfortable to your feet.If you go on the beach sunbeds are very expensive 45 euro's for three.

“A must!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

We were lucky to be in Nice for Bastille and the celebrations along this Promenade were wonderful. It was buzzing! Lots of families and children enjoying the festivities. Is a great place to "stroll" and people watch. Lovely sea views along with Beautiful historic Buildings, Classy Hotels and Casino's dotted along this Walk. Can't wait to get back there today and do some more exploring!

“Beautiful promenade - some places to eat- and you can actually see the ocean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

If you go to Nice, you will want to see this. The Promenade des Anglais is one of the few places on the Cote d'Asur where you can get a long uninterrupted view of the water which made the Cote d'Azur famous --- so, by all means, go.
Like many Mediterranean beaches, this one is rocky. If you want to pay for an umbrella and chaise expect to be less than a hand's length from your neighbors.
Nice can be very hot in the summer -- so late afternoon or evening is the time to enjoy the Promenade.

“Take a stroll”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

For those travelling on a budget or those who don't really do the beach life, one walk up the prom will be enough. It is very beautiful and the array of bars, hotels and casinos at the top end of the Nice money chain are great to eye but will hurt you in the wallet. During peak season you can be sure that it will be full on with people and life, and especially at night after the sun goes down it is worth a walk up and down just to get a feel for the place. And if you are feeling a little flush, take a seat in one of the bars on the front and watch the world pass you by with the rest of the beautiful people.

“In the heart of the Riviera”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

This is the place to see and be seen. It is very quaint with the Mediterranean on one side and its majestic buildings on the other side. One gets a sense of City and what it has to offer its visitors. It is a bit "turista" but then again people go to Nice to visit this famous boulevard.
