If there’s one thing that the commune of Antibes-Juan les Pins does particularly well is its beaches. Antibes sits at the end of the long sweep of the Bay of Angels, which marks the end of the pebbled beaches and the beginning of the soft white sandy stretches. As such, Antibes-Juan les Pins is a very popular beach destination, marrying the old world charm of narrow streets and medieval towers with sandy shores, clear waters, beach clubs, restaurants and watersports.
