While Muslim tourists will not be able to find prayer facilities at the Boulevard de la Croisette, they will be able to find plenty of open space for them to offer their prayers. However, during particular seasons and weekends, when the promenade gets crowded, Muslim visitors can then ask to be guided to the nearest mosque or prayer room to the promenade.
There are plenty of amazing restaurants located on the Boulevard de la Croisette. These establishments may however not be Halal. Since Cannes does have a few Halal restaurants, Muslim tourists can ask for directions to the closest one to the promenade, or they can dine at one of the restaurants at the promenade after making sure the items they order do not consist of non-Halal ingredients.
