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.

30 minutes from Cannes by boat, the Fort Royale on this island once held the famous, notorious, mysterious and unidentified Man In The Iron Mask (watch the movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio). This was the usual fate of anyone that the King wanted imprisoned and hidden away without a trial. The fort itself is now named Musee de la Mer (The Museum of the Sea). Also check out

  • The Old Castle Museum
  • State Prisons
  • The Huguenot Memorial (commemorating Protestant pastors who martyred themselves)
  • The prisoner painter Jean Le Gac
  • Roman cisterns (super important because the island has no water source other than rainfall)
  • Shipwrecks Tradiliere (Roman ship) and Bateguier (Saracen)
  • Ancient settlement ruins from 6th  B.C - 4th A.D.

The woods of this lovely island have many pathways that crisscross it’s length and breadth. There’s a few cafés and restaurants on the port area.

St. Marguerite, Cannes Reviews - Write a Review

  • Totally worth visiting. The last ferry to Cannes leaves at 6pm, so don't miss it! 3-4 hours should be enough to walk around and visit the prison. The only thing that I didn't like here is that you can't come close to the lake. But views and pine forest are just great!

  • A beautiful pine forest and an interesting medieval prison museum. Rocky beach and couldn't see the lake because it is surounded by a fence but it is a natural reservation so it makes sense. A lot of beautiful sides which makes it fun to visit.

  • Dont skip this island when visiting the Côte d'Azur!

  • So nice to walk through the forests of the sweet smelling pines

  • Amazing place. There is a boat directly from Cannes, every hour.
