(340+ reviews on the web)
Lighthouse
Hike or drive to Garoupe Lighthouse (Phare de la Garoupe), the old lighthouse of Antibes, for panoramic views of the French Riviera and beyond. The lighthouse itself is not open to visitors, but pack a picnic or grab an ice cream from the vendor on top of the hill and admire the view of the ocean. Visit the small chapel located next to the lighthouse with colorful offerings placed there by local seamen. The hike up is strenuous and involves many stairs; bring water and note that it can get very hot. Garoupe Lighthouse (Phare de la Garoupe) is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Antibes Edition.

  • By car or even on foot, you can climb to the lighthouse (which cannot be visited) and have a wonderful view to Nice and Antibes, the Bay, the mountains. Nearby, the beautiful Garoupe chapel dedicated to seafarers. The Interior is moving; Unfortunately the chapel that was once open at any time is more accessible than when the masses (it is understandable why...).

  • Go to the lighthouse of Garoupe is first a very pleasant walk. the easiest way is from the beach of Salis and ride through the Woods the way to Calvary. It climbs well but not for long. We arrive at the orientation table and, the view is amazing especially the winter. We have a panoramic view of the entire coast, l back country and the unique Mercantour. the chapel recently renovated with all its marine ex-votos is very interesting. must ride on the Riviera
