A Hidden Treasure Along The French Riviera
Golfe-Juan is a quiet local spot tucked in between Antibes and Cannes. Relatively small, a yacht charter to Golfe-Juan is recommended for a day trip as you tender along the French Riviera.
Not a common stop on the Riviera trail, Golfe-Juan is a hidden treasure. Renowned for its long stretch of white sand public and private beaches, this is the perfect place to anchor, take out the water toys and try to spot some VIPs at Billionaires Bay, located just next door in Cap d’Antibes.
Must-do Activities While Yacht Chartering In Golfe-Juan
Golfe-Juan’s primary appeal is its beach. 3.5km long and sheltered from the winds, it is a magical spot to enjoy a host of water sports activities or a still summer day soaking up the sun on the beach. This small town also boasts a nature reserve with a diverse range of flora and fauna native to the Mediterranean
Walk In Napoleans Footsteps
The collection of paintings, drawings, statues, and ceramics is exclusively owned by the Museum, unable to be seen anywhere else.
One of Golfe-Juan’s most notable moments in history was in 1815, when Napolean landed on its shores after escaping exile from the Isle of Elba. He took with him 600 men. All of whom reached Golfe-Juan with him before he ventured onward to Paris.
Each year this day is celebrated in March. Although we do not recommend visiting at this time of year, you can go to the location of his arrival for yourself and imagine his experience. There is a special memorial place at the port that is very easily located.
Explore The Beach
Soft, white sand is special in the French Riviera, so we recommend stepping off your private yacht charter of Golfe-Juan to sink your toes in the sand before exploring this vast coastal stretch.
West of Vieux Port Golfe-Juan are the beaches Plages du Soleil and Plage du Midi. Two of the best where water sports equipment can be hired, and a steady bustle of beautiful people persist.
Head Inland To The Village Of Vallaurisining
If you are seeking more than a magical day on the water, you need only go inland a short distance to reach the village of Vallauris.
Here you will find quaint narrow streets in the Old Town and spectacular art galleries featuring works from the likes of Picasso, Marc Chagall, Victor Brauner and Matisse.
