The beach at Vieil Antibes and Port Vauban: Plage de La Gravette

The Old Antibes beach which small, sandy, pleasant (but can be crowded), faces west into the sun. What is particularly nice about the beach is that it is sheltered from waves by a small breakwater and this enclosure makes it particularly safe for children.

Antibes Plage du Ponteil and Plage de La Salis

The Plage du Ponteil and Le Salis beach is another 1.5 km further on - good, very big and crowded in the very height of season.

Here's the best place nearby to buy beach toys, swim rings and air mats

Plage du Ponteil: the bay has breakwaters so the water is very safe.
