By far the most relaxing island I've ever had the honour to visit. 15 minute boat ride and the monastery was amazing. You can explore at your own pace and there are so many places to discover. Ferry is 14EUR but the island is free...More

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.

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.

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 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.

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...More

It's like 15 minutes rapid boat trip from harbour next to the Palais, it's good place for a picnic (a few spots) and walk through nice pine forest.
