When is the best time of year to charter a yacht in Cannes?

The ideal temperature for a luxury yacht charter in Cannes is between 25 – 32°C, making June to August the perfect months. Although May and September still turn on the summer sun and attract visitors from the world over during the city’s most renowned festivals. 

Peak season – June to August – is when you will find the world’s superyachts assembling in the port of Cannes, soaking up the atmosphere electrified by the world’s most wealthy people. This is a period for sun, fun and food. 

On the shoulder seasons of May and September, the atmosphere is still alive with the rich and famous arriving for professional and personal pleasure. If you’re hoping to glimpse some stars during your trip, or watch screenings of the latest international films, visit in May for the Cannes Film Festival. If you’re interested in purchasing a new yacht or simply taking in the decadence of a crowd who can, the Cannes Yachting Festival in September is worth a visit.

Must-do activities while yacht chartering in Cannes

When booking a boat charter in Cannes, one must have three types of activity on the itinerary: fine dining, visual arts, and stunning scenery. For these, we recommend:

Fine Dining

Delicacies can be found all around the region with a private charter in Cannes, but if your time is limited and you must select just two, La Mome Restaurant and La Guérite Restaurant are our favourites. 

In the main area of town, La Môme is the place to be. Chef Julian Cazalas serves upscale Mediterranean cuisine, á la pasta, steak and caviar. Taking advantage of your Cannes yacht charter, your next dining destination departs from the mainland, off to Île Sainte-Marguerite, where you can partake in a long lunch at La Guérite, nestled in a rocky cove serving the finest of Greek gastronomy. 

Stunning Scenery

From onboard your private yacht charter in Cannes, you can see the stunning scenery of Cannes, blending contemporary opulence with old-world architecture. Throughout the rest of the city, this beautiful fusion continues.

Stroll along the bay of Cannes to watch the superyachts, beautiful people and high-end boutiques, or head into the narrow streets of Le Suquet where architecture dates back centuries and medieval buildings tower above.

 

Off the mainland, your charter of Cannes is complete with a visit to the Îles de Lérins, two islands nearby with crystal clear waters and untouched beaches where you can snorkel or simply soak up the sun.

Visual Arts

Cannes is renowned for both cinema and cabaret. You can watch the latest international films at Cinema Les Arcades, an iconic, old-style cinema with a humble setting that still attracts the highest class. Or go for something more lively. 

La Medusa, built in the 1930s, hosts the most iconic cabaret in Cannes, where you can sit back and enjoy a delicious dinner along with the show. Afterwards, or instead, you could head out to La Bâoli for Asian Mediterranean fusion cuisine and a nightclub upstairs offering performances by world-class DJs with carnivalesque ambience and performances.
