Yachting town of Antibes

I love all things boats – if you’ve read my previous posts, you’ll get the hint… I mean even all my clothes are navy, shades of blue and red… So when I arrived in Antibes, I was delighted!

Getting there from Nice is super easy – it’s a direct train and it’s relatively cheap. The station is about a 10-15min walk to the town centre and you pass by the port/harbour. As I was walking along the harbour, I was in awe of all the beautiful yachts! and surprisingly, they mostly had English flags, clearly all holidayers… As I explored the harbour, I decided that going on a yachting holiday in the south of France is definitely going on my bucket list. The boats were oh so so nice! In the distance you can see a fortress atop a small hill – I was planning on going over there to explore but I got slightly sidetracked by all the boats…

After the harbour, I randomly made my way over to the town centre and came across the town market which was buzzing! There was mainly fresh produce – I bought a punnet of cherries and weaved my way through the markets…

Next, I walked along the coastline and came across a beach. I heard ALOT of German and English being spoken (which to be honest surprised me!). There were alot of families in Antibes, it gave me the impression that things were alot slower here and way more quiet – ideal for families…

Antibes is definitely worth the trip – I think next time I go to Cote d’Azur, I will stay in this town. Such a nice vibe and less crowded… (also, probably alot cheaper…!)
