|Stay beachside in Nice?Private Beach Menu Review Map|
Lido is a public beach, centrally located between Blue beach and Ruhl beach that contains Lido Plage private beach-restaurant. The public beach is small but wide and contains Nice's only pontoon, the last remnant of a Belle Epoque casino that was destroyed during WWII.
In July and August a part of the beach and sea is roped off for nautical activities. There are swimming classes for kids, aquagym for seniors and aquabike for everyone. See more at Nice Natation.
The Congres/Promenade bus stop is at the beach entrance. You'll find buses 8, 11, 52, 59, 60, 70, 94, 98, 200, 230, 400, 500, 720, 790
Across the Promenade is the cafe-restaurant, Sarao, which serves a full range of meals and snacks. Next door is Cane au Sucre, a casual snacks place.
On the public beach, there's a portable WC in the summer. Naturally, Lido Plage has all necessary facilities for its clients.
From June to September there's a lifeguard and first-aid station at Lido beach. See more about lifeguards.
Parking on the street is extremely difficult here. There is a paid underground parking at the Palais Mediterranée.
Lido Plage is known for its generous salads and reasonable prices (see my review). Note that this is one of the few beach-restaurants in Nice to offer a lower price for the second row of lounge chairs. All are comfortably outfitted with mattresses. See more about private beaches and beach-restaurants.
