After so many visits to the South of France this was our first time going to the island. It is worth the trip on a beautiful weather day,we bought tickets for the larger island and Fort but accidentally got on the smaller island and the ticket taker did not point this out. However for a relaxing shorter easy walk,it is... More

St Marguerite and St Honorat are the two islands which constitute these Iles. The former one is the one I visited which is bigger of the two. It has got a forest trail having walking paths covering it entirely with a few restaurants and a castle to visit. It is an ideal spot for a picnic and a bath in... More

We took the ferry to the Islands across from Cannes last week. Isle de Saint Margarita. We walked around the island which was beautiful , and took a picnic and ate it on the small beach. The view of Cannes is wonderful, and the island is very peaceful and relaxing on a sunny day. Weekends get busy. It is easy... More

One of thebest things to do while you are in Cannes. Very pleasant day out. Beautiful to walk around both islands and explore all they have to offer.

A days trip by boat ( 30 mins transfer) from Cannes brings you to Ile Ste Marguerite the largest of the Lerins islands. There is a pleasant woodland walk of ca 1 1/2 hours around the island with its pretty rocky shoreline with plenty of spots to picnic and bathe. Worthwhile.

Small island, not overly comfortable for swimming, but if you don't mind rocks, it had great sea. The island itself is beautiful and well kept. The restaurant/ bar is crazy expensive - bring food!

We walked along the beach after being brought to the bay by our cruise ship. Tenders took and returned us to our ship and although there was another very large cruise ship in the bay there was not a feeling of being over run with tourists. There are plenty of cafe's a park on the opposite side of the road... More
