(CNN)   Shhh. Don't tell anybody about this secret stretch of French coast that's "nicer than Nice." Wouldn't want it swarming with undesirable tourists or anything. Let's just keep it between you, me, and CNN's home page   (cnn.com) divider line

Nice is a great city but their beach sucks. More rocks than a granite quarry. The ones down the coast are better.

If it does not have luxury shopping and the scumbag wealthy don't all flock to it... it's probably awesome.

I read "stretch" as "stench."

Is that what I really think of the French?

All nice beaches are eventually ruined by people. See: Las Caletas in Puerto Vallarta.

I lived in Southern France for a while, there are a lot of places along the coast that are nicer than Nice.

I'm still surprised that many people do not understand how nudity is accepted in Europe. So... at least I know where I am headed next year. That's my point.

As did I. And went one step further wondering, "what the hell is subby's problem with french toast?"

I also thought that, and then assumed that they were talking about Nice French toast, which I figured was a Target store brand.

"Nicer than Nice" isn't a high bar. Cannes and Monaco are much better.

They're just grooming naive tourists to join the Cathars in the dualism soup that includes Bogomils, Gnostics and Manicheans.  St Augustine was a Manichean before he reinvented the Catholic church.  He also liked hippos.  That's Bogomils not Bogomips (old Linux heresy).

Whenever my wife and I spot a fatty on the beach we say "is there a marine biologist?" (A George Costanza reference)

I didn't see a single McDonald's, Wendy's or even a Pizza Hut.  How the hell can anyone think that Hicksville is any good?
 
2022-07-07 2:04:20 PM  
It's nice to be nice to the Nice.
 
2022-07-07 2:12:09 PM  
I was going to say that most of the coastline is nice than Nice, but now I know that it's the beach I should focus on. At least you don't track boulders into the Hotel.

And yet it still stinks of stinky cheese and hairy non-bathing women.

It's a secret to everybody!

I did too. Glad I'm not the only one, that made me laugh!

I read "coast" as "toast" and now I want some Nice French toast.

YouTuber Mikey Chen found the best buffet in the world in Narbonne, Les Grands Buffets.  For about half the cost of a Vegas buffet, you can eat all sort of fresh seafood caught that morning.  Plus, a French dessert buffet that would make Pavarotti cry uncle.  That, plus not being overrun by tourists would make it top destination.

It's not that nice. It likes like the pictures come out as shiatty HDR.

They aren't nice if they aren't from Nice, France. Otherwise they're just sparkling friendlies.

Cadaqués in Catalonia is a great Costa Brava town. The drive there from Narbonne or Barcelona is easy.
Wish I were there instead sweltering under the heat dome covering central Texas...

Can confirm. Recently did Malgrat to Girona and a bunch of the beaches in-between.

I had fun visiting the Cinque Terre (sp) in Italy about two decades ago.  But once you're in the guidebooks, word gets around.

Is it nicer than Subby's niece?

As someone who loved France for close to 20 years. Don't go anywhere in the South of France in July or August. 2 lane highways everywhere you want to go into town? It may take an hour to go to go 300 yards. You want to go there go in September. The Med is still warm, it's cooler, and the French, are for the most part back to work and school, but things are still open like it was summer.
