Escape civilization along this surprisingly wild, circular 5km coastal path that winds around Cap d’Antibes. Start at Garoupe Beach and pass rocky cliffs, high over the crashing waves.

Logistics

Price: Free
Minimum age: Any
Age suitable: 13+
When: All year around
Duration: 2 hours

Getting there & doing it

If you don’t have a car, you can take a taxi or local bus the 15 minutes from Antibes port to Garoupe beach, where the walk starts from the car park. You could book in for a pricey but unforgettable lunch in season at Grill Eden Roc, the only part of the mythic Hotel du Cap Eden Roc that is open to the public.

When to do it

Because the path edges over cliffs and can be slippery (marked with Danger de Morte signs), it’s closed during bad weather, and is best for adults. The best walking months in the region are March to October.
