Beach
“Just outside Antibes, the sandy beaches of la Garoupe are filled with locals and tourists alike. It is not surprising: the sea is warm, beaches boast soft white sand, and the views are absolutely breathtaking. Note that until mid-October, most of the beaches are private, with a few free public ones. There is plenty of free parking in the streets around la Garoupe, however, it can get very busy in summer. Fun fact: taking selfies is not allowed at Garoupe Beach in order to encourage visitors to enjoy the moment. Driving distance from Cabris: 45 min ”
