Beaches in antibes

My family and I will be staying in Nice and we will have a car. We would like to do a day trip to Antibes to enjoy the beach. Which beach would have parking availability ? Kid friendly? LoAlso would like to be able to have chair and umbrella rental if possible.

Hope one of the beaches has a bit of everything.

There are three Antibes beaches, all sandy, by the old town. But they are public beaches with no lounge chairs or umbrellas (other than a small one by the Royal antibes beach hotel)

Next to Antibes is the town of Juan Les pins (considered part of Antibes). It is a beach community with several beach restaurants with lounge chairs and umbrellas. Plenty of pubs and a cute town. You should also visit old Antibes for true quaint charm however.

Then there is plage garoupe which is in cap d’antibes. A more rural, wooded residential areal with several beach restaurants.

The "public" part of Garoupe measures maybe 20 x 12 m. Hundreds of folks would like to go there. It's hopeless.
