Thehealth's port has two activities: it is a fishing harbour and a cruise port of calls.

There are still some fishermen along the quays and you can, by the way, admire the Mediterranean fishes: sea-daces, sea-breams, red mullets…

The tradition is always here: the « pointu » is the fishing boat you can see all along the Mediterranean coasts. Moreover, you can savour these greedy treasures coming from the sea in the restaurants along the sea front.

First cruise port of calls in France and fourth port in the Western Mediterranean sea, the harbour of Nice-Villefranche welcomes every year almost 250 000 passengers (English-speaking, Spanish, etc). The cruise is a tourist industry in full development. Some steamers carried out their first stop-over there, such as the Millennium (Celebrity cruises).
