A respectfull visit to the tiny Crimea War cemetary on Sainte-Marguerite is a must. Try to visit the islands off season. They are unique

Just a 20 minute ferry trip from Cannes port to Ile d'Honorate. Lovely monasteries including a fortified monastery are well worth visiting. Clear waters provide great snorkelling & swimming all around the island.

Nice to get out to the island for the day, take a picnic though as there are few amenities near the dock and none further in where it is nicer to sit and enjoy the nature.

Had a very relaxing walk. Exploring the fortified monastery of Abbey Lérins was the best part. The Church and monastery was unexpectly charming with the palm trees and flowers. Would have stayed the whole day <3
