French Yacht Charter: Cap D’Antibes and the Other Caps

The 3 Caps 

Cap D’Antibes yacht charter : one of the most visited and popular caps is the Cap d’Antibes, located just around the corner from the beautiful Antibes. With tiny little coves and sheltered bays, you can be sure to have a relaxing afternoon on or off your yacht. Jump off your yacht for a lunch in the famous Eden Roc.

Cap Bénat : If you are one for a little bit more adventure why not visit Cap Bénat, about an hour due east by boat from Saint Tropez. It is a beautiful area to anchor up and enjoy the Mediterranean sun, not forgetting the crystal clear waters that surround the area. But don’t forget your snorkelling gear for this one.

Cap Lardier : The final “Cap” on my list is a beautiful blast down the coastline; Once there, anchor up, dive in and feel the refreshing Mediterranean water. If swimming isn’t your first craze, why not pull out a towel, a glass or Rosé and of course suncream and enjoy the summer.
