Beautiful islands, whether you choose St Honorat or St Mauguerite. Monastery on Honorat is truly beautiful and serene. St Marguerite also stunning. Fort is very interesting an La 'Guerite Restaurant is unmisseable.

Fantastic boat trip and 8km walk around Ste Marguerite. Very warm and restaurants expensive for drinks- bring your own water/towels and enjoy a pleasant day at the beach with a fab breeze in magical surroundings. Recommended.

The islands are very easy to get to by boat from Cannes harbour in front of the old town. Fifteen euros return and a decent frequent service. Very peaceful, nice walking and lots of history. No sandy beach so not vgreat for young kids.

We visited the island of Sainte Marguerite for a few hours on our recent trip to Cannes. It cost €15 for adults and €9.50 for children (cheaper if you book online) and is a pleasant 15 minute trip each way. Even my husband who doesn't...More
