Antibes is a small resort town of southeastern France, on the Mediterranean Sea in the Cote d'Azur, located between Cannes and Nice. It is 12.5 miles by rail southwest of Nice, and is situated on the east side of the Garoupe peninsula. The population at the 1999 census was 72412. The area of Antibes is 26.48 sq km.
Antibes has one of the largest yacht marinas on the Cote d'Azur, built in the 1960s on the site of a Roman harbour. There is still a local fishing industry, much diminished from its size a century ago. It was formerly a site of perfume distilling; the surrounding country once produced an abundance of flowers. Perfume distillation is still carried out on a commercial scale in nearby Grasse.
