Things to do in the French Riviera can come with a lot of zeroes behind them and multiple dollar signs in front, but not every visitor has to garrote his wallet the minute he gets off the plane.

Although the all-night nature of the nightlife might make it difficult to get up in the morning, snoozing the day’s things to do away only means missing out on some magnificent beaches, landmark resorts, endless shopping, and star-powered people-watching at the plazas and sidewalk cafés.

Both private and public beaches in the French Riviera offer all kinds of water activities and outdoor sports, as well as amenities like umbrellas, lounge chairs, and beachside food and cocktail service.

Happy hours in the sand lead naturally to shopping, another exercise in luxury as scores of upscale shops just off the beach offer everything from furs to chic club attire perfect for that next big night on the town.
