What were once humble fishing ports under the watchful eye of local sailors, have now developed into the French Riviera, or Cote d’Azur. Whatever you prefer to call this 805km (500mi) stretch of sand, this gleaming blue sun-sponge is now one of the most glamorous coastal regions on the planet. But its global renown brings global crowds, and the traffic along its winding corniche (cliff) roads can sap any feeling of opulence. Why not follow the route of the region’s original settlers and take in the stunning sights from the seclusion of the sea? Whether you’re sailing or yachting, here are the best day trips to take around the French Riviera.
