With its 25km long littoral, Antibes Juan-les-Pins has many beaches. Not that wide, more or less long, sometimes hidden, shingle or sand, sunny or shady, open to the public with showers and restrooms, or private with restaurants and deckchairs... there is a beach for everyone.
The shingle beaches
At the East of Antibes, from La Brague area to the Square Castle, beaches are made from shingles carried there from and by the Var. The water is thus deep and fresh. It is advised to wear the proper shoes and to be extra vigilant toward your children. The beaches are supervised during summer, and equipped with showers and fast food.
The sandy beaches
Reached from the harbor, the Gravette beach, shaded by the ramparts, is a sand beach protected from the wind and the swell. There is a surveillance and emergency post.
Just at the exit of the Old Antibes, two long sandy beaches, the Ponteil beach and the Salis beach, are perfects for the youth thanks to the shallowness of their water. A large parking lot, a sailing school and more importantly, an access for handicapped persons, allow everybody to enjoy the simple pleasure of going to the beach. Both beaches have surveillance and emergency post, showers and restrooms.
In Juan-les-Pin, public beaches spread from the center of the town to the exit toward Golf-Juan. You will find surveillance and emergency posts, fast food, showers and restrooms.
Finally, the private beaches, that can be found everywhere in those areas, offers you to rent deckchairs and parasols, grab something to eat, before going for some fun nautical activities.
The coves and the small beaches of Cap d'Antibes
At the south and on the west coast of the Cap d'Antibes (when going to Juan-les-Pins), small, unspoiled and sometimes beaches are awaiting you. Bring your diving mask and your snorkel, and go explore the sea bed. But be careful, not all those beaches are supervised.
