“Absolutely beautiful walk. Highly recommended.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

Myself and a friend did this walk in just over an hour, with stops in between. It is truly stunning, uninterrupted views of the coastline, beautiful vegetation and swimming spots along the way. We started at the Eden Roc end and made our way around to the public part of Plage Keller where we finished with a cooling swim. I would definitely recommend sturdy footwear as the path is quite rocky in places and bottles of water to keep yourself hydrated - we ran out halfway and were parched by the end.

Directions: take the number 2 bus rom the main bus station in Antibes, and get out at Fontaine on Cap d'Antibes. Follow the signs for the Eden Roc villa down Avenue Mrs. L.D. Beaumont and then Chemins des Douaniers all the way to the gates to the Eden Roc villa. The entrance to the trail is to the right of the villa and if you want a swim before you start, take the first right off the path down to a small swimming cove which is absolutely gorgeous. Rocky beach, but very private and secluded.

“No wonder its highly rated”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

After a relaxing swim in the plage de salis, we walked about in this area for a good couple of hours..It was late afternoon, started drizzling & the views of the ocean and the ocean side villas are simply beautiful! And the neighbourhood is so calm too..
Its a pretty long walk and I suppose its a good idea to use the local bus to get back to Antibes main bus station/ Gare SNCF (train station) , which is what we did!
Antibes, like most towns/ villages in cote d'Azur is charming & beautiful & I look forward to returning here soon!

“Great Day Outing from Nice, France”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

From Nice you can take a train or a bus to Antibes. Only 1 Eur for the bus ride from Nice.
From the Bus station in Antibes you take their number 2 bus. The last stop, from the bus station on this line is where you can pick up the trail. Sorry can't remember the stop name. But it is on the "CAP" as they call it.

An amazing walk on, over and under cliffs, around rocks and along the sea coast.

Most of the trail is concert and stone, but you need good walking shoes. Parts of the trail have a wire fence to keep you and the family from falling into the ocean some 50 feet below.

We had a great day. Take towels, bathing suits and water shoes. If you are a little adventurous you can find some areas were you can swim in the crystal clear water. The rocks are "softer" in the water because of the seaweed growth.

Well worth the time to go and see. Added some pictures to give you a sense of the place.

“Spectacular!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

Wonderful seaside walk way with beautiful views. Not to be missed! Make sure that you wear sneakers or other foot gear that's good for walking, as some stretches of the walkway were quite rough-essentially a jumble of stones.

“Nice trip. Fine views. Fresh air. A good workout”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

Practical tips: park in avenue André Sella, walk down towards Plage Keller and walk to the right, after 150 meters you will find the signs noting the start of the walk.. The times noted on the sign are not ambitious, we used 1hr 20m on what was marked as 1hr 50m. Wear shoes, not flipflops.

When heading back: take a right just before the Christies realtor for Avenue Gandolphe and you will walk right to your car. Do take a swim on the trip or on the public beach to the left of Plage Keller. If budget is no issue, check in on Plage Keller for a sunbed, full beach club service and a great lunch at Restaurant Ceasar.

And: the trip works fine with kids, just bring alot of water if the sun is up. Our youngest is 6, he did fine.
