Take a short boat ride from Cannes to Sainte-Marguerite Island for a respite from the crowded French Riviera. Enjoy the island’s natural beauty.
What people are saying about Lérins Islands
the island is beautiful, we visited with our 4-years old son in late January and also spent nice time there. Except for the Royal forth, you can walk around in the nice nature, around and in the island. You can spend there 1 hour or 4. Just take some food and drink with you if you go off-season, there are no restaurants or shops open. The only disappointment was, that we bought tickets via GetYourGuide for our son as well, because there was written "children 4-12". However, later I found original web-pages of the ferry company, where you can buy tickets slightly cheaper and olso "children 5-12". So 4-years old are free :-(
The ferry ride was very short , service with a smile and good value. The island itself has lovely secluded coves for sunbathing and swimming, plenty of shady spots with picnic tables and is certainly worth a visit. The booking company were very understanding about a family crisis we experienced on the day of our original booking and we were able to rebook without a problem.
Good organisation to ferries; remember to exchange voucher for tickets at the office. Lovely crossing; beautiful views. Fort fantastic; well worth a visit. Beaches/coves really not that appealing for a swim due to the dried seaweed on the beach which resembles feathers!!!! Yuk... best avoided; go for a walk & then head to Cannes beaches!
Great day away from the bustle of Cannes. Lovely historic village. Pack water, swimming costume and reef shoes and find a place to chill out.
The ferry arrived on time and kept to the schedule. It was large enough for the many visitors going to the island without being crowded
