What activities is more convientent from Cannes vs from Nice

This time I consider Cannes as a base in comparison with the prior stays in Nice.

I would like to have an idea about the activites/places which are more convinent from there.

The first guess is Islands or boat trip to Sant Tropez but any other ideas?

As well as the two you mention (Isles de Lerins and St Tropez):

Vieux Le Cannet, Mandelieu La Napoule and the Henry Clewes museum and chateau, Mougins, Valbonne, Mouans Sartoux, Antibes, Golfe Juan, Vallauris, Juan Les Pins, the Corniche de l' Esterel, Frejus, Grasse, Gorges du Verdon, Castellane, Digne Les Bains, Moustiers Ste Marie etc. spring to mind

Activites/places which are more convenient from Cannes vs Nice?

Well sitting on the beach, for start. The Port Canto-end of the Croisette is absolutely gorgeous sandy bay and shallow sheltered waters, with that same delicious skyline of the Esterel.

Definitely as suggested, Vieux Cannet. Take the bus from the bus station around 2 - 3 km to Le Cannet - E Leclerc - and stroll into old le Cannet, and the rue St Sauver, making room for lunch or dinner as suits at Place Bellvue. It doesn't get much better.

Even more definitely a boat to St Honnorat with picnic basket and chilled Rose in service, find your own personal bay and mediterranean pine for shade.

Bus or train to Juan les Pins and walk the circumference of Cap d'Antibes. If you get the timing right talke a look at Roman Abramovich's renovated Chateau de la Croe, and on arrival at Antibes check out the boats in the yacht club.

Should keep you out of mischeif briefly
