St Marguerite Island

If you’re visiting Cannes, and are a little bored because you arrived in any month other than May, guess what? There’s hope! You invest EUR 13 for a return to the isle of St Marguerite. This is the biggest of the islands in front of Cannes, and has lovely hiking trails/paths. There is a monastery on the island too, so there is more than enough to see. Besides, when was the last time you were on an island anyway?
Tickets can be bought at the harbor, at Trans Cote d’Azur
Ferries go from 7:30 until 12:30, and to get back to Cannes from 13:00 until 17:30. For around EUR40 you can get a return trip from Nice and back, leaving at 9h00 in the morning, and returning at 19h00.

Just under 20 minutes from Cannes by boat
