Nice is a large French city located on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. It is the fifth most populous city in France. Often referred to as Nice la Belle, the city is the capital of the Alpes-Maritimes département. Nice is also the second largest city in the Provence-Alpes-Cote d’Azur region.
The adjective nice is commonly used to talk about people, but there are some people who object to its use in general. When we say something or someone is nice, we are expressing appreciation for their thoughtfulness and goodwill. When we say something or say it’s nice of someone, we are showing them that we appreciate the effort they made. On the other hand, when we say something or someone is nice to us, we’re showing that we’re friendly.
The word nice can also mean kind. A kind action, such as holding a door for someone, is also nice. It saves the person time and is an act of kindness. However, there’s no rule that says that being kind and nice can’t be mutually exclusive. For example, a kind act is not necessarily a pleasant one, such as breaking bad news to a friend.
Nice has some stunning beaches. The Blue Beach, a private stretch of sand located on the Promenade des Anglais, is open all year round and offers water sports. There’s also a lounge bar and seafood restaurant. The other public beach is La Reserve, which is a pebble beach located east of Nice.
