My husband and I loved this island. It is quaint island off of Cannes and if you are a nature lover and would like something more relaxed than the typical shopping in Cannes then this is an activity for you. We took a 20-25 min ferry ride over to the island which was very pleasant and immediately had a very... More

Of our time in Cannes (July 2015), I can honestly say the day we spent on Saint Honorat island was the most impactful and memorable. I'll never forget it. We left our two teen girls (19 & 17) on their own in Cannes and at the beach and went to this island for the day. Not only was it an... More

Only 20 mins or so by ferry from Cannes - but a world away! Go for the peace and quiet, shady walks if you want to escape the sun. Not the place fr you if you need a bar, cafe or other attractions to keep you entertained. But if you love a great view, nature and a little solitude, read... More

This is an oasis of calm and tranquility so close to the hustle of Cannes and the Riviera. A very short ferry ride fro Cannes takes you out to the island owned and run by monks. Lovely walk round the island - mostly shady among the pine trees with great views of Cannes and the Riviera. Takes about 2 hour... More

Just a short ferry ride away from the hustle and bustle of Cannes is this lovely, peaceful Island owned and inhabited by 22 Benedictine monks. You can stroll by the vineyards, climb the tower once used to defend the island, and visit the shop where the wines and liqueurs produced by the monks are sold. It's an absolutely beautiful way...

It was a train ride a ferry from Nice, but what a picturesque place. Loved the church and the fortified monastery. Such solitude and beauty. Be warned they shut down from 12 noon to 2, so keep that in mind when planning your time that you will not be allowed in the buildings during that period. Great snorkelling off the... More

We walked round the island and it was absolutely stunning. Although very hot the island's trees offer a lot of shade. I'd recommend visiting the monastry's fort which has a stunning view of cannes and the island (and it's free!). We were going to buy a sandwich at the deli but we're very disappointed. The food looked horrible and inedible.... More

What a beautiful place. It is so small that it is easy to walk around the whole island. The fortified monastery is amazing. The stairs to each level were easy to climb, and the views were fantastic. The weather was perfect and the gentle sea breeze felt like a life-giving elixir. A few hours is long enough to see everything.
