We set off early as this is a popular destination. The boat trip is great as no matter where you sit the view is great. Reaching the island the first little kiosk sells baguettes filled and drinks reasonably priced. We crisscrossed the island found a empty beach and swam as the waters lovely. However it's all rocks so rubber sandals... More

An amazing few hours spent walking around the island. We bought our ticket at the port near the old town. A ferry was there and we left within minutes. As we walked around the island we passed many couples and families having so much fun. The island resounded with laughter and cicadas. The ferry was there, ready and waiting for... More

We went on the island to spend a day there. We loved the forest and unpaved small streets, but we ended up going on a rocky area for swimming (which is not nice if you don't have special shoes). So i don't recommend going to the "beach" here. But we also visited the museum which was very interesting.

the island is at 10-15 minutes from Cannes on boat. Once you have found a parking place in Cannes (😞😞😞), it is simple. You have to take rounds in the parking if you do not have the chance. You buy your ticket, and you are on Ile St. Marguerite in 10 minutes. We have not visited the Fortress, we were... More

The island is wooded, uncrowded and very peaceful. But the promise of a sandy beach was exaggerrated (or just false). Rocky only. Perfectly nice but if you want classic beach, stay in Cannes

Really enjoyed the boat trip to the island. Had a nice walk round, although be warned it can get very hot! Then had lunch in a little take away cafe that had seating alongside. The fort is well worth a visit even just to see the prison cells where the Man in the Iron Mask was imprisoned.

Buy a cheap snorkel and swim in rocky coastline with lots of fish and coral to see! Very exciting though it is rocky and therefore not good for sunbathing as its uncomfortable. I definitely recommend buying wet shoes so the rocks don't hurt your feet. The beach closet to were the boats come in is very crowded on a summers... More
