Environmental Preservation

For over 10 years Port Vauban has proudly honoured European Blue Flag status and taken an environmental approach with the Clean Ports (Ports Propres) campaign. Currently the marina offers its berth holders a clean, healthy and preserved environment and this remains one of the Port Vauban’s top priorities.

By displaying the European Blue Flag and Clean Ports, Port Vauban is committed to protecting the sea and its marine life, and ensuring they remain intact for future generations. Port Vauban has also committed to Pélagos, an association of marine mammal protection in the Mediterranean. A free pumping station for black and grey water is available in the self service area which is located at the reception quay. You can request assistance at the harbour master’s office.

An innovative environmental approach with the process Biohut ®


Located in the Anse Saint Roch the port has a sheltered area with shallow water that was once particularly conducive to the development of fauna and flora, and played an important role in the reproductive cycles of many species of fish.Objectives have been set to qualitatively and quantitatively improve the ecological functionality of the port as a nursery for young fish in the area. In 2015, in partnership with the City of Antibes and with the financial support of the County Provence Alpes Cote d’Azur, and Water Agency Rhone Mediterranean Corsica, Port Vauban has used the expertise of Ecocean to install 92 BIOHUT.

Eco Transport

The port has invested in eco-friendly bicycles, electric bicycles, electric scooters and golf cars to enable environmentally friendly travel around the port.
