Antibes has so many beautiful beaches, mostly sandy, both public and private! Many of you have been asking us for the best beaches in Antibes. Here is a list for you to choose from and discover the top beaches…

Plage de la Gravette

This beach is in the middle of the old town, sandy and wide! Perfect for a quick dip after our walking tour or electric bike tour as it is just next to where we finish our walking tours. This beach is close to those who are staying in Old Antibes! This beach is public so are free too bring your own picnic and drinks!! 

Plage de la Garoupe

This is one of the prettier beaches! It is located on Cap d’Antibes and is a soft, white, sandy beach with crystal clear water full of small boats. It is also an amazing place for snorkelers. Some say that sunbathing was born in this bay and it was here that 1920s power couple Gerald and Sara Murphy introduced their glamorous friends such as F. Scott Fitzgerald to the concept of tanning! Most part of the beach is private during summer time.

If you live in the Old Antibes take bus line 2 which runs from the Gare Routière to the Garoupe stop.
