Had a very relaxing walk. Exploring the fortified monastery of Abbey Lérins was the best part. The Church and monastery was unexpectly charming with the palm trees and flowers. Would have stayed the whole day <3

One of the most magical spots on the planet. Ile St Honorat has a particular calm which doubtless emanates from the Franciscan monks whose silent order glides over dusty gravel. They make some of the finest wines in the south of France and the restaurant...More

Remote island with original monastery, wine tasting, and lovely restaurant for lunch. Bought wine and liqueurs before taking the boat back to Cannes.

It' s a beautiful to spend the day in front of Cannes. Take the shuttle boat to go there. You can buy a picnic on the island or eat at the restaurant, one affordable on each island. Enjoy

Iles de Lerins is definitely the place to be in Cannes. The clear blue sea, beautiful small buildings and the marvelous landscape make the island to a unique unforgettable adventure.

Great location but food not as good as expected. Brandade of cod was disgusting. Dry and a small plate with just mashed potato on top and a bowl of rocket salad. Not impressed quite expensive for a beach side style restaurant. Would think twice about...More

Despite the numbers travelling across on the boat, once there it was easy to get away from the crowds and enjoy the peace, quiet and scenery.

On Île Sain-Honorat, there is a restaurant where you can have lunch though I was not there myself at lunch time. The shop next to the monastery sells their home made wines difficult to get anywhere else. You can enjoy a pleasant walk through woods...More

Are the walking paths around the island suitable for strollers? We are coming with our 3 young children and don't want to miss this.

We are cruising in October and will be in Cannes for 1 day. We are doing a lot of guided tours on this trip and would like to do this port on our own.... How accessible would public transportation be from the cruise port? Or, if we decide to go to Monte Carlo & Monacco - could we take a train or bus there?

The port is practically in the Centre of cannes. The cruise ships drop you on the far side of the port. Take the double decker bus which is outside the port (which runs up and down the Croisette / beachfront road and get... More
How far is the ferry from the cruise port in Cannes. Arriving via cruise. Only in Cannes for the day. Is this a good shore excursion to do?
