Baie des Anges

The Bay of Angels

Save to my Account

The fabulous Baie des Anges stretches from Cap d’Antibes in the west to Cap Ferrat in the east.

The graceful curve of the Bay of Angels can be seen best from the air as you fly into Nice. However, if you have arrived some other way, then climb Château Hill and enjoy the marvellous view from the top!

Angel Fish Bay

Many believe that the name derives from the angel fish, a kind of harmless shark, that the local Niçois fishermen catch in the waters off Nice. Shaped like a ray, its fins look like wings. Legends abound and one suggests that when the boat carrying the body of Ste. Réparate arrived on the coast near Nice it was accompanied by angels.

Another legend suggests that when Adam and Eve were expelled from the Garden of Eden they were brought here by angels who believed that the countryside was almost as beautiful as the Garden of Eden. Who am I to disagree?
