5 Of The Best Beaches In Antibes France
Beaches in Antibes France, Lying on one side of the Cap d’Antibes this city is old and famous for its culture and sightseeing but also for its beaches. On the other side of this peninsula lies Juan les Pins which is modern and famous for its nightlife! In between are the beaches and what gorgeous beaches they are! Mostly yellow sand but with a few pebbly spots, these beaches offer small coves and wonderful spots for snorkeling and most have good facilities to buy food, shower, rent loungers and find loos!
Here is our pick of the best beaches in and around Antibes.
1. Old Antibes Beach
This beach is always quite busy and as it’s small, it can feel rather crowded but it’s sandy and pretty with all the amenities you need. This is a sheltered beach with a ‘break water’ forming a secure swimming area making it a good beach for families with small children.
2. Plage du Ponteil
This is one of the main public beaches and it’s a large sandy beach close to the old town with good facilities like showers, loos, snack bars and disabled access.
This is a free beach and is a great spot to drink in the beauty of the French Riviera. You can hire sailing and jet skiing equipment here or take a kayak for a sunset paddle.
3. Plage du Buse, Roquebrune-Cap-Martin
This peninsula is only a 20 minute journey from Nice on the train and the Plage du Buse is to be found on the Le Corbusier path! It’s one of the least crowded beaches in the area and is very pretty offering clear water and a pebbly/sandy beach. No brollies for rent though but you can get snacks at the snack shack and star gazing at the luxurious villas makes up for the lack of facilities!
