We decided on this island as it seemed somewhat more specialized and we were pleased with what was available. Some great views completed by a great meal.

A respectfull visit to the tiny Crimea War cemetary on Sainte-Marguerite is a must. Try to visit the islands off season. They are unique

Just a 20 minute ferry trip from Cannes port to Ile d'Honorate. Lovely monasteries including a fortified monastery are well worth visiting. Clear waters provide great snorkelling & swimming all around the island.
