The old town of Antibes is not far from the beach, and is a fantastic area to while away a few hours. A network of small streets and alleys is home to many charming shops and restaurants, where you can find traditional gifts and souvenirs or enjoy a café whilst watching the passers by. The covered Marché Provençale is a food lover’s paradise, with a multitude of stalls teeming with local produce, charcuterie, flowers and handicrafts.
Situated in the Baie de la Garoupe, the Le Pavillon beach is perfectly positioned as a start or finish point for the romantic walk around the stunning Cap d’Antibes. Le Chemin de Contrebandiers (the smugglers’ path) hugs the beautiful Riviera coastline, taking in the sights of the magnificent villas and the dazzling turquoise coves of the Mediterranean sea. The walk takes around 1.5 hours and you can return to the beach via the road.
Not far from Le pavillon beach, at the highest point of the Cap d’Antibes, lies the delightful old chapel of Nôtre Dame des Amoureux, as well as a powerful working lighthouse that warns boats away from the rocky coastline. The chapel is steeped in history, having been used as a place of worship since the Vth century, and has a collection of old paintings, statues and offerings to the saints. From up here, at the top of the Cap d’Antibes, you can enjoy a superb view over the surrounding bays and beaches of the Côte d’Azur, the Lérins islands and the old ramparts in the town of Antibes.
One of the other great opportunities available in Antibes is to rent a boat for a day and tour the beautiful coastline.
