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!
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.
The start of Cap d’Antibes’ Sentier Littoral, the coastal path.
One can whinge about French efficiency in some areas but organisation of sentiers (paths/trails) is not one of them. The network of marked and maintained hiking trails throughout the country is superb and this one or two hour walk is a good example.
Villa EilenRoc and an alternative start to the Cap walk, heading right. This is also the end of the coastal walk, though travelers will still need to cross the Cap via roads to reach Plage de la Garoupe and their transport. The Fontaine bus stop is nearere than Garoupe.
The walk is not all flat but the elevation changes by little more than 30 metres, safety rails are in place where waves might drag away hikers (very rare outside winter) and the usual yellow splashes mark the route though hardly necessary considering that the alternatives are climbing a wall or plunging into the sea.
Apart from Plage de la Garoupe at the start of the path there are no beaches, cafés and almost no shade on the way.
