Trade the bustle of Cannes for an island escape when you book an independent day trip by ferry to the Île Saint-Marguerite. Though it’s just .5 miles (.8 kilometers) off-shore, the island offers unspoiled nature and a perspective on the Riviera scenery that few tourists see. Board a ferry at your chosen departure time; upon arrival, visit the Fort Royal, hike amidst the eucalyptus trees, plan your own picnic, and more.
  • This self-led day trip is perfect for independent-minded travelers
  • See a new side of the Riviera when you visit the Île Saint-Marguerite
  • Round-trip ferry tickets included; pick your own preferred departure times
