The lighthouse is owned by the government and still in use! You can't go inside but is till cool to see. It is fun to stand in antibes in the evening and watch it's light go round and round!

On top of the world!

The biggest disappointment with the highest point around Antibes where you can see Cannes on the west and Nice off to Italy on the east is the memory of being on top of the lighthouse before they closed it! I want to cry every time I hike up there with the latest visitor having to explain in frustration that the view from the top is similar to being on the hill above Nice, at Eze, or at the Jardin Exotic in Monaco. But if you have never been on the top of the lighthouse you might not cry about it. Enjoy instead!

Spectacular Views Antibes

This church and lighthouse are on the top of a mountain, you will see an extraordinary view of Antibes and Nice.
It is a place to be thankful, in the past Mariners use to come here to give thanks.
We came by car.

Nice Quaint & Tranquil Place - Astounding Views
Jun 2019 • Friends
Definitely make time to go atop this place if only for five minutes - it's worth the visit.

We drove up and were behind and exotic cars rally who were also making their way to the top and parked their vintage Ferraris by the lighthouse.

The views are amazing to take a few selfies and an capture a postcard-like photo.

A beautiful and peaceful spot with views of the Cote D’Azur

A beautiful and peaceful spot to escape the sometimes overwhelming coast. The views are amazing and there’s a lovely small cafe serving local simple food, coffee etc. If you stop here you might just stay for the day!

A challenging walk up, which can be avoided if you have a car

We walked up here on our first day with no real preconceived ideas. We were grateful for the cafe where we enjoyed a glass of wine. The views are good and the paths are quite uneven.

The light house is a great location for a excellent view of some of coast line and in land around Antibes, you can drive there or by foot by le chemin des martires.
Great sailors church on the top to visit, recommended to go there.

Great Views and Photo Ops
Jul 2018 • Solo
I visited the Garoupe Lighthouse (Phare de la Garoupe) in July 2018. There are two ways to reach it. There is a walking trail with many steps but I decided to pass on that. Instead, I took the road that cars use to drive up to the lighthouse. I think the street names are Bacon, Aimee Bourreau, and Rue de la Phare. Along the way, there are many fancy houses and signs that say "Chien Lunatique" (lunatic dog) or "Chien Mechant" (mean dog). Anyway, I reached the lighthouse after a walk uphill of about 20 minutes. The view of Antibes and even Nice in the distance was spectacular. You can only photograph the lighthouse from the outside. There is also a very nice church which I visited.

It is a beautiful walk up the hill from the old town of Antibes. Actually a walking trail caught my eye and it turned out to have the stations of the cross. Very quiet and nice walk to the top.

Lovely walk from old town to it. Very steep the last bit. Worth it all. Stations of the cross all up the hill. Pity lighthouse is closed. Stunning views.
