Island Day Trip

If you fancy a cheap day trip to a nearby island, Île Sainte-Marguerite is the perfect choice.  It is just a fifteen minute boat ride from Cannes and the coast of a return ticket is only 11,50€.  You can explore the island at your leisure with the last boat in the summertime returning at 7pm. The “île Sainte-Marguerite” is the biggest island of the four “îles de Lérins” islands, in front of Cannes. It was the jail of the famous “Man in the Iron Mask”.

There are many little paths across the island and you can find many peaceful spots to sunbathe and have a swim.  If you get thirsty you can buy a drink from the boat that travels around the island selling snacks and cold cans.  If you’ve decided to foget you are a budget hostel guest for the day then you could treat yourself to a bottle of champagne!
