Plage des Catalans
This private sandy beach on the Catalans resort, near the Palais du Pharo, does charge an entrance fee, although beach umbrellas and sunbeds are available for rent and there are a number of volleyball courts for the sports lovers among you (tournaments also take place here). In addition, the beach is dotted with various snack bars and cafes, making it a not-to-be-missed spot for summer get-togethers.
La Plage de Catalans is the kind of beach you would expect in a big city: popular, dirty, noisy. It's an all-around average beach. There are much worse and there are definitely better. If you are not particularly choosy, it might suit you well.
It's conveniently located 3/4 of a mile from the Vieux Port and that is why at the same time dirty, popular and noisy. Because it's close to the city's vieux port, it could be the ideal place to take a break after a long summer day of sightseeing. in winter i wouldn't bother going there.
For choosier tourists a simple 10 minute bus ride along the corniche du president kennedy will bring them to el prado, plage de prophete and other nearby beaches.
In short, La Plage de Catalans is conveniently located and best of all it's free! Other than that it has nothing of extraordinary. And it's worth visiting it only during the hot summer months. If you want something more take bus 83 and get off at one of the other beaches.
