The shopping center benefits from a unique seaside location, in a protected area of natural beauty called “Natura 2000.” Directly accessible from the beach and close to the famous Promenade des Anglais in Nice, CAP3000 is located five minutes from the International Airport of Nice Côte d’Azur, just twenty minutes from the Nice city center, and thirty minutes from Cannes and Monaco.

CAP3000 has a 135,000 sq feet² area, with more than three hundred shops and fifty restaurants, of which fifteen overlook the sea.

It offers iconic French brands and famous shops like Victoria’s Secret, Apple, Nespresso, Nike, the largest Zara in the region, and also the largest drugstore in Europe.

One place, many experiences

Renovated three times since its creation and inspired by the waves of the Mediterranean Sea, the shopping center offers many unique experiences for local customers and international tourists alike.

This creative new shopping space is sure to be a trendsetter in the Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur region. Thanks to this exciting space, CAPLovers can discover new brands that usually sell exclusively online.

In July 2021, CAP3000 revealed new features with the opening of the Corso, a premium and exclusive area dedicated to the most iconic luxury brands: Rolex, Cartier, Omega, Chaumet, Chopard, Christian Dior, Alain Ducasse…
