ANTIBES: Old Antibes Town Gravette | Ponteil and Salis Plage | Juan Les Pins | Garoupe | Special Places | Even Eden
where you can truly relax!
The Old Antibes beach which small, sandy, pleasant (but can be crowded), faces west into the sun. What is particularly nice about the beach is that it is sheltered from waves by a small breakwater and this enclosure makes it particularly safe for children.
The Plage du Ponteil and Le Salis beach is another 1.5 km further on - good, very big and crowded in the very height of season.
Here's the best place nearby to buy beach toys, swim rings and air mats
Plage du Ponteil: the bay has breakwaters so the water is very safe.

Normally there's much more space than in the August photograph!
Juan les Pins is on the opposite side of the peninsular and the beach there is huge and popular and faces into the hot Sirocco wind. There are lots of placesHere selling beach toys

Just imagine surveying this view towards Nice at Easter
