It's a great island with lots of paths in the shade so walking is enjoyable. There are a lot of small bays to freshen up in the sea and are not crowded, so you can have some peace and quiet.

It was a really hot day when we travelled across to the island, so the cooling breeze on the crossing was amazing. We managed to find a lovely little cove to sunbathe and swim in.

Caught ferry over for the afternoon, lovely small Island to walk around. Take a snack with you as it’s quite expensive over there. See plenty of motor yachts moored bringing people in dingys over for lunch

This represents a fantastic day trip away from the hustle and bustle of Cannes. It is very beautiful and if you enjoy walking and wonderful scenery this is the perfect place. You can walk around the entire coast in about three hours.

It takes approximately 15-20 minutes by boat to travel from Cannes to this island, and costs around. €15 pp. It is worth the trip; the views of Cannes and the surrounding area are amazing. If you like to walk/ hike, there are plenty of paths...More

I'm not sure but I expect it is possible. It would be important to check with the ferry companies. I would also ask them which Island is the best to visit for a wheel chair. I think St Honorat is best for you as it is... More
