A great way to spend half a day or a day in nature, accessible by boat (15mn ride), perfect and accessible with young kids

This is a sweet little trip but not a top-ten to-do. The history is wonderful and has compelling story lines, with the monastery and of course, man in the iron (it was actually black velvet) mask. But it only has moderately well cared for buildings,...More

The boat trip over to the island was fun with a close up of some awesome super-yachts in the harbour! Although it's only a short trip, the island feels a world away from the hubbub of Cannes and is so relaxing with stunning views of...More

Quiet and pretty Island. The beach is rocky but the sea is lovely. The old monastery is well worth a visit.

A very enjoyable day out from Cannes. Take the ferry across to Saint Marguerite at €15 return. Beaches are stoney so bring swim shoes. A couple of restaurants or stalls for picnic. Beaches on far side of island more picturesque but more stoney. Do visit...More

Don't miss the Museum and the fantastic snorkelling beaches, particularly on the north side. The place has such a relaxed and much less hectic vibe than the cote d'Azur. The trip across from Juan les Pins (20 mins) is quick and fun, with a double...More

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.

A wonderful day out, and worth the overpriced half hour ferry crossing (parking is also expensive), especially if the Sun is shining! A couple of words of caution however - there are no sandy beaches, only rocky pebbly ones, and you will be sharing the...More
