Very chilled out day walking around the island.... Should have taken a picnic with us to eat on the beach.

Very calm and beautyiful place just 15 min boat trip away from trendy Cannes. Worth to spend day there. Places for lunch are there and boats drive every hour until 18.00 PM

Pricey bout trip, 13 euros each return. Plus 6 euros each for access to the museum. The eucalyptus forests are amazing, I will never forget the smell. Lots of beaches to choose from. It was raining the day I was there but if not, you could spend the whole day there. Pack a picnic!

13 euros for a return ferry trip to the island, stay how long you want and get the ferry back at fifteen minutes past the hour. The fort is an extra 10 euros to go in so I didn't go in! Walk across to the other side of the island, great view of the island behind it, very clear waters.... More

It is quite nice island for a short trip. You will not find many atractions there but it is worth to visit if you are looking for a quiet place and beautiful views and to "touch" some history in the museum or just to make some photos of Cannes and many boats around. It would not be my top place,... More

A lovely place to spend a day away from the bustle of Nice /Cannes. We took a boat ride from Nice, about an hour, and spent the rest of the day exploring. The island is criss crossed with paths and tree lined routes to wlk along and a good mixture of shade and sun. Head across to the back of... More

This island is absolutely beautiful and a lot bigger than Saint Honorat so we spent a lot more time here. The fort was very interesting, explaining the history of the 'man in the iron mask'. The rest of the island possesses numerous paths and trails, in which me and my boyfriend took a picnic and spent the rest of the... More

An easy ferry from Cannes and unspoiled and a little off the tourist trail. Very much worth a day and you will not be disapointed.

Spent a really super day, 13 Euros return for the ferry to the island from Cannes. Beautiful views from the ferry. Then a gorgeous (although athletic) walk to the fort. Cost to enter the museum and aquarium was another 6 Euros... Museum was well worth it. Deeply emotional experience from standing in the 'iron mask' cell to reading about the... More

I go here quite often with my husband and our dog and when our family come over to visit we love to bring them here too. I really love this place, the views are amazing and there are loads of picnic benches to eat at or there are 2 restaurants on the island (1 is very expensive the other is... More
