Public beaches in Cote d'Azur

I keep hearing that good beaches like Paloma and Beaulieu-sur-Mer have their public sections - does that mean those sections will also have toilets, changing rooms etc? I would be staying in Nice, so I am thinking of taking a train to these places and changing at the beach. Will that be possible without shelling out 20-30 euros to the hotels on these beaches?

Many thanks,

Public beaches tend not to have changing rooms unless they are semi-private/run by the municipality , but they almost always have public toilets in the vicinity .

The vast majority of people arrive at a beach with swimsuit on under their clothes and just use their towel as a cover up when changing after a swim. No one is looking anyway, we all have our good bits, bad bits and private bits.

I'm not a huge fan of paloma beach as a beach in summer if there are a lot f boats in since there is a constant bussing of the shuttle boat to go and pick people up , though i quite like tramping about there on nice days in winter but there is a shower and toilets on the public side

. I prefer the beach to the left of the port of st jean or some of the other small public beachs on the cap

the beaches explained here-


There are showers and toilet at beaulieu, plage des fourmis public area
