Full description

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.

    Beautiful experience that allowed us to get away from the more crowded Cannes to enjoy a day in tranquility on the coasts of Santa Margherita Island. Finding the meeting point was very simple, as was redeeming the tickets. Fortunately, by going to collect the tickets one day in advance, we discovered that the timetable is not binding: you can take any ferry both outward and return. More than recommended activity to appreciate even more the beautiful sea of the Côte d'Azur. Optimal price-quality ratio!

    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 .

    Quick crossing for a beautiful day on the island Overall everything is well organized for boarding only human incivility sometimes makes the return more complicated... people have not yet understood that everyone will be able to leave... yet during the crossing go the commander reminds him! In short, it in no way spoiled our beautiful day!
