What you'll do

If you already walked on the beach and wondered what it is? What does it eat ? How it works ? Well, this experience is made for you ! Let's discover the beaten track of Nice. I would like to make you discover my passion for the marine world, and more particularly on the fabulous ecosystems that we can find on the French Riviera.
In short, we will leave from the port of Nice, in front of the Notre Dame du Port church. We will follow the road that leads to the coastal path where we can admire the Cap de Nice and we will end at the platform beach. There I invite you to discover the sea from another angle, thanks to a microscope. You can discover the various forms of life that make up the world of very small: zooplanktons, phytoplanktons!

Would you join ?
Other things to note
The proposed walk is not very difficult. However, some passages are steep and a few meters separate us from the sea, there are some stairs. Good shoes requested. Children too young, strollers are not allowed. Swimming is unfortunately not possible.

Hello to you ! My name is Juliette. I am passionate about the sea, its wonders but especially its inhabitants!

I would like to transmit my passion to you and above all to show you how essential its protection is.

Where you'll be

Our walk will start at the port of Nice: where it all begins.
We will take Boulevard Franck Pillard to reach the coastal path. We will follow the sea and the coves embedded in the rocks. By raising your head, you could appreciate the villas of the Belle-Époque. You could admire the promenade and the harbor from a different angle. Then we will pass the Cap de Nice to finish at the platform beach.

It is the best tour you could possibly find to get to know the beautiful landscape and nature around Nice. Juliette combines a history tour within the Port of Nice with a super pittoresque walk along the coastline to Villefranche and spreads her sparkling passion for the mediterranean Sea and It's inhabitants in such a ravishing way, you don't notice you where just spending almost 3 hours with her. I learned at lot and am totally inspired. Best thing to do in Nice!

Ce fut une expérience autant étonnante qu'enrichissante ! J'ai pu découvrir Nice sous un angle nouveau et j'ai beaucoup appris, notamment sur l'impact du microplastique ou encore sur l'écosystème de la Posidonie. Cette découverte n'aurait pas été la même sans Juliette, une guide autant passionnée qu'intéressante et drôle !! Je recommande vraiment cette activité aux amoureux de la mer mais aussi aux gens curieux tout simplement ! Merci encore Juliette, ce fut un réel plaisir !

Une expérience formidable qui m'a permis de découvrir la ville de Nice sous un nouvel angle. Juliette a su prendre le temps de nous expliquer en quoi la protection de la bio-diversité marine est si importante.
