Antibes is regarded by many as one of the premier yachting destinations of the Mediterranean. Port Vauban boasts a helicopter pad within the port used to transport passengers, crew, and owners to one of the many megayachts that are routinely berthed here.

Nice lies almost equidistant of the two shows, and seems the most logical destination for yachtsmen cruising north from Cannes to Monaco. Hail the Boating Office on VHF channel 9, or the Harbor Master’s office on VHF channel 12.

Once a city of the Greeks, then a residence of the Romans, then a monastic community, and later a vacation destination for the upper echelon of American society, Port de Beaulieu, located just north of Nice and about 20 minutes from Monaco by car, is a good location to serve as your home port while you shuttle back forth to the shows.
