Chilling out at Baoli Beach Club, Cannes

Just a short walk from our hotel on a clean, uncrowded beach with a view of the brilliant blue sea, cruise ships and beautiful people is Baoli Beach Club. With not much else planned and a chilled day stretching before us we decided to pop down there for lunch…

It wasn’t too noisy, just relaxed and laid back; exactly the kind of vibe that we were looking for.

Though the beach club is 1000 square metres and on the biggest pier of the Croisette, there was still an effect of intimacy on that pretty stretch of sand.

Cocktails Baoli Beach DSC_4733

Of course holiday cocktails were practically an necessity and it was a Rossini cocktail for me, a deliciously refreshing blend of champagne and fresh strawberries. Mr S chose a champagne Mojito to kick off our lunch.

With the day being an absolute scorcher over 30 degrees, we wanted to keep our choices very light, which was pretty easy with a choice of Mediterranean seafood on the menu.

I was really happy with my beautifully fresh starter of salmon tartare, the light flavours and textures being just what I was craving.

Mr S loved the beautifully crispy prawn rolls that he’d selected for his starter too.

Main course for him was a whole sea bass, a dish we ordered several times while on holiday but nowhere was it more perfectly cooked than at Baoli Beach club – though admittedly he looks a little angry!

Initially planning on only getting the crunchy Asian vegetables as a side dish, he of course got major food envy when he saw the fries on the table next to us and had to order them too!

As  I really couldn’t cope with too much food in that heat I ordered a small portion of maki rolls to follow my tartare and actually it all perfectly filled me up. I mean…I *might* have got frozen yoghurt afterwards but that definitely sent me over the edge!

Mr S and I loved Baoli Beach club, it was one of my favourite restaurants that we visited when we were in Cannes. I’d definitely recommend it for delicious and fresh food with a lovely chilled out vibe.

  • There’s always space for frozen yogurt! x

  • Looks like a great lunch – though you’re right, that seabass looks very angry!! And there’s always room for fro-yo!

  • Love your photos. I went to Cannes earlier in the year, but didn’t try this place. I could do with chilling out here right now!

  • Love these pictures Angie! Can’t remember which beach club I went to in Cannes a few years ago but this reminds me so much of it. Such a lovely place. Looks like you had a lovely time!

  • Well this is a lovely complete opposite to the evening at Baoli. Looks beautiful. I think setting etc really play such a huge part on our dining feelings. I choose al fresco always over eating inside if the weather is decent!
