Plage de Ponteil

West of central Antibes, Ponteil beach is a long curve of silky, white sand that stretches about a kilometre from Royal Beach Restaurant in the east to the Antibes Yacht Club where you can rent kayaks and paddleboards or learn to sail. The next beach west is Plage de la Salis.

Plage de Ponteil

The bay is calm and sheltered from harsh winds by Old Antibes on one end and Cap d'Antibes several kilometres to the west. The water is shallow for quite a distance, making it a pleasant and safe beach for kids.

Along the beach runs a pedestrian promenade with tree-shaded benches. It's one of Antibes' most beautiful beaches and is entirely free. Lifeguards are on duty from mid-June to mid-September and the beach is handicapped accessible.

The only caveat is the cleanliness of the water. After several difficult years, Ponteil beach has been posting good results in 2019. (source:
