The largest marina in the Mediterranean is found in a beautiful area with historical, cultural and architectural interests. Right in the heart of the French Riviera, between Monaco and St. Tropez, next to the cosmopolitan Nice and Cannes, Marina Port Vauban is in an area that has played a strategic role from the Middle Ages till today. The old fishing port has evolved into the capital of Mediterranean yachting and it’s not a coincidence that the IYCA (International Yacht Club of Antibes) is the most famous quay that occasionally hosts most of the world’s superyachts such as those of Roman Abramovich and the Saudi princes.
This unique marina offers all the necessary services for your yacht. Laundry, waste collection, drinking water, electricity plug, fuel, free wi-fi, parking lot, bicycle rentals, ramp for jet ski or small tenders and gift shops. It provides 1642 berth places including 19 berths for superyachts.
Of course, the marina is next to the old town of Antibes, so the services that can be offered to you are multiplied by many companies willing to satisfy all your needs. Do you need a relaxing massage? Flowers for your boat or the ability to order them for a special occasion? Maybe a chef to cook for you? Do you need pharmaceutical help?. A plethora of restaurants and atmospheric cafés are scattered in the old town, ready to satisfy your most demanding needs.
Find what you are looking for and make the best choice. Everything is just a click away – just a marina hop away!
Behind its old walls, Antibes’s old town is a hidden secret waiting to be discovered. Just 15 minutes from the Airport of Nice, easily accessible by air, land, and sea. The small alleys of the old city make your mind travel to old times. You can find plenty of stores to cater for all tastes. From clothing and footwear to scenic cafes and fine restaurants. Various delicatessen shops will tempt you to get lost in a gastronomic labyrinth that you will not want to escape. Cheese and meats from small local producers in Provence are really special here. Try to get in direct contact with them. On top of the French cuisine, French wines are famous worldwide. Many wine cellars will provide an extended choice of fine wines. We would suggest selecting from local producers that transform the taste and the spirit of France into great traditional wines. If you desire a special experience, you can find here a list of local wine producers. Otherwise, the solution of a wine cellar with a variety of labels is always available.
Another special experience is a tour to the local open market, where regional producers offer their fresh produce daily (during the summer months).
As for your cultural quests, you should visit the Picasso Museum in the seaside Chateau Grimaldi in the old town of Antibes and the Fort Carré, a 16th-century star-shaped fortress. Also famous is the Antibes jazz festival that has previously hosted the biggest names of the jazz scene.
French fashion cannot be absent in such an atmospheric and elegant environment. Many boutiques offer the opportunity to try out the latest fashion and stand out with your choices.
