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.

We had the boat from the port of Cannes to St. Marguerite which is the biggest and nearest. The walk to the Musee du Mer was very nice but the Musee itself was not that great!! The view of Cannes from the island is very nice. The next day we visited St Honorat which had 7 small lovely chapels to see. Again some stunning views. I think if you can only visit one island go to St. Honorat.

went for the day whilst staying in Peymeinade and had a great day, weather was very very hot and we really felt it!
The ferry was a nice quick trip - we took a pack lunch and just bought drinks & ice creams. Good day

The islands off Cannes make for a decent day trip, if you want to get away from it all. Though they're a short 15 min boat ride away, they're a world apart from the hustle-bustle and glamour of Cannes. It remains quite wild, with unpaved roads and little by way of development. The Sainte Marguerite island has the famous prison where The Man In The Iron Mask was imprisoned. I suppose if you're a fan of the book/movie this is worth a visit. Entry to the Musee de la Mer (for EUR 6) is worth it if you want to see flotsam and jetsam from old shipwrecks; some go back to a couple of centuries BC. Carry plenty of drinking water with you.

Quick 10 mins. boat ride across to the most beautiful island. Water was superb! Swimming possible all the way around. About a 4 km. walk around the island and a couple of options about where to eat though one restaurant was frightfully expensive but well worth it if you enjoy people watching.

We travelled by ferryboat from Nice at 37 euros each for 1 hour boat trip along the coast line, a great way to get some perspective. Birds eye view of Roman Abramovich villa on the Cap d'Antibes along with his super yatch Eclipse. Do take insect repellent as I was eaten alive!
