If you’re visiting the Côte D’azur, a walk along one of these capes will get you into touch with the true beauty of the Alpes Maritimes.
Cap MartinThis is a 3 kilometre walk of roughly 45 minutes where you will be able to observe the typical fauna and follow the footsteps of Nietzche and the well known cabin architecturaal concept of Corbusier that you will come across along the walk.
This cape offers 11 kilometres of coastal paths around the millionaires' peninusula with sumptuous villas in a peaceful luxuriant setting. The Promenade de la Saint Hospice is about a 45 minute walk and is lined with Aleppo Pine trees. Another path is an hours walk between the Anse Lilong and the Plage de Passable.
This a 3,6 km coastal walk linking the plage de la Mala and the Plage Marquet. It takes about an hour and you will discover the architecture of the belle Epoque villas as well as the rich flora.
This is an exceptional coastal walk of 5 kilometres (2 hours) where you get the feeling that you are in a reserve of wild beauty. The path is sometimes battered by waves and there are small creeks if you want a quick swim.
The path is called the "Chemin des Douaniers" but better known as the "sentier de Tire-poil". The path is easily accessed from the Plages de la Garoupe car park and runs along the walls of the great gardens of the Chateau de la Garoupe as well as the Chateau de la Croé. Following the winding and sometimes narrow path (make sure you have appropriate walking shoes), you will reach the tip of the Cap d'Antibes and the Villa EilenRoc which can be visited on certain days.
From here you can either return to the car park via the avenue de la tour Gandolphe or you can continue the walk to the preserved beach of the « Anse de l'argent faux » otherwise known as Billionaires' Bay.
