Plage de la Gravette


Entrance to Gravette beach

Plage de la Gravette is perhaps the most beautiful of the Antibes public beaches, discreetly tucked away behind the ramparts at the end of the port. With fine, white gravel and luminescent water, this idyllic beach attracts a loyal crowd of locals that just wouldn't be seen at any other beach.

For those living or staying in Old Antibes this is also the closest beach, perfect for a quick dip after shopping in Antibes' morning market. The sheltered cove is shallow and protected by a rocky breakwater. Parents need have no fear for their kids but serious swimmers may scrape their knees on the rocks just below the surface.

There are beach showers and lifeguards are on duty in July and August. After several years of pollution problems, 2019 has seen a clear improvement in the water quality here. For up-to-date information see

The closest parking is Parking Vauban at the port. Entrance to the beach is through the ramparts on quai Henri Rambaud.



As Gravette is a public beach, you're free to bring a picnic which you can round out at the kiosk serving snacks and cold drinks at the back of the beach.


Toilets are outside to the left of the entrance within the walls.
