The Basics

Running for a mile (2 kilometers) along Cannes’ famously beautiful seafront, La Croisette is so important to the French people that it’s listed on the cultural heritage register. Shaded with palm trees and home to many top hotels and designer stores, the boulevard is a must-visit destination for guided tours of Cannes. At the western end of the street, you’ll find the old port (vieux port), home to fishing boats and glitzy yachts, while to the east you can walk to Port Palm Beach.
