Is there any other way to experience the Cote d’Azur? We at the Luxury Concierge believe that the best way to experience the French Riviera is through a day trip via yacht! Traveling on a boat will enable you to enjoy the best of both worlds.
There is nothing like sailing between fisherman villages, doing tapenade and wine tastings, while seeing the sun set across an endless horizon. Now given the extensive selection of stops along the coast, it can be hard to find the top day trips via yacht. However, this will no longer be an issue after reading this article, because we are here to provide you with the best sailing itineraries from Cannes and Monaco.
Best Yacht Day Trips in the French Riviera
Home to one of the best ports in the French Riviera, chances are that you will find yourself departing from this infamous city. Now the question is whether you go to the right or the left you will be sure to find hidden gems of the French Riviera. Our recommendation is that you sail out of Cannes with a glass of rose in hand and make your first stop in Antibes. Here you will find a medieval village constructed of winding stone roads that interlock. Upon this stop we recommend checking out the best fresh seafood restaurant, Mer Sea, which features a sister fish shop – guaranteeing servings of the day’s catch.
After we recommend sailing to Nice for lunch at La Réserve de Nice, a unique restaurant with two outdoor seating areas located on rocks within the sea. This restaurant is well-known for its high service quality and luxurious gastronomic offerings. Finally, to end the day we recommend sailing to Villefranche around the corner to enjoy the sandy beach and a selection of seaside restaurants offering traditional French cuisine.
The home of luxury and adventure is one of the best launching points for a day of sailing because of its proximity to some of the best beaches. Your first stop should be Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, a commune of the South of France located on a peninsula with breathtaking views from all angles. Here we suggest enjoying breakfast at a seaside restaurant such as Paloma Beach.
Then, after taking in some sun, the next stop should be Eze Sur Mer, home to a picturesque medieval village. Here we suggest visiting the Fragonard perfumery and learning about the perfume making process. The final stop is a tranquil cove with natural cliffs, providing astonishing views as you sail in. Here we recommend having lunch or dinner at La Reserve de la Mala, a high-end beach restaurant.
Following the itineraries outlined above is a guaranteed authentic experience that will leave you with memories of the top gems of the Riviera.
