Antibes the perfect coastal destination!
Crowned by a citadel cutting an imposing figure against the backdrop of the French Alps, Antibes Juan-les-Pins is a corner of paradise, ideally located at the heart of the French Riviera between Nice and Cannes. Bright sky, azure sea, dazzling sunshine 300 days per year… The town has earned the right to fly the pavillon bleu flag for its high quality bathing water. Visitors are spoilt for choice between water skiing or parasailing, diving or fishing, sailing or bathing…
Antibes Juan-les-Pins is home to one of the longest coastlines in France, spanning 25km. As well as the many sandy beaches, hidden creeks lie in the woodland of Cap d'Antibes and the town has five harbours including Port Vauban, the biggest yachting harbour in Europe.
Open all year round, the Picasso museum is located next to the cathedral, a stone's throw from the Provencal market bursting with colour and fragrance, and a short walk from the flowery paths of the Safranier district, at the heart of Old Antibes.
Antibes Juan-les-Pins hosts a wide variety of annual events including the sailing regatta Voiles d'Antibes, the Antibes Yacht Show and of course the famous Jazz à Juan festival in mid-July, which began back in 1960 making it the longest running jazz festival in Europe.
