Ile Sainte-Marguerite Reviews
A short boat ride, complete with stellar views of the city, Antibes, beyond. Wilderness, birds, and the sparkling blue sea. Bring a picnic lunch. more »
A lovely trip lasting just fifteen minutes on a very comfortable boat but the memory will last for ever. Once you disembark head for the Fort and enjoy the tranquillity of the place. A memorable trip. more »
Very relaxed atmosphere, incredible mix of forests and beach. The ferries were very timely, the personal friendly, only a very short trip from Cannes. You have two restaurants and two snacks on the small island. Several spots for water. All is clean and well maintained. Two important points for us: dogs are allowed on the island also on the beaches and smoking is forbidden. The beach is mostly stony, thus better to have adapted shoes.
