One of our favourite spots around Antibes, not on "Esterel" level for clearness of water and space, but easier to access and very good for where it is, great food cabins at regular intervals with fair prices and surprisingly tasty food. Disabled water sports and...More

Sandy, clean beach right in the old town. A lovely view, calm water. Good for families. Teens enjoy it in the evenings.

One of the better beaches in the area. Beautiful views, not DIRECTLY on the road and it has a small, shallow protected bay to swim in with only the softest sand under your feet! Quite a small beach so best to go early.

Gets the sun in the morning and late evening, this is a lovely place to swim or just paddle about. Volley ball pitch for locals adds an evening entertainment to this unspoilt paradise.

We found this beach a lovely sandy unspoilt area with very calm waters protected from the usual breeze. The water stays shallow a long way out and is ideal for children. We visited in September and there is no lifeguard on duty, parking charges at...More
