Cannes: Gay and Lesbian

Pearl of the French Riviera

Cannes is a popular gay and lesbian destination. It is possible to stay in a hotel in Cannes that is exclusively for the gay community, and there are numerous bars and clubs to avail of. The tourist information office for Cannes will be able to provide you with various flyers on gay living on the Riviera. Le Zanzibar, located near the Palais des festivals, is known as the 'must-go' gay bar in Cannes, and has a friendly relaxed atmosphere during the day before transforming into a more 'club-like' vibe at night.
