    Great little island for walking and enjoying nature away from the hustle and bustle in Cannes etc .. Were there at the end of January 2020, it was wonderful weather, restaurants only open from April, there are no drinks or snacks until then, be sure to pack food for the trip !!

    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 :-(

    Lovely ferry trip! Fort is fantastic with fab views! Beaches not good

    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!
