A good way to escape the crowd

Despite the numbers travelling across on the boat, once there it was easy to get away from the crowds and enjoy the peace, quiet and scenery.

On Île Sain-Honorat, there is a restaurant where you can have lunch though I was not there myself at lunch time. The shop next to the monastery sells their home made wines difficult to get anywhere else. You can enjoy a pleasant walk through woods with no sound but birds singing. Île Sainte-Marguerite also has a lot of nature to... More

Peaceful wonderful island for a nice swim on sandy + rocky beaches, the water is so clean and limpid. I advise to bring some food for a pic nic. The island is 15min far away from cannes, so u can enjoy wonderful view of cannes during the boat trip.

Lovely islands. Fabulous old buildings. Boats available to each Island from the port in Cannes and run every hour in season. Cost was 14 euros per adult and took about twenty minutes each way. There is a good, level footpath all around the island of Honorat . Small restaurant and café . Excellent way to spend an afternoon.

After so many visits to the South of France this was our first time going to the island. It is worth the trip on a beautiful weather day,we bought tickets for the larger island and Fort but accidentally got on the smaller island and the ticket taker did not point this out. However for a relaxing shorter easy walk,it is... More

St Marguerite and St Honorat are the two islands which constitute these Iles. The former one is the one I visited which is bigger of the two. It has got a forest trail having walking paths covering it entirely with a few restaurants and a castle to visit. It is an ideal spot for a picnic and a bath in... More

We took the ferry to the Islands across from Cannes last week. Isle de Saint Margarita. We walked around the island which was beautiful , and took a picnic and ate it on the small beach. The view of Cannes is wonderful, and the island is very peaceful and relaxing on a sunny day. Weekends get busy. It is easy... More
