Port Vauban is a French yachting harbor located in Antibes on the French Riviera. Originally a natural harbor in use since before the Roman Empire, the port was fortified by Sébastien Le Prestre, Seigneur de Vauban, later Marquis de Vauban, King Louis XIV's military engineer.
Port Vauban now serves as the home of the Yacht Club d'Antibes and is the largest marina (in terms of total tonnage of the boats and yachts moored there) in the Mediterranean Sea. Some of the world's largest and most lavishly appointed yachts have Port Vauban as their home port, including Russian oil businessman Roman Abramovich's 86 m Ecstasea and his gift to fellow Russian businessman Eugene Shvidler (Le Grand Bleu). Co-founder of Microsoft Paul Allen's yacht Octopus is a regular visitor to the harbor.

We went around sunset to walk around the marina area of Port Vaughan to see yachts. Some of them were exquisite and a wonderful pleasure to look at them. The whole area was charming and relaxing to move around. After that, we went into the city centre.

Attentive Marina Staff - Reasonable summer rate for a large yacht

Port Vauban is nice quiet place, abit of nasty sewage smell in some parts... bicycle security boys passing by the boats every hour flashlighting the boats, good security, good waste management, organised leadership in capitainerie

Love the big wheel - highly recommended! So near all the cafes and shops of the old town, and this makes the port a delightful spot.
