Juan Les Pins (Antibes), France Cruise Port

If you're looking for a hot time on the Mediterranean, then sailing to the cruise port of Juan-les-Pins, France should fulfill all of your fondest desires. Located in the southwest between Cannes and Nice within France's Antibes resort region, this small town is extremely popular among tourists – especially artists, writers, and international jet-setters. A mixture of 16th-century architecture and modern amenities (such as spas, casinos, and nightclubs), Juan-les-Pins also has lovely, sandy beaches perfect for swimming or sunbathing. There’s history behind this town, as it’s where Napoleon landed in 1815; once just a small picnic area for locals, by the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Juan-les-Pins was a place where the famous came to stay. With the opening of Le Provençal Hotel, guests such as Charlie Chaplin drew the attention of other tourists. Listed below are a handful of our favorite experiences when cruising to Juan-les-Pins, Antibes, France:
 
  • Of course, there are plenty of beaches in Juan-les-Pins. Some private beaches won't appreciate just anyone plunking down their towel or beach chair. Some of the public options are Plage de la Gallice, which is a bit smaller but isolated from traffic noise, and Plage du Pont Dulys, which is big for water sports. The main beach is Grande Plage, which provides changing areas as well as a view of the mountains.
     
  • There are plenty of opportunities for diving and snorkeling, whether you have your own equipment or need to rent some. Keep an eye out for octopus, eels, coral, and plenty of fish.
     
  • For a break from the hot sun, Parc de la Pinede is a lovely little place for people watching and taking the kids. There are vast green spaces where you can meet a friendly squirrel or two, a large playground, and areas for cycling and skating.
     
  • American Frank Jay Gould eventually moved to France and opened several French Riviera casinos and hotels; no wonder he has a square dedicated to him in Juan-les-Pins. Here you'll find plenty to do whether it's day or night, from gambling to fine food and drink.
