Flying into Nice is great. The most common route is flying over the pink Esterel rocks, looking down on the harbours, beaches, islands and the blue sea. Spotting Cannes, Antibes, Villeneuve-Loubet, the hippodrome, Cros de Cagnes. Getting lower and lower till it feels like you’re skimming the waves…
That’s a great way to describe it, skimming the waves, it’s an exciting way to arrive.
I’d definitely recommend sitting on the left-hand side of the plane if you get the option, as that is the best side to see the wonderful view of the coast.
Keep your eyes peeled for the wave-like block of apartments in Villeneuve-Loubet Plage, next to the racetrack – quite a sight!
