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.
