The two Lerin islands, Saint Marguerite and Saint Honorat, have enough history of their own to impress. Only a short boat ride away from Cannes, both the islands are in the grips of an atmosphere of mystery, perhaps even mysticism. Their natural eucalyptus and pine forests only enhance this feeling.

Smaller than its cousin, this island is made magical by the monks that chant in the Lerin’s Abbey here. The monks have been here almost continuously since about the 5th century. Believe it or not, they actually have an industry – producing red and white wines, honey, lavender oil and Lerina(the island’s own liqueur).  They have a gift shop for you souvenir hunters. Only about 10 boats are allowed to the island from Cannes everyday. The small beaches are perfect for sunbathing and snorkelling. Also remember to check out the cannonball batteries of 2000 metres range on each end of the island. This was necessary defence – the island was invaded many, many times by different forces.

  • The beaches here make for a much less crowded option compared to the public and/or expensive beaches on the mainland.
  • On Saint Honorat you may not smoke, light an open fire, make noise or pick flowers.
