Cagnes-sur-Mer is nice enough, with good swimming on the beach. You have a train station with direct trains to Nice/Cannes/Monaco.

I have only experienced crime once on the Cote d'Azur - on New Years Eve - and usually it is a pretty safe area. Cagnes-sur-Mer is smaller than Nice, too, so with more locals.

The whole of the Riviera is quite expensive compared to, say, Brittany with prices comparable to Paris.

I stayed in the perched village, Haut de Cagnes, last year and it was wonderful. The beach resort is OK, it has suffered a bit from town expansion without much planning so it sprawls a bit. The beach part is really Cros de Cagnes, then Cagnes sur Mer is the main town, and Haut de Cagnes is the perched village. I liked it well enough to go back some time.
