Cannes reputation as a glamorous resort for the beautiful people is well-deserved. With the harbor, the bay, the beachside promenade, the beaches and the people sunning themselves, Cannes provides more than enough natural beauty to make at least a day trip here worth the effort.
It's especially popular at the end of May, when film stars and photographers descend on the town to attend the International Film Festival. But during the rest of the year, the sleepy former fishing village is all about leisure. Whether you want beaches, fashion, or just people-watching from a cozy street-side café, Cannes is all that and more.
