Golfe Juan features two harbours: the Old Port and the Camille Rayon Port.
The Old Port, where fishing mixes with sailing, offers a variety of excursions to the Lérins Islands, Saint-Tropez or Monaco. The Camille Rayon Port is only intended for pleasure boating: you will find cruising boats and luxury yachts tying up there.
The ports of Golfe Juan are easily accessible:
- the international airport of Nice Côte d’Azur is located a few kilometres away
- coming from the A8, take the exit 44 "Vallauris – Sophia Antipolis – Antibes"
- there is a TER (Train Express Regional) serving the Golfe-Juan-Vallauris train station
The bay of Golfe-Juan, nestled between the cape of Antibes and the Lérins Islands, is very sheltered from the winds. There are therefore no particular problems when approaching the port of Golfe Juan. On site, you will find many shops for your supplies and a few ship chandlers if needed for your boat and cruise.
The port can welcome up to 833 boats measuring from 6 meters to 75 meters long, on fixed or floating quays.
Draught: 2 to 5 meters.
Entrance beacon light: green light 2 glows, 6 seconds / red light isophase 4 seconds
Very well equipped: Wi-Fi, selective sorting, clean port, Blue Pavilion Label, fuel station, video surveillance coverage, toilet facilities and showers…
Sailing from Golfe Juan is fantastic: beautiful waters, wonderful stopovers, heavenly anchorages... Head for Porquerolles, discover the Îles d’Or and snorkel to explore the beautiful sea bed. Stop by Cannes, Hyères or don’t hesitate to cruise towards Corsica if you have time (allow two weeks in order not to rush on the way back in case of bad weather).
Historic highlight: Napoleon the 1st landed at Golfe-Juan upon his return from the island of Elba in March 1815. Golfe-Juan is therefore the starting point of the Route Napoleon. A commemorative stone, located at the entrance of the town, and a marble plaque on the beach remind us of this event.
The port is situated near the town-centre so you will be able to stroll around and visit some nice places.
Upon arrival at the port, you will be able to discover Saint Peter’s church, the Ceramic Museum (Golfe Juan is known as the capital of ceramic art and pottery), the Magnelli Museum and the national Picasso Museum for art-lovers.
If you feel like taking your mind off things, go to the Theatre of the Sea ‘Jean Marais’...
Fancy a rest? The fine sandy beaches of Golfe Juan are splendid and are waiting for you.
If you are fond of scuba diving, you should know that the bay of Golfe Juan is home to a reserve where all the fauna and flora of the Mediterranean has found its place. Please note: the average water temperature varies between 13°c and 25°c.
Golfe Juan is a very pretty and culturally rich city: it is an ideal stopping point to visit some sights or to enjoy a rest!!!
