Yes, we’re in a hotel room in Antibes, especially at the Jabotte. But it’s spring and it’s time to put your nose outside to enjoy the first rays of sunshine that warm up the French Riviera. Looking to organize your spring weekend?
Here are 5 ideas for outdoor activities to escape and discover the surroundings of Antibes.

Hiking: The Cap d’Antibes tour

The coastal path is one of the favorite walks for locals and vacationers alike. This hike offers spectacular views of the Mediterranean Sea and takes you to discover historical sites such as the Villa Eilenroc. The trail is about 4.5 km long and takes about 1.5 hours to complete. It’s a great way to stretch your legs while getting some sea air.

Jabotte Tip: Bring your bathing suit, there are a few small coves along the way where you can take a little break for a swim!

Bike rides in the city and bike paths

Antibes has many bicycle paths and quiet roads ideal for bike rides. There are urban circuits to the Port Vauban and the old town, tracks along the beaches and also the Mediterranean by Bike route which connects Antibes to Villeneuve-Loubet over 6 km.
At La Jabotte, it is easy to enjoy this outdoor activity thanks to our rental bikes.
Jabotte Bonus: You can also discover the surroundings of Antibes by bike, following the bike path that runs along the beach from Juan-les-Pins to Cannes. An excellent opportunity to discover this so charming part of the coastline by bike!

Picnic with a view
To discover the local culinary specialties, there’s nothing like a picnic to enjoy it!
Go and enjoy your pan Bagnat in one of the spots dedicated to this purpose in Antibes.
Our favorites?
The gardens of the Villa Thuret for a bucolic picnic among the trees and exotic plants.
The park of the Pinède for a shady picnic where picnic tables are installed.
La Garoupe for a breathtaking view of the Mediterranean.

Jabotte Tip: For a more intimate experience, why not picnic on a secluded beach? The beach of La Garoupe is ideal for this and a little further on, on the path of tire-poil, there again, you can have a pan bagnat/rosé combo to share with friends or family.
