Florida Beach is just one beach west of the marvellous AC Hotel Nice , a striking four-star hotel.
Parking is difficult in this neighborhood. You may have better luck heading further west.
There's a WC at the Avia service station just west of the beach across the Promenade. Naturally, Florida Beach has all necessary facilities for its clients.
The closest bus stop is Grosso/CUM/Promenade. You'll find buses 8, 11, 52, 59, 60, 70, 94, 98, 200, 230, 400, 500.
Florida Beach restaurant is a young, hip beach restaurant that is known for its summer nightlife. You can have a quiet early dinner, but later on you may be eating to a beat. On Thursday night in the summer, there's a DJ in action from 7pm to midnight. Florida Beach is also a popular venue for private parties so call before you head over. It also offers free Wifi. See more about private beaches and beach-restaurants. The attractive wooden lounge chairs are topped with mattresses.
Address: 71 Promenade des Anglais
Before settling down to lunch I had a brief swim and then went back to change into dry clothes. I was a little disappointed with the large changing area which was not closed to public view. For privacy, I was relegated to changing in the WC which was uncomfortable. The whole space could use freshening up. For lunch I ordered the Caesar salad which was copious and adorned with (allegedly) free-range chicken breast. It was fine but the sauce was somewhat bland. Service was friendly.
