I decided to make Antibes my home base for a trip to the Riviera as they have two beaches rated among the top "handiplages" in France and Plage du Ponteil is one of them. I could not have made a better choice. This is the...More

Sandy, clean beach right in the old town. A lovely view, calm water. Good for families. Teens enjoy it in the evenings.

One of the better beaches in the area. Beautiful views, not DIRECTLY on the road and it has a small, shallow protected bay to swim in with only the softest sand under your feet! Quite a small beach so best to go early.

We've spent years visiting the small cove beach down by the boats in harbour but this year we spent every day at this beach. We much preferred it as the water is shallow and beautifully clear. I spent the week snorkelling and watching the fish...More
