Reached from the harbour, La Gravette beach, shaded by the ramparts when the sun drops behind the roofs, is a sandy beach protected from the wind and the swell. There is a surveillance and emergency post.

PONTEIL AND SALIS BEACHES
Leaving Old Antibes towards Cap d’Antibes are two long sandy beaches, Ponteil and Salis, which are perfect for young children because the water is shallow. A large car park, a sailing school and more importantly, access for people with disabilities, allows everybody to enjoy the simple pleasure of going to the beach. Both beaches have surveillance and emergency post, showers and toilets.

CAP D’ANTIBES’ COVES AND SMALL BEACHES
In the south and on the west coast of Cap d’Antibes (going towards Juan-les-Pins), small, charming and completely unspoiled beaches await you… sometimes hidden and private, bring your diving mask and snorkel and go explore the sea bed. But take care as not all these beaches are supervised.
The favorite spot of our two teens : Billionaire’s Bay (La Baie des Milliardaires) in Cap d’Antibes.
A small cove of pebbles down a path and some rocks to dive.
Long only accessible by boat, the Baie des Milliardaires beach in Cap d’Antibes is now accessible to everyone by a small path (since June 2011).
This pebble beach (relatively large) is in a magical environment between dense vegetation and Cape rock.
For swimming, we advise you to use shoes (large rocks in the water, difficult access, see photos).
Best way to go there is by bus (not easy to park).
