Juan-les-Pins, a small hamlet of the municipality of Antibes, is a renowned seaside resort in the Baie des Anges: founded in 1882, it experienced its most glorious boom in the 1920s.

Today, it is one of the favourite destinations on the Côte d’Azur for lovers of idleness, golden beaches, water sports and nightlife. Every year since the 1960s, the Juan les Pins Jazz Festival takes place in July, which has welcomed jazz greats such as Charles Mingus and Bud Powell.

The busy promenade is lined with fine outdoor restaurants and dotted with trendy boutiques, surrounded by modern residences, which come alive almost exclusively during the summer season.

Best beaches in Juan-les-Pins

A well-known seaside resort, Juan-les-Pins boasts a long sandy shoreline with a string of beaches. Unfortunately, most of them are for private access by establishment or for use by hotel guests. You will therefore have to anticipate a daily charge for renting a beach umbrella and sunbeds.

Another big problem is parking: the beaches have no dedicated parking spaces and you have to be very lucky to find places along the adjacent streets.

Plage de l'Ouest

1160 Imp. Napoléon, 06160 Antibes, Francia

At the beginning of Juan-les-Pins, there is a little-known sandy beach with difficult parking, but quieter than most of the surrounding beaches.

You will find almost no equipment here, except for the showers at the ends: locals come here to recharge their batteries and find some peace and quiet. The road is close by and can be dangerous with children.

For parking, the easiest way is to leave your car in the underground pay car park at the end of rue Dulys.

Plage du Pont du Lys

2Bd Charles Guillaumont, 06160 Antibes, Francia

The sandy beach of Pont de Lys is located near Place du Lys, on Boulevard Raymond Poincaré, and along Boulevard du Littoral, the extension of Boulevard Baudoin towards Cannes.

Since summer 2018, this beach has been totally public. The old private establishments have been discontinued, giving way to a vast beach of fine sand.

Access is easy by leaving your car in one of the car parks on Rue Dulys and Rue du Jardin Secret. A subway provides safe access to the beach. Please note that parking is prohibited along the Boulevard du Littoral.

Grande Plage de Juan-les-Pins

3Bd Charles Guillaumont, 06160 Antibes, Francia

The westernmost beach of the resort is also the best known and most crowded. It runs along the Boulevard Guillaumont and stretches to the end of the suburb.

Awaiting you are 250 metres of fine sand with a beautiful view of Juan les Pins and the Gulf of Juan. It is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful beaches in the resort, despite the fact that it is immediately next to the road.

Please note that it is guarded during the summer season. On the other hand, there is a lack of equipped parking in the vicinity.

Plage de Ponton Courbet

406160 Antibes, Francia

Ponton Courbet beach is located along Boulevard Charles Guillaumont, a stone’s throw from the junction with Avenue de l’Amiral Courbet .

This very narrow sandy area has only private beaches with restaurants and sunbed rentals, as well as a jetty where water sports can be enjoyed.

Plage de la Promenade du Soleil

5Bd Charles Guillaumont, 06160 Antibes, Francia

The Promenade du Soleil beach is located near the centre of Juan. This area is mostly occupied by private beaches. There is only one public space next to the private beach Douce Plage, along a jetty, but it is small.

If you are looking for a public beach, we recommend heading for the beaches west of Juan or the Gallice beach.

Plage du Casinò

61 ter Bd Edouard Baudoin, 06160 Antibes, Francia

Casino Beach is one of the many beaches along the Promenade du Soleil, near the casino in Juan les Pins.

This charming sandy beach is only public out of season and is accessed by stairs from the pedestrian promenade.

Plage de la Pinède

723 Bd Edouard Baudoin, 06160 Antibes, Francia

At the end of Square Franck Jay Gould, near the Casino de Juan, in the city centre, this beach is privately accessible during the summer season: it offers its customers three restaurants and sunbed rental.

In low season, however, it reverts to public access and is undoubtedly one of the most pleasant in Juan-les-Pins, due to its central location and at the same time away from the street.

As with almost all beaches in Juan-les-Pins, the big problem is parking, which proves difficult and often very expensive, with the paid spaces at the casino or the Ambassadeur hotel on avenue des Sables.

Plage de la Galice

It is located right next to the port and is totally public. To reach it from Juan les Pins you have to take the boulevard Edouard Baudoin and follow the road to Port de la Gallice, where there is also a convenient parking area.

Sheltered from the road, along the walls, it is a small, intimate beach, just 100 metres long, well protected from the winds by the presence of the port. Much loved and known only to locals, it is unfortunately unsupervised and proves very crowded in summer.

Plage du Crouton

906160 Antibes, Francia

It is undoubtedly one of the lesser-known beaches of Juan-les-Pins, nestled between the ports of Gallice and Crouton and hidden by the port’s two breakwaters.

Despite the presence of a small private beach, this small lido is public, sheltered and from here there is a beautiful view of Golfe Juan and especially of Cap d’Antibes.

Please note that the beach is not signposted and the only way to reach it, after the Port of Galice, is to turn into a narrow sky lane, the Chemin du Crouton, at the Cap d’Antibes Beach hotel, at the end of which you will find a small free car park (chargeable in summer).
