Loved strolling around this mini-island, getting to see the fortress with the man with the iron mask prison and getting lost in the beautiful sea view forest. The weather was wintery so I can imagine this place is magic with the perfect weather! But still even in winter if weather permits it's a great way to pass some time, maybe... More

A pleasant day out by boat to see a pretty island. Good for woodland walk of about 1 1/2 hours around rocky shoreline with nice spots to picnic and bathe. Worthwhile!

You can go with your own boat or with the ferry. It's a lovely island cross from Cannes where you can enjoy a lovely Picnic with friend or a couple, have a great swim and enjoy Life.

We took the short ferry ride across the harbor to spend the day at Ile Ste Marguerite. Competition for beach space was fierce, but we eventually found a spot. The views are spectacular, the water is like bathwater and the setting is delightful.

A wonderful way to spend a couple of relaxing hours or a full day form the 'hectic pace' of touring the area of Cannes. Only a 10 - 15 minute boat ride from the Cannes Harbour this island offers a variety of quiet options. You can take a leisurely stroll through the various pathways, or take a fast paced hike....

Did this trip not much other than the museum and jail. I feel that a lot more could be done with the island to encourage more visitors, such as a good restaurant and other facilities on the small beach.

Ile Saints-Marguerite is beautiful, it takes about 10-15 mins from the mainland to get their and tickets cost €14 return. The boats across are usually every hour, you can easily spend a couple of hours on the island walking through the forest and through the museum at the top and fort. The sea surrounding the island is clear and was... More

A trip to Ile Sainte-Marguerite is a perfect way to spend a day in Cannes if you are staying there for any length of time, especially if you are looking for a bit of an escape from the hustle and bustle of Cannes' streets (which can get quite crowded during peak times in the summer). Although it may sound like... More

We visited this island the day we arrived in Cannes. Since we were tired after the flight and the early morning this was a perfect getaway from the busy streets of Cannes. It's advisable to take some food and drink with you since the amount of restaurants on the island is limited. We had some snacks and wine and enjoyed... More

We spent a cloudy half day taking the ferry across to Ile Sainte-Marguerite - and we would recommend. Around €15 return, the island offers nice views of the Cannes coastline and surrounding area. A picturesque fort and a few small restaurants accompany the port, and the island is yours to explore and set up camp to picnic or relax by... More
