Antibes Harbor

Antibes is the small town squished between Nice and Cannes that serves as a backup port for those who can’t find a place to moor their yacht in Cannes. Okay, this might not be totally true, but Antibes is famous for “Billionaire’s Bay,” a bay that should require no explanation further than its title. 

Beyond being one of the world’s most valuable parking garages, Antibes is home to several other interesting attractions. The Picasso Museum houses one of the most prolific collections of the artist’s work. If that doesn’t interest you, enjoy a lengthy pre-game at the Absinthe museum before checking in. Pro-tip: it becomes increasingly easier to find cubism less-boring once you’re unable to walk, let alone see, straight. 

Finally, just like everywhere else in the Southwestern portion of the French Riviera, Antibes attracts tourists during the summer season with its picturesque beaches. The town boasts 48 beaches along its coastline, most of which are tucked underneath a quilt of imported sand. Mooch off of the money people spent to put it there and take a day trip to Antibes. You’ll escape the crowds of both Cannes and Nice without having to separate yourself from the sand or the ocean.
