I don't think you could do much at the lighthouse itself, but it's located on top of a hill, with a beautiful view over the coast. I also liked that when travelling elsewhere in the Riviera (such as Nice) you could see the lighthouse blinking away in the distance in Antibes.

If you are coming to Antibes or Juan les Pins you most go to the light house, you can go by road or take the old romain road by foot. A bit of a challenge by great reward at the end, do not forget your camera !!

We saw the lighthouse each evening, and I wanted to see if we could get there. I decided to walk up hill, but you can also get there by car. The view is fantastic and you can also visit the little chapelle and buy an icecream at the small restaurant on top.

Like any viewing point (review about this rather than the lighthouse itself adjacent) if ou go on a cloudy ,Misty or rainy day there will be little to see. On a clear day like when we went the view is stunning. You can stand at viewing point by the church / chapel which has vista pointing out what can see... More

After a long walk up to Le Phare, was disappointed with it but the view was pleasant. If you walk up the signs are not well described. There was just pictorial images of a walker, to indicate walking track. There was no sign for Le Phare

I'm an avid lighthouse enthusiast, back home, I almost visited all the popular lighthouses in east coast from the oldest to the best one, this one is just ordinary but different in style.

A nice walk up the hill from Blvd. du Cap if you want to exercise, also by car parking is possible. On a nice day you have a panoramic view of Antibes since it is the highest point of Cap D'Antibes. One would be able to see the blue Mediterranean between the trees on both side. The chapel is renovated... More

Perhaps it's because the sky was pretty hazy the day we were there, and perhaps it's because the bushes and shrubs were so overgrown, but we really couldn't get excited about the view from up here. It should have been spectacular, but we were left feeling deluded at how little we could see. sad face.

A few years ago this place was a wonderful area to visit as the church, full of memorabilia from the old sailing community, and the lighthouse were open to the public. Unfortunately the church is closed for renovations and has been for some time. The old lighthouse is now for the sole use of military personnel and the cafe serves... More
