Port du Beal - Aeroport Cannes Mandelieu

An exceptional location

Located just between cannes and mandelieu, Port abri du Béal, the only port on the riviera that is both a river port and maritime port, is ideally situated. Almost as soon as you set sail, the coves of l’estérel and the lérins islands - two of the region’s most beautiful landscapes - are already in sight. Anchor in one of these divine settings and make the most of an unforgettable day at sea, bathed in sunlight, without a care in the world...

However, its location is not Port abri du Béal’s only asset - far from it! Tucked into a haven of greenery, alongside a famous golf course and a vast sandy beach, you could hardly ask for a better environment. It is also easy to access from the a8 motorway, which runs just a few minutes away from its moorings. Finally, it is fully secure and largely privatised for its members. A host of benefits that make leisure boating truly enjoyable!

Port abri du Béal accommodates boats up to 10 metres long in its maritime part. The size limit is 8 metres for berths in the river area.

An original concept combining a maritime port, river port and dry port

Created in 1981 at the mouth of the river after which it was named, Port abri du Béal offers pleasure boaters 106 sea berths and just over 180 spaces in the river area. Its status as a shelter means its maritime part can only operate from april to october. However, it provides its guests with a permanent, all-year-round solution, by accommodating boats temporarily in the river area or at its dry port. The latter includes various off-season stowage areas for boats on trailers, and a hangar with fifty or so spaces.

The 2000-square metre hangar concept offers an annual subscription that includes: the dry port service, in a ventilated hangar under permanent surveillance, and a space in the water during the summer months.

Security, rigour and respect for nature

Port abri du Béal is the nautical counterpart of its close neighbour, cannes mandelieu airport, a benchmark airport in the field of private aviation. Naturally, it has adopted the values and priorities of its neighbour. Offering its customers full peace of mind, and guaranteeing a secure environment for their property, are just two examples... The site is under cctv surveillance 24/7, and access to car parks and the slipway is exclusively reserved for members. Quality of service is another priority... Along with environmental protection. Port abri du béal is committed to a sustainable development approach, and encourages its customers to be part of the solution, for example by sharing good practices and providing waste collection equipment.
