It is a decent island to spend few hours. You can cover the whole island within 4 hours. They have loads of trails including jungle trails which is good fun with kids. But the I wouldn't recommend it for swimming. It is rocky and weedy in most areas. The food on the island is a bit expensive so it will... More

Spent half a day there and that was more than enough. We explored the old prison, had a picnic lunch and then sat by the water. The beaches are not either dirt or rocks and there are not many facilities or restaurants on the island. The boat ride over to the island is a good way to see the coast.

It's nice for a Sunday walk or a family picnic under the eucalyptus trees but other than that, a bit disappointing.

We just came back to Nice from the island, which is generally a nice place, but other than the old fort and the pretty, relaxing pine trees, there is nothing to see. The fort is left to perish, what is really sad, it could be beautiful, the beaches are weedy, rocky and full of jellyfish (my poor gf still suffer... More

What a view back to Cannes and the coastline as you take the boat out to the islands. Have visited in different seasons and would recommend September when the temperature is cooler, but the sea is still lovely and warm. Enjoy the wandering and the wildlife, for those that enjoy Geo caching there are plenty to find and enjoy the... More

Very nice place to spend relaxing day on beautiful beach. It's only 15 minutes by boat to get there. The island is really wonderful. You can find your own place to swim with small beach or you can just take really nice walk around.

Spent a whole day on the island. Up until 12 we had a little beach by ourselves towards the back of the island. The constant sound of cicadas fill the air, the place is so peaceful. So many trails are quiet and worth exploring. The views are great too. Will definitely go back again.

Lovely 15 minute boat trip from Cannes to the island. Very quiet and pretty. Boats return every 30 minutes. More to see than the Iron Man cell so wish we had more time there. Will definitely return soon

It was a short walk up to the Fort and If I had taken more time I might have enjoyed some time on the beach…it looked lovely as well.
