Located between Cannes and Nice on the beautiful Cote d’Azur, Antibes is a vibrant seaside town. One of the prettiest towns of the French Riviera, it features 16th century ramparts encasing its ancient old town with narrow, cobbled streets and pretty cafes and markets. The town also boasts the largest pleasure harbour in Europe, filled with luxurious superyachts.
On the far side of the town, golden sandy beaches are overlooked by the famous Cap d’Antibes. This wooded cape is dotted with stunning mansions and features pretty walking trails and spectacular sea views.
The area’s most well-known beach is probably Plage de la Gravette, a horseshoe-shaped stretch of sand set right in front of the old town. However, there are plenty more sand and pebble beaches to explore for swimming, water sports, and beachfront dining.
Formerly the home of Spanish artist Pablo Picasso, the town now boasts a museum dedicated to the painter set within Château Grimaldi. There is also a museum dedicated to another former resident – Napoleon; The Naval & Napoleonic Museum is located in view of a former weapons battery restored by the emperor himself.
