The canyon of Barbaira is certainly one of the most beautiful canyon of the area.

It is not on the french riviera but just at the italian border close to the city of Vintimille. The name of the closest village is Rocchetta Nervina (Close to Dolce Aqua).

Only 45 mins drive from Nice, you’ll be amazing by the differences between Italian DolceVita and French Riviera.

Barbaira canyon has turquoise blue water like nowhere else, jumps, slides and abseiling. All you need, all you want for a canyoneering experience.

It’s a full day tour.
45 mins to walk up the canyon and a little bit more than 3 hours to get back down to the car.

To go further in the sport, I recommend the canyon of Courmes for the day also and more punchy.
You will find good information on the Barbaira Canyon on the Descente Canyon website.
As a reminder, in half a day you have the Canyon du Loup, the canyon of Cramassouri or the canyon of the Gours du Ray. If you want to explore the joys of canyoning a little more, go on a day-long canyon like Bollène, Riolan, Barbaira or Maglia.
For more informations about canyoning on the Alpes Maritimes, I suggest you to look at the leaflet Randoxygènes written by the Conseil Général des Alpes Maritimes (in french only) :
Randoxygene website for canyoning in the French Alps Maritimes

If you want to have a longer Italian experience you can plan to eat in one of the restaurants which are close to the car park.
