From Cannes: Round-Trip Ferry to Ste. Marguerite Island

1. From Cannes: Round-Trip Ferry to Ste. Marguerite Island

Book your round-trip ferry tickets in advance for a visit to Ste. Marguerite Island from Cannes. As soon as you disembark on the island, you’ll be captivated by the fragrance of pine and eucalyptus. Follow the marked trails that take you on a botanical and historical tour of the island. The walk takes you by Batéguier Pond, where numerous species of migratory birds can be seen, and to the Pointe de la Convention, where you’ll find unique plant species. Continue on to Fort Royal, the former residence of the legendary Man in the Iron Mask. The Maritime Museum, sheltered within a fortified enclosure, also offers an invaluable insight into the area's history. Dogs are welcome on board the ferry, and on Sainte Marguerite Island, provided they are on leash.

Great ferry over to the island. The direction to the ferry terminal is a little bit different from what the app says so make sure you go into the parking lot and go all the way down and you go up some wooden steps and the ticketing booth is there if you can see the water you’re not in the right place .

I 100% recommend this activity. The boat crossing was quick and pleasant. The island is beautiful and has plenty of space to explore. I recommend shoes adapted for entering the water because the ground has a lot of pebbles and corals and can hurt your feet.

Very nice, the island is very big so we don't have time to get bored! Good little places to swim, we had a good time, the boat crossing is not long and with a nice view

Great handling! Very beautiful island with lots of nature and stone beach! Don't forget your snorkel and bathing shoes!

It was a very short Ferry transfer from Cannes to St. Marguerite Island, very nice and beautiful views.
