“Quiet Time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Short boat trip to a lovely island away from the bustle of the town. Good views, relax by the sea or walk in the woods.

“Visit Fort Royal and the museum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

The island has a few trails to hike on, and quite a few beaches (pebbly, like most of the areas outside of Cannes). The museum inside Fort Royal was very enjoyable and educational.

“Ideal for a pic nic lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

I go there every year when I visit Cannes and I never get tired of it. The color of the water is wonderful and the peace and tranquility make it a must place to visit to scape from Cannes loudness.

“Short hop from Cannes port”

Short trip by boat from the port at Cannes. Takes about 15 minutes. Good views of Cannes and the port from St Marguerite. Full of trees with good walks on the island.

“St Honorat - to die for........”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Imagine a retreat. Somewhere safe. Somewhere easy to get to. Somewhere unique. An island. Where there is just a very old Monastery, a few monks and nothing else. This is St Honorat and I have every intention of going there on a 7 day spiritual retreat in September. It is an amzing little place. Beautiful trees, silence and the wonderful sense of the little place having breathed a sigh of relief when she realised that she wasn't going to have to perform along the same lines as Cannes....A real bijou dans un monde de fous......
