Everybody comes to the promenade: tourists, locals, men, women, children, elders– the whole lot. After all, who doesn’t want to spend time strolling along the beautiful French Rivieria?
But strolling isn’t the only thing to do here. Avid rollerbladers, skateboarders, and bikers can often be seen cruising down the promenade. Of course, the stoney beach itself is equally popular. Due to Nice’s great summers and mild winters, flocks of people will be at the beach at any time of the year. People can be seen laying down, lounging, playing games, fishing, eating baguettes, watching the sunset, etc. Even in February, some men lie out in their speedos.
