Nice’s pebble beach fringes the Bay of Angels, with the sea on one side and the Promenade des Anglais and a peppering of swanky beach clubs on the other.
Nice’s main strip of beach is impossible to miss – it’s a pale grey, pebbly number, stretching all the way from the airport in the west to the marina in the east. A line-up of beach clubs have set up shop along the shore, so you’ll have no trouble finding a sunbathing spot and a bite to eat.
Tucked away behind the harbour lies Plage des Bains Militaires – or Beach of the Military Baths. This tiny bay’s made up of the same grey pebbles that you’ll see on the main stretch, and it comes with a bit more shade thanks to its sheltered position.
This internationally famed dish originated in Nice, so it’d be rude not to try it while you’re there. It’s a stewed mixture of vegetables and herbs like carrots, tomatoes, onion, garlic, basil and courgette, most often served as a side dish.
This classic dish is made up of sliced tomatoes, hard boiled eggs and green peas layered on top of lettuce, then topped with tuna and anchovies. You’ll find it on restaurant menus all over the city.
You’ll find this popular snack on offer at street food stalls all around Nice, so it’s easy to get your hands on one. It’s essentially a crepe made from chickpea flour and olive oil, heavily seasoned with pepper.
If you’re after something more filling, opt for this dish. It consists of beef that’s been slow-cooked with red wine, carrots, onions and herbs. You’ll usually get a hearty side like bread or pasta to go with it.
Pissaladière’s a tart topped with black olives, caramelised onions and anchovies. It’s a bit like a pizza, but with a chunky, bread-like dough.
