Back in 1887, writer Stephen Liegeard described the French Riviera as a ‘coast of light, of warm breezes and mysterious balmy forests’.

Since then, this sublime stretch of Mediterranean coastline from Toulon in the west to the French-Italian border in the east has become a honeytrap for artists like Picasso and random castaways bewitched by its reputation for glamour and excess.

If you’re traveling there from the US for the first time, you’re also following a trail blazed by writers like Scott Fitzgerald and Hemingway, who claimed the area as their own during the Jazz Age.

If you need some advice on embracing the Cote d’Azur good life, here are seven tips for a fab French Riviera trip.

  1. VIP parking

Since you’re vacationing in a superstar location, don’t get yourself ruffled by traveling to Charles de Gaulle Airport on public transport.

Book valet parking at Looking4.com for airports across the US and stroll into the terminal feeling fantastically laid-back.

  1. Radio

No one who wants to make the most of a holiday spends too much time glued to the apartment TV.

But radio is another matter, so tune your fancy cellphone into 106.5 FM for Riviera Radio. As well as top tunes, you’ll hear about upcoming cultural events in English.

  1. Reggae

If you’re yearning for live musical vibes to match the Riviera’s tropical climate, keep an eye on bigreggaefestival.com for tickets to France’s foremost small-scale Jamaican music celebration.

Held in July each year at locations in Juan les Pins, Golfe Juan or Antibes, in the past it’s attracted major stars like Damian Marley and Israel Vibration.

  1. Hotel

Cannes is famous for its international film festival and retains an air of insouciant elegance all year round.

If you fancy soaking up the rarefied atmosphere for a few days, stay at the Hotel Martinez — it’s a subtle Art Deco masterpiece where you can sip cocktails and spot supercars cruising past on La Croisette.

  1. Monaco

Monaco’s an independent principality rather than a part of France, but its tax-free exclusivity, iconic casino and world-famous Grand Prix circuit make it a must-see during any Riviera sojourn.

Don’t miss HSH Prince Rainier III’s collection of luxury cars at the Terrasses De Fontvielle — this opulent display of Rollers, Maseratis, Ferraris and Formula 1 cars is completely unique.

  1. Eze

Located between Nice and Monaco, the medieval hilltop village of Eze is peppered with cool cobbled streets, brilliant Boho craft shops, swaying palm trees and breathtaking views of the azure sea below.

Enjoy a kir royale on the terrace at Chateau Eza as the sun splashes across the hillsides for a magical moment you’ll never forget.

Photo of The Moulin Rouge in a snowstorm at 82, boulevard de Clichy, Pigalle region. Further west on Boulevard de Clichy are O’Sullivans by the Mill, Le Jardin d’Hiver, Le Théâtre Ouvert, The Station Bar, and Le Théâtre des Deux Ânes.

  1. Tropez

St. Tropez has been a hotspot for socialites and stars like the Rolling Stones since the 1960s and you’ll still see famous faces there to this day.

One of the best places to chill out in comfort is Moorea bar and restaurant on the iconic Pampelonne beach just outside of town — it’s cozy, private and chic.

That’s our list! Share your own Riviera travel tips in the comments section.

Apart from resting in the white sands basking in sun’s plenty warmth, you can indulge in many fun activities such as fishing, boat riding, kayaking, and parasailing. There are also sites where you can interact with dolphins. The beach is an interesting place to go and you will never miss anything for a day’s leisure, as there are a few classic restaurants and shops within the beach. One special thing about the beach is the daily Pier 60 event that is held from afternoon to the evening hour.

It is an event you cannot miss to experience live concerts and local artistic souvenirs on sale. Escape from the summer heat by driving to the Sunblades Centre where you will find a simulated ice skating environment. This is the reason for Clearwater region being a popular ice skating destination in Florida. Sand Key Park, on the other hand, is a nice place for a family outing. It is a park beside the beach so you can choose to rest within the park or beside the shores of the ocean, and enjoy kayaking and wildlife sightseeing during nature tours within the park.

Cat Island is an island territory of the Bahamas. The island is popular for housing the highest land of the Bahamas nation, monasteries, and its historic backgrounds that contributed to the building of the country. Cat Island is situated at the central region of Bahamas. It is not isolated as it has over a thousand people living in it, despite its small size that covers only forty miles in terms of length. However, the settlements in the island create a picture of a simple lifestyle.

The tourist resting sites are the highly modern sites with leisure facilities. Cat Island got its name from the unique experiences that occurred within it. Out of true happening, the island was once a habitat for the feral cats, so the cats were the highest population in it. On the other hand, the island is suggested to have derived its name from its first European settler, Arthur Catt, who was a pirate in the 18th century.

Tailored towards being a tourist destination, the island has two actively operating airports. The New Bright and Arthur Town Airports connect the island to nearby Nassau and Fort Lauderdale in Florida using direct flights. Airplane is the common means of accessing Cat Island. Arthur Airport is located at Arthur Port.

Cat Island has appropriate accommodation facilities. However, the number of the facilities can be few during the peak season when there are too many tourists to spend their nights in the island. Thus, try to check into the inns as early as possible before you move in for the period ahead. The facilities can be friendly to your budget, but be prepared to meet smaller rooms that the size you may have thought of them.

Cat Island hosts high-end restaurants and hotels as eateries for people on leisure in the island. There are also groceries where you can stop to buy food recipes to use for cooking in the rental apartment f your choice. Dining in the eateries is generally expensive; not less than $25 for a meal, but the food is skillfully prepared and served in plenty unlike luxurious hotels in some countries that serve less for little food.

One of the places to go for excursions in Cat Island is the Alvernia Mountain. It bears many attractions from its unique geographical sorroundings to the monastery that stands at the peak of the mountain. If you like mountain climbing, then it would be your chance to climb the mountain to reach the monastery and have a blazing of the massive surrounding landscape of the island.

Next to the mountain is an ancient attraction in form of ruins of a once productive, large, agricultural land known as the Armbrister Plantation. From there, you can pass by the bubbling Boling Hole Lake, a natural breeding ground for sharks, and numerous species of birds that nest in the small mangrove forest close to the lake. It is also in Cat Island that you will find a strong glass-bottomed bridge. Crossing over it can be fearful but you get to see the ocean from the high glass ground.
