Top 6 travel tips for the Cannes Film Festival

Top 6 travel tips for the Cannes Film Festival

Old Port Cannes

Where to berth for the Cannes Film Festival

For a fortnight every May the town of Cannes in the French Riviera is descended upon by the great and good of the film industry for the Cannes Film Festival.

Bigger and more cosmopolitan than St Tropez, prettier than Monaco, more yachtie than Nice, Cannes is home to some of the world's largest superyachts, fabulous shops and restaurants.

Where to berth for the Cannes Film Festival

There are two marinas in Cannes — Port Pierre Canto and Port de Cannes.

Port de Cannes, also known as Old Port, can host superyachts up to 65 metres, has a total of 60 superyacht berths, is right next to the Cannes Palais des Festivals and as a result is the location of choice for the Cannes Film Festival. The premium spots for the festival are in the inner harbour and this is where the celebrity yacht parties are likely to take place.

Porto Pierre Canto is the larger of the two full-service marinas in Cannes and is positioned to the east of the town, at the far end of La Croisette. It is able to facilitate yachts up to 90 metres and there are 40 berths for yachts over 30 metres.
