Favorite private beaches?

We're going to Nice for the 2nd time this year at the end of August/beginning of September and staying in Old Town.

I was just wondering which of the private beaches are peoples favourites and why? We chose one and went to it every time we went to the beach last time - the name escapes me but we chose it as it was cheapest and we were a bit skint last time :) This time we'd like to try a couple more of them but it'd be good to go in with some opinions on quality/staff/food etc!

Thanks in advance .....

Castel Plage and Hi Beach are my favourites.

The sun loungers, decor and "suntrap" of the Castel,

The food and service at Hi,

Now thats 5 recommendations already,

To be honest they are all very similar.

Excuse me for jumping in with a question about the private beaches.

Are these beaches located right in Nice along the Promenade?

We don't want to venture too far to find a private beach with lounge chairs during our stay in Nice so we don't have to sit on the rocks.

How much does it cost to access the private beaches?

They are all the way along the prom..

The price varies from 14e to 20e for the day, i think you can also buy half days for about 60% of a full day.
