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

just a quick boat ride to the island you get a good view of the coast from the top of the fort. the fort is not much to talk about really. this is where the man in the iron mask is said to be imprisoned before being sent to Paris but that is really all there is to it. there... More

Unless your up for a hike, this island is not worth it for a swim, rocks everywhere no sandy beaches, food is refreshingly affordable though but overall would put in one or two hours to explore this island and check out the man in the iron mask prison.

This Place is ideal for lazy afternoon and picnic! The island is not the most beautifull island in the world, or even the beaches are not the best, but if you are staying in France Riviera and need some tranquility and change to scenery it is definately worth going. It is ideal for a few hours/day trip from Cannes. It... More

The owner of our hotel recommended a day trip to this island, just a 20-minute boat ride from Juan Les Pins. We never would have known about it, and it was the highlight of our trip in the Antibes area. We loved walking all over the island and finding secluded coves for sunning and swimming. We brought a picnic lunch... More

We took the ferry from Cannes to St. Marguerite for the day and what a delight it was. A must see is touring the old medieval fort and learn all about the history of the monks, Cannes and the Romans that preceded them. It is said that the Man in the Iron Mask was kept here as well. There one... More

Visited the island in July 2016. It is a lovely spot, shaded walks and peaceful. Water was also beautiful but unfortunately unlike Cannes all the beaches were either pebbles or rocks. So although it is a lovely spot the beach is a little disappointing. The fort was also a little underwhelming pretty run down apart from the little museum. The... More
