15 MIN
Departing from Cannes

Just a few minutes by boat from Cannes, Sainte-Marguerite Island is an exceptional island where nature, culture and relaxation join in total harmony. As soon as you disembark, you will be captivated by the fragrance of pine and eucalyptus, as well as the richness of cultural and leisure activities available on the island.

The best way to explore the island is to follow the marked trails that take you on a botanical and historical tour of the site.

You will stroll by the Batéguier pond with its numerous species of migratory birds to the Point de la Convention to find unique plant species.

Continue on to the Fort Royal, the former residence of the Man in the Iron Mask. The Maritime Museum is not to be missed; sheltered within a fortified enclosure, it offers visitors an insight into the area’s history.

For lovers of pure relaxation Sainte-Marguerite Island really is not to be missed.

Dogs are welcome on board our ferries and on Sainte Marguerite Island (on leash).


Departures everyday as well as Sundays and holidays.

Bicycles, scooters, harpoon fishing and drones are not permitted on Sainte Marguerite Island.

The big day has arrived!
