Beach map of central and east Nice

Forum public beach is what I would call a "full service" beach as it has both a private beach-restaurant, Hi Beach, and plenty of public facilities to make a day at the beach comfortable. Also comfortable is the beach itself at Forum. While not exactly sandy, the galets are smaller than those on other beaches and interspersed with some sand.

Forum beach is in central Nice between Voilier and Neptune beaches and at the foot of ave Gambetta. As it's easily accessible from northern Nice, Forum is a popular beach and can be crowded on a summer day.

Hotels

Forum is easily accessible from two first-rate hotels: the four-star Elysee Palace is a few blocks to the west and the five-star Negresco is a short walk east.

Safety

With lifeguards and a first-aid station, you can plunge into the waves in total security.See more about lifeguards.

Parking

There's very limited hourly parking available on the Promenade. Otherwise, there's the underground parking Palais Massena (04 92 17 54 42) a short walk east at 29 Promenade des Anglais.

Access

The Gambetta/Promenade bus stop is on the Promenade across from Hi Beach. You'll find buses 8, 11, 52, 59, 60, 70, 94, 98, 200, 230, 400, 500.

Facilities

There's a public showers and toilets next to the entrance to Hi Beach.

Eating

Right on the beach, there's Hi Beach restaurant. Across from Hi Beach there are two cafe-restaurants: Les Jardins du Capitol and Cocodile. Walk a block east and there's Pinocchio, a cafe that serves ice cream, sandwiches and drinks.
