Nice: Gay and Lesbian

Not typified as a gay and lesbian destination, Nice does, however, have an encouraging gay and lesbian community. Nice is famous for its beaches and has one gay beach Coco beach and another gay friendly beach Castle Plage. There are also a couple of gay beaches just ouside Nice such as Eze. Aside from beaches Nice boasts several art galleries and museums, and shopping opportunities. Explore the Old Town, and famous flower market before a night out at anyone of Nice's saunas, restuarants, bars and discos.

The main attraction over the past couple of years has been the opening of Le Klub, the biggest gay disco on the French Riviera. Also try Kf's bar, and the restaurant Cafe Borghese on Rue Fodere. The Eagle and Keep in Touch are also good places to try. Try The Block for larger parties. Each year in Nice there is a gay-film festival and a gay pride festival in June.
