A popular walk for both locals and visitors, Le Sentier du Littoral, Cap d'Antibes is a narrow coastal trail that hugs the water, affording incredible, unobstructed views of the sea. The path is clear and well-marked with stairs to guide you and a small metal guard rail. It's a rocky path, but according to visitors, it's one you can't miss.   

To access the trail, start at Plage de la Garoupe. From there, the trail is clearly marked. Along the way, there are several places to stop and sit on the rocks to enjoy a drink or picnic. To make the trek easier, heed the advice of past visitors and wear sturdy shoes. Some reported only needing an hour for the hike, but others suggested setting aside 90 minutes to allow yourself to stop and admire the views. The trail is open year-round, every day and is free to access, but it may be closed on especially windy days. Also, since there is little shade along the trail, you'll want to wear sunscreen and a hat and avoid the mid-day heat.
