We chose a day after a huge storm, and the air was clear, the skies were blue. We walked up through Bois de la Garoupe (about 30 minutes) and were delighted with the views from the chapel next to the lighthouse. It was the only day we saw the mountaintops, and they were covered in snow - in June!

You cannot actually get into the lighthouse or see any working thing, but it is a good walk from the beach area, a great opportunity to see the surrounding area and all it costs is time and effort. bring water or drinks however since there are no shops up there...

The lighthouse is attractive but scaffolding prevented a really good view. The view from the lighthouse area is astonishing. One can see all the way to Nice!

If you are like me, a person who loves long walks and beautiful scenery, then I would highly recommend this place to visit. If you walk from Antibes, it will take you about 30 minutes to get there and while you are there, you will have a fantastic view of the Cote d'Azur and the Cap d'Anbites magnificent coast.

Absolutely stunning views and quaint little church. Also when you drive up there you get a real insight into wealthy Riviera living.

Lovely place to go and see the view of Antibes - you can even see some of les iles de lerins from here. Also some places to walk around through the woods here although I've not tried it, and a chappel at the top.

It is a fairly easy walk or drive up to this fantastic view point with panorama views! There is a paved road that leads up to it as well as a cobble stone walking road. It is a great place for a pick nick by the church... I like to finish my run around cap d'Antibes by running up to... More

Bring your camera because the views are spectacular. Be sure to take a look inside the church - it is half museum of a very special local kind.

We often head up to the the Phare, usually at sunset and are always enchanted by the view. We sometimes drive, but as mentioned by other reviewers, it is also accessible by a range of routes and paths. Sometimes we buy an ice cream at the little kiosk, whose opening times are quite random! You can see the sun set... More
