Antibes' Iconic Port

Updated: Jul 4, 2020

Dubbed ‘the biggest pleasure harbour in Europe,’ Port Vauban boasts 1642 berth places, also making it one of the largest marinas in the Mediterranean Sea.

However, the harbour also has a rich cultural heritage and history, preceding the Roman Empire- and owes its name to the Marquis de Vauban who ordered the fortification of the port in the 17th century. Later, in the 20th century, Port Vauban also housed seaplanes, thereby commercially connecting Antibes to North African cities such as Tunis and Algiers.

Today, the port is kept vibrant and alive by the International Yacht Club d’Antibes (IYCA) and its ‘Billionaires’ Quay’, where you can admire some of the world’s largest yachts, many of which belong to well-known tycoons. In addition, activities such as yoga and sports classes continually attract visitors in the summertime.
