Îles de Lerins
Several companies offer a wide choice of sail boats and boat trips to these beautiful and relatively wild islands. Less than half an hour's boat ride away, the smaller of the two islands, Saint-Honorat, has an active monastery, a museum and an abbey. The larger, Sainte-Marguerite Island's claim to fame is its old fort, where the legendary Man in the Iron Mask was imprisoned. Also worth a look while visiting this pleasant car-free sanctuary is the Musee de la Mer , which is home to an impressive collection of archaeological treasures and relics.
During a 3 week holiday in France, we spent 2 great days on Ste Marguerite. Lovely shaded paths for quite walks, the fort and museum are very interesting and there is some nice swimming and snorkelling. Overall, a very good value day out and so different to the bustle of Cannes.
Cannes is a great holiday destination, and these islands are a treat
The islands just off the coast of Cannes is a peaceful place to get away for a day from the crowds in Cannes in the summer. The island of Saint Margerite offers vistors many shaded paths that cross the island there are also several restaurants that are OK. What I like most about this island is the beaches on the side opposite Cannes. They are quiet and if you are early enough you can get a prime spot. Friends and I have been there snorling several times and you can find a variety of marine life there. Once a location of a Roman fortess. The modern day fortes is said to have held The Man in the Iron Mask. The island is a must see.
Hotel with restaurant and bar is situated overlooking the beach, 12 km from La Rochelle; 15 km from La Rochelle
