Juan-les-Pins is the hidden gem of the French Riviera, a spot of beach normalcy situated between pilars of pomp and wealth like Cannes, St. Tropez, Nice, and a million others with nicknames like “billionaires’ bay.” No thanks, give me a pretty beach, a handful of restos, and a slight grittiness that makes anything feel possible- champagne bar in a dirty bathing suit? Yes, please. Mother to nearly a strip club/tiki bar. Twice. Meet a handsome stranger at a jazz bar. Tick, tick. Too bad he was the most annoying republican.
Juan-les-Pins is the perfect little getaway, just a 45 minute flight from Geneva. It’s wonderful to have this little slice of Miami so nearby.
