“Great coast path”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

The preceding reviews are all accurate and give good advice. You would need to be a strong swimmer to get into the sea off the path but looked lovely if you can. Not suitable for bikers, disabled or elderly infirm as there are steps and steep stretches along this 2 hour walk. A fit and keen child over 6 could manage it. No benches or seats anywhere but plenty of rocks to sit on. You can start either end with free street parking either at Garoupe Beach or in Avenue Mrs Beaumont but all the facilities are at the Garoupe end. Good beach cafes for coffee, lunch or dinner before or after your walk. Or take a picnic and be the envy of other walkers as you perch enjoying the great views. The first stretch from Garoupe circumnavigates the Abramovitch villa as you can guess from the expensive fence and surveillance hardware. The other end comes out at the Eilenroc Villa and Gardens which looked worth a visit. Unfortunately it only opens on Wednesdays and Saturdays - par for the course in France as it is owned and run by the government. For walkers this is justifiably rated as the number one attraction in Antibes.

“Great view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Perfect way to explore cap d'Antibes. The day we visited it was sunny and hot, the sea perfectly blue and beautiful, so was the landscape. The water wasn't too cold for swimming (although in October), would recommend it for anyone going to cote d'Azur.

“nice walking place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Very good for a walk when having nothing else to do. The path is well done and the landscape is beautiful. No real beaches but there are some spots where you can get into the water and have a swim.

“scenic path - don't forget your camera”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

park at La Garoupe or along Beaumont Street and allow yourself 2 hours for the whole loop (the part on the path above the sea then the way back to your car on the street). no high heels and better sneakers than flip flops - the walk also on rocks. you can visit Villa Eileen Roc (and the gardens). or stop in front of it on the path to bathe in the sea (there are ladders in the rocks and a sunbathing platform - used to be the private beach of Eileen Roc).

“A good walk but over used”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

There is no doubt that this is a beautiful location and there is much to admire about the views from the path. If you are fit it's well worth doing but if you've got very young children or are quite old or a bit unsteady on your feet or even just wearing fashionably silly shoes you won't get very far; the path is narrow and rough in many places and you'll be dealing both oncoming walkers and overtakers going in your direction as well as slow coaches you'd like to get past for enough of the time that it'll feel like a bit of a social challenge as well as a physical challenge.
IMHO, the best time to try it is early or late in the day when there will be less folks competing for space, chattering noisily, or wandering on auto-pilot whilst glued to their cellphone / texting, yes really - even here!
Many people take along a picnic / packed lunch and there are lots of good spots for sitting and consuming your goodies with a stunning view including lots of handy benches (please take your wrappers / litter home with you as there are no waste bins provided) but be warned there are neither drinks vendors nor toilets along the route, so you need to take what fluid you need and then hold on to it past the end until you can reach a cafe or get back to your hotel.
