Sister city of Hollywood and host of the famous film festival, Cannes, with its palm-lined La Croisette, golden beach and five star hotels oozes cinematic and pure Riviera glamour.
Travel bucket list idea:
Walk the Tire-Poil Path
Cannes, Cote d'Azur, France
Escape civilization along this surprisingly wild, circular 5km coastal path that winds around Cap d’Antibes. Start at Garoupe Beach and pass rocky cliffs, high over the crashing waves.
Getting there & doing it
If you don’t have a car, you can take a taxi or local bus the 15 minutes from Antibes port to Garoupe beach, where the walk starts from the car park. You could book in for a pricey but unforgettable lunch in season at Grill Eden Roc, the only part of the mythic Hotel du Cap Eden Roc that is open to the public.
When to do it
Because the path edges over cliffs and can be slippery (marked with Danger de Morte signs), it’s closed during bad weather, and is best for adults. The best walking months in the region are March to October.
