  • Very nice sandy beach. Family friendly due to the shallow water. Plenty of showers to clean salty water after a swim. Good restaurants in walking distance. And extremely cheap public beach front...

  • This beach is huge, very long, so there is always a spot for you unlike the beach to north! It also has a much prettier view of antibes and the whole cap in my opinion!

  • I went on Saturday and the beach was clear and nice. By Monday, the water was filled with so much trash and plastic that it was like a sewage plant. I’m hoping it’s a one-off. Otherwise, the view of the old town is amazing and the facilities are great. Definitely gets crowded but that’s to be expected. Lots of sand and good entrance with not too many stones. Update: checked back after 3 weeks and it still looks like the Pacific Garbage Patch.
  • Relaxed here for hours. Can be overcrowded at peak hours but surely you can find a spot. Whole lot of people but worth it 🏖️🌊
  • Nice little beach in Antibes. Gets crowded later, but it is perfect for a very early swim in the morning. It is shallow with sand and has some sea weed inside, so not the cleanest given it is a small bay. But it is usually less windy so not so agitated and it is seriously full of fish around the weed! So this is a plus if you swim with goggles... Plus, it has a great view to old Antibes! Plus, it has public showers!
  • The beach is beautiful albeit busy in the high season. The water is quite murkey. A thick layer of oily sunscreen is floating on it. I suppose due to the shape of the bay the water stays inside and the dirt cannot go out. Perhaps it’s a better place to go during spring or September. Or people could put on environment friendly sunscreen and after swimming…
  • Gorgeous beach with clean sand and water. Amazing view for walk, comfortable benches for sitting and relaxing. Perfect for families!
