Outdoor Activities

Walking: There are lots of lovely walks in and around Antibes. The Old Town of Antibes is a warren of narrow cobbled streets that slope gently up from the port behind the protective city walls. Follow the footpath that you can see from Plage de la Gravette that runs along the top of the city walls, along Promenade Admiral de Grasse, and skirts the edge of the old town. 

You'll come across Place du Révély, Chapelle du Saint-Esprit and a building that has housed a Cathedral, been a Grimaldi family palace and is the birthplace of Jaques Audiberti.. Dip into the narrow streets to find the old washhouse and the fountain of La Tourraque. Ask at the tourist information office for more details and a free map.

Water sports: Due to the calm seas of the French Riviera Coast, the local bays provide a perfect location for water sports. On a day with a breeze you may witness or join in with kite surfing, wind surfing, or sailing. Most of the beaches and local areas have a water sports centre, but for more information ask at the tourist information Office.

The local beaches of Antibes and the Cap d’Antibes are perfect for snorkelling, scuba diving and swimming. It is also possible to hire a pedalo with a waterslide on the back at some beaches.

Stand-Up paddle boards can be hired from Jean-Denis Mouchon - 06 18 08 35 10 www.paddlinginantibes-center.com email supantibes@gmail.com
