What people are saying about Cannes

The short 15-minute crossing to reach the island was perfect, the island is majestic, very beautiful views of the fort and the port, to reach the bridges of the island are relatively perilous, no indications, some small directional signs would be appreciated, the guides are present only for the fort and not for the island, the very appreciable point is the dominant restaurant, life is superb and the menu for seafood lovers is excellent, I recommend the sea bream, fish in general especially the paella. Be curious, the coves on the coast along the sea are very beautiful.☺️

Highly recommended to take the ferry to the island. The kids loved it! The island itself is easily accessible. Fort is still a nice walk uphill. We quickly looked for a pebble beach. Water shoes are highly recommended.

Prompt service when exchanging digital tickets for paper ones. Got in an earlier boat as we were there early. Comfortable seats, short crossing.

Being in Cannes is wonderful and getting to know the surroundings is sensational.

Quiet island to rest from the hustle and bustle of the city.
