One visit here is enough. Too many people, too much money being shown off, too many showoffs in general, and way too exclusive. Most of the beach is cordoned off for private access if you're welling to shell out the money. Those there are there to be seen if nothing else. Visit once to take some pics and say you've been there, but then leave and forget about coming back is it's overcrowded and way too noisy with idiots parking Lamborghinis and Ferraris along the street just to be seen or to rev the engine thinking that'll attract attention. See it then flee from it.

I spent 7 months trying to relocate & stayed in eleven accommodations from various platforms. S/c, hotels, private accommodations. ALL without exception had a truly shocking obnoxious attitude that I was lucky to be in Cannes - which I was. But not at the expense of consistent atrocious low standard of accommodation, broken, old dilapidated, negligent properties. The absolute worst lowest standard after a lifetime of extensive travelling experienced here for up to £1000 per week. Expected to take own sheets, do own cleaning although paid €100 frequently regardless of staying/paying up to 28 days. Don’t expect a towel change in two weeks. Misrepresentation and barefaced lies throughout (final straw was told a few steps to apt turned out 75 steps + ten minute trudge through complex). Cannes is great for the day. See the glamour and face value. Forget overnight hospitality and honesty for your money. Go to Greece if you want hosts that know how to deliver.

We got off the cruise in the morning. The film Festival started the dat after and the area was crowed with visitors. We walked along the beach and to the step of the Red Carpet. Then we went up to the mountain facing the ocean. It took us 1/2 and hour. The view was great. On our way back, we went through the market and lots of restaurants.

We came to Cannes in between festivals, thinking it would be quieter. Wrong! That's the time when things are set up and taken down for the various events. We found our hotel's access and beaches closed along the Croisette for this reason. Still, it was a lovely walking path crowded with people. I Cannes" now say I have been here!

Beautiful white beach and wide promenade. Great to people watch whilst walking along or swim in the clear sea! Upmarket looking, pretty, feels safe and would definitely visit again. Only downside is beaches are private, however this also means they are well maintained.

Great stretch for my morning runs, afternoon strolls, high end shopping and dining. (I'm pretending I did not see all the construction going on). Many beach clubs for enjoying a fine meal along the Med as well. Pricey area by fun ...

Fantastic beach with amazing views of the sea. Great for a stroll taking in the beautiful French weather. Also good to grab an ice cream or a bit on one of the mini shops on the path.

I have visited Cannes many times and always stayed in a hotel overlooking La Croisette with its colourful pavement light show every night. La Croisette is bordered by a beautiful sandy beach and beyond the beach is the twinkling blue Mediteranean, with its elegant yachts moored in the bay. The stunning Esterel Hills finish the backdrop.

At the western end of La Croisette is the old harbour, the old town and the hill, with the ancient fort on top. As you proceed in an easterly direction you have the Palais des Festivals or Exhibition Halls/Theatre, followed by the beaches, followed by the new marina, Porto Canto, followed by the Palm Beach Casino at the Eastern tip of La Croisette.

La Croisette is one of the most enchanting places in the world. There is nothing finer than walking along La Croisette, watching the sea, the boats and the elegantly dressed beautifully people. Even the elderly ladies walking their Poodles, Westies, Bichons and Yorkies are elegantly dressed in their Chanel suits in the summer and full length mink coats in the winter. Hermes handbags abound! This not the place to be ashamed of what you have. Just flaunt it like everyone else and you will blend in.

There is glorious weather most of the year - but I would miss November and December which can be cold. But this does not deter the hardy swimmers who can be seen almost every day of the year enjoying the warm sea temperatures. Some of the beaches are private for hotel guests, but there are public beaches as well, all with toilet shower and changing facilities.

As for food there is something for everyone. There are smart expensive restaurants scattered along the beach (only open at lunch time) where you can enjoy a good wine or a meal in a restful elegant setting. There are also kiosks selling ice creams, snacks and newspapers.

There are deck chairs and sun loungers for hire, and Blue upright chairs for those who need to rest and gaze at the world going by.

La Croisette is a duel carriageway for much of its length but it is no race trace. In the main expensive cars glide along slowly and quietly for all to see. It is nothing like Promenade des Anglais in Nice which is as busy as Park Lane in London or Park Avenue in New York.

And finally what is accros the road fron the lovely beaches? Elegant boutiques and designer shops. You will find Chanel, Dior, Jimmy Choo, Hermes, Louis Vutton and D & G just to name a few. There are also lovely hotels, restaurants, bars and appartment blocks. All tip top quality and very expensive as you would expect from a town like Cannes.

Have a good trip.

La Croisette is slightly similar to Promenade des Anglais in Nice. It is a great wide walk that offers great views as you walk along the Mediterranean and the best people watching in the world. The difference in Nice and Cannes is what what the people are wearing and what they are driving.

My husband LOVES to park himself near the Carlton for an hour (more if I'd let him) and drool over the cars coming and going. Many have Saudi license tags and probably have just been taken off the yacht the person arrived on. Ooh la la! Cars worth over 250,000 USD abound.

Walking this summer (2008) showed several concerts along the beach that were offered by Martinez and others. We just stood on La Croisette and enjoyed for free.

La Croisette has great kids activities as well - remote countrol boats in a fountain, a merry go round, game galleries, lots of ice cream, etc.

La Croisette has a SANDY beach which many French Riviera cities do not (Like Nice whose beach is made of pebbles).

I love Cannes and I love Nice. Both are wonderful people watching on their "promenades". But don't forget to get to "old Nice" and "old Cannes". They are to the edge of the activity and oddly easy to miss. They are AWESOME and old Nice is said to be like Venice which I didn't believe until I experienced it.

Can’t imagine people coming to Cannes and not walking along La Croisette at some point whether to walk, look at the over the top yachts in the Marina or simply people watch.

In March your walk will be interrupted by construction as repairs are completed and the beach is being refreshed with imported sand during low season but still worth a stroll.

The movie related photo opportunities give the selfie generation plenty of photo opportunities.
