Garoupe lighthouse in Cap d’Antibes
Updated: Jul 4, 2020
If you want to enjoy one of the most spectacular views of the Riviera, walk up the “chemin du Calvaire” which starts at the Salis beach. You will reach the Garoupe lighthouse towering at an altitude of 103m, and from Cannes to Italy, the view will take your breath away. The lighthouse was originally built in the 1830s; it was destroyed during World War II and rebuilt in 1948. It has a range of 60 km for boats and 100 km for planes, making it one of the strongest lights of the Mediterranean coast.
And in case you don’t want to walk, don’t worry, you can reach the lighthouse
by car or by bus.
