With an ideal geographic location situated half-way between Cannes and Monaco and a dynamic economy, St-Laurent-du-Var is a town geared for the future. The old part of the town has preserved its testimony of the part fundamentally linked to the Var. The sea remains its primary passion. It is reputed for the quality and quantity of water-sporting activities available, especially wind-surfing and is one of the most important pleasure boating harbours on the Côte d'Azur. Stretching along the seafront the " Promenade des Flots Bleus " is a pleasant place to stroll and has a buzzing night-life.
