We went there February 2017. The trip there was very pleasant, although a bit expensive. You can save a couple of Euros by paying online which were really easy to do. The nature at the island is very nice and there are lots of nice picnic areas. However the fort was a big disappointment. On top of that, all restaurants... More

If you have at least half of the day, spend it there. It takes only 10-14 min to get to the island by boat from Cannes. It goes several times per day. The island has many walking paths both by the shore and in the forest. There is also old fort there to visit. While walking you can also find... More

Just a few minutes by boat from Cannes, Sainte-Marguerite Island is an exceptional island where nature, culture and relaxation join in total harmony. As soon as you disembark, you will be captivated by the fragrance of pine and eucalyptus, as well as the richness of cultural and leisure activities available on the island. The best way to explore the island... More

Not so different from the whole south of france in terms of weather or plants ,the main difference is the castle and the prisoner with iron mask ,the island is beautiful enough to spend hours and enjoy heavenly weather

Loved strolling around this mini-island, getting to see the fortress with the man with the iron mask prison and getting lost in the beautiful sea view forest. The weather was wintery so I can imagine this place is magic with the perfect weather! But still even in winter if weather permits it's a great way to pass some time, maybe... More

A pleasant day out by boat to see a pretty island. Good for woodland walk of about 1 1/2 hours around rocky shoreline with nice spots to picnic and bathe. Worthwhile!

We took the short ferry ride across the harbor to spend the day at Ile Ste Marguerite. Competition for beach space was fierce, but we eventually found a spot. The views are spectacular, the water is like bathwater and the setting is delightful.
