Together for eco-friendly tourism

All human activities have an impact on the ecological balance of our planet. Respect for the environment is nowadays a central issue. 

The Beau Rivage hotel has decided to go further and to commit itself to a "Green Key" certification process.

We would like to involve you in this approach to "Eco-Friendly" tourism

Why "Green Key"?

Developed in France since 1998, the Green Key label is the first Ecolabel for tourist establishments in France but also internationally. Renowned for its seriousness, the "Clef Verte" label guarantees that you will stay in an establishment that is committed to the planet through regular audits and controls, to enable the development of sustainable, ecologically virtuous and socially responsible tourism.

GOING GREEN IN NICE  

     By Velo with the cycle paths of Nice

The City of Nice and the Nice Côte d'Azur Metropolis have adopted a genuine cycling policy, based on a public transport development plan.

It is a great land for cycling. Its coastal roads offer a panoramic view of the entire Mediterranean, its hilly hinterland is very varied and its mythical passes have contributed greatly to the legend of the Tour de France and the Paris-Nice.

However, cycling is not just about outstanding athletes. Above all, it is an inexpensive and fast way of getting around that is good for your health and air quality. It is for all generations: enthusiasts and occasional cyclists, adults and children, seniors and people with disabilities, and even those who do not always have the means to do so. It is a source of sharing, social cohesion, good health and sustainable development.

Suitable for daily use, tourism and leisure, it is an essential tool for the ecological transition.
