A brilliant, circular Cap d’Antibes walk
Plage de la Garoupe, Cap d’Antibes in autumn, with the pleasant and surprisingly inexpensive cafe Le Rocher. Book it if you want lunch there!
If you’re travelling from outside Antibes the trickiest part of this walk is getting to the normal launch pad, Plage de la Garoupe.
If travelling by car it’s best to avoid Juans-les-Pins as that overbuilt, overcrowded town gets very stuffed in anything outside winter. Approaching via Antibes’ Plage de la Salis is the easiest route and the car park beside Garoupe beach is huge.
Alternatively there’s a good value bus from Antibes (called Envibus) that costs just 1 euro to board. It runs from Antibes bus station (Gare Routière Antibes) to Eden Roc hotel about every half hour except Sundays when it may appear every 2/3 hours if you’re lucky.
Get off at Fontaine stop, shortly before the Eden Roc hotel. Walk back and fork right to get to Plage de la Garoupe or go on a few metres and fork left to reach Villa EilenRoc Museum and the dark, narrow path that heads down beside EilenRoc gates (that always seem to be closed! ).
Alternatively hire a bike in Antibes or Juans-les-Pins and cycle to Garoupe easily. It’s very flat and French drivers are well used to giving cyclists lots of space, it’s in their blood to respect bikes.
