Île Sainte-Marguerite reviews
One of the best crystalline beaches of the French Riviera. It is no surprise that expensive yachts are anchored here enjoying the natural swimming pool. This wonderful beach is on the opposite side of where the passenger boats arrive. Everything is natural. It also means that there are practically no public toilets and the existing ones are are not decent. Better take the food with you. The restaurants are expensive, they don't serve you well and you eat badly. The best is the beach with white sand (there are many beaches with rocks before discovering the wonderful Aruba style beach with white sand). You'll recognize that beach because all the yachts are there near the shore.
If you are around Cannes, take your time to visit this small, but very photogenic island. Great walks with incredible secret corners and views of the downhill coast. During the summer, there are many tourists, but it was worth it.
