Scenic bus trip

The best way to visit the lighthouse is on an open top tour bus, the trip takes in the famous Hotel Du Cap.

This is a nice little lighthouse that sits on a hill so it can be seen from far out at sea. It is unusual to me to see a little chapel tucked right up next to it, it was a cute little place.

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.
