Trip Planner: Europe / France / Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur / French Riviera - Cote d'Azur / Cannes / Lérins Islands
The Romans first settled Lérins Islands, a group of four Mediterranean islands which now belong to the commune of Cannes. Tiny, forested Île Sainte-Marguerite housed the fortress where the Man in the Iron Mask was imprisoned for 11 years. His cell can be seen in the Museum of the Sea, which also houses archaeological discoveries from shipwrecks off the coast of the island. Guided tours in English are available. The other three islands are Île Saint-Honorat, Îlot Saint-Ferréol, and Îlot de la Tradelière, the last two of which are uninhabited. Île Saint-Honorat is now inhabited and run by monks, who pray and make wine in their leisure time. You can visit the 11th-century monastery ruins.

We were a little worried that this Island would not be worth the 16 Euro ferry ride as we had already visited the larger island off Cannes (Margueritte) and absolutely loved it because it is so beautiful and a fantastic contrast from the hustle and bustle of the town. However we had half a day to spare and we are so glad that we visited it. Although it is small it kept on delivering with lots to see.
Very nice island near cannes. I recommand to change swimming spot all hours to see beautiful places.
