Owner description: Two islands just a boat ride from Cannes, Ste-Marguerite and St-Honorat, are covered by eucalyptus and pine forests and are home to Fort Royal.

This is a great daytrip: rocky cove swimming (in season); easy relaxing forest hiking trails; quiet if you do your homework and come very early or late; very good boutique with excellent chocolate from partner Abbaye N. D. de Bonnevale plus great honey. *But I've saved the best for last---the wine produced here is worth the trip across an ocean! Their St. Honorat syrah reminds one of the very best Aussie Shiraz. Not cheap, but perhaps the best wine we tasted during a month across France, inc. Alsace. Note: there are mosquitoes here late into the Fall!

A cool adventure that has a reasonably priced ferry ride from Cannes. The fort, restaurants and beaches all feel miles away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the Cote d'Azur!

We did a day trip here, having rented a small, not expensive, private boat from Antibes (used a company called 212 Yachts, who were good). We went on one island and the walks were lovely, it is nicely shaded from the hot sun in August with the lush trees. From the boat we went all around the 2 islands and the scenery was great, but also the water seemed different here from the rest of the mainland coast, much more tropical. Really fantastic snorkelling. If you enjoy walking and/or swimming these islands are well worth a visit.

Another must see when you are in Cannes, totally different but well worth visiting. A short boat trip over to the islands and some wonderful views.

Easy and cheap (14 Euros pp return) to St. Honorat and it was great. The ferry was very good and perfectly on time. The restaurant, La Tonelle, was very good and we loved exploring all of the historic buildings. Well worth the trip.
