Beach
“The chic beaches and restaurants of La Garoupe on Cap d'Antibes are mostly private from Easter through September but there is a small public portion on La Garoupe where you can enjoy the fabulous setting for free. Or, enjoy a more elegant experience. Nestled in a small cove on Cap d’Antibes, this is the prettiest beach on this stretch of coast. Silky-soft white sands sloping into crystal clear waters, lots of little boats at anchor and the rocky headland a snorkeler’s heaven to explore. Unfortunately, most of the sand is private during the summer, meaning that it’s quite a posh affair. ”

Park
“C’est en 1857 que Gustave Thuret, botaniste français, découvre le Cap d’Antibes, presqu’île très sauvage. Il acquiert 5 hectares de terrain, y construit une villa et y fonde un magnifique « jardin d’essais ». Offerte à l’Etat par ses héritiers, la propriété est aujourd’hui gérée par l’INRA. Sa superbe collection d’arbres et d’arbustes de climat subtropical et méditerranéen et son exceptionnel potentiel végétal servent notamment à la pédagogie et à la diversification des espèces ornementales cultivables sur le littoral méditerranéen et lui ont fait gagner le label « Jardin remarquable ». ”

Church
“The light house of la Garoupe and the little church Notre Dame de la Garoupe is a nice spot for the panorama of Antibes and Juan les Pins. You have a good walk to reach it, you can even walk through a little wood and once up there the view is beautiful. The church is dedicated to the sailors and is decorated with plenty of little boats. You have a cafe on the spot itself where you can even have short eats.”
