Île Sainte-Marguerite is an incredibly lush island paradise, like a shiny emerald surrounded by clear turquoise waters. The ruggedly beautiful coastline gives the impression of being miles away from civilisation, but this time looks are definitely deceiving.
All you have to do is turn around to see that the island is not all that secluded. Actually the lively and metropolitan Cannes is only a stone’s throw away. To be precise, the island is only about a half a nautical mile away from the city. Regardless of the vicinity, the island is definitely a world of its own.
What to Do There
Apart from a few quiet restaurants with sunny patios the island doesn’t really have much in the way of activities – the biggest attraction is the island itself, with its beautiful and diverse nature.
The island is traversed by small sandy roads, twirling past olive groves, exotic flowers, thick forests and wonderful ocean views.
The coastline is rather rocky and even the smallest wind hits the island with full force, so it’s not really the best place for sun worshipping. It is a paradise for hikers, though!
How to Get There
Île Sainte-Marguerite is connected to Cannes and Juan-les-Pins by regular ferry service with Riviera Lines.
The island has an abundance of charming natural paths and great views of the mainland
