Antibes (Port Vauban) is an ancient town standing on a promontory which separates the harbor from the small bay to the S. The harbor has extensive facilities for pleasure craft, yachts, and fishing boats.
Vessels can anchor E or NE of the harbor entrance, but the bottom of fine sand is a poor holding ground and they are advised to anchor in Golfe Juan. Vessels can also anchor, in depths of 10 to 20m, E of the town.
The town is surrounded by fortifications and flanked by two large square towers. Fort Carre surmounts the point on the N side of the harbor and is prominent.
Port Vauban is the largest pleasure boat port in Europe! Visit Antibes at any time of year and you will soon realise that Antibes is about yachts, expensive yachts and very expensive yachts. The Old town is a must to visit with its narrow streets and varied restaurants.

Le Cap d'Ail marque la séparation entre les baies de Beaulieu et de Monaco. Les abords étant malsains, il faut s'en écarter assez largement. Le cap Martin est couvert de pins d'où émerge un sémaphore blanc sur les hauteurs.
