Fodor's Expert Review Île Ste-Marguerite

Side Trip from Cannes: Îles de Lerins Island

From the Vieux Port it's a 15-minute, €16.50 round trip to Île Ste-Marguerite. Its Fort Royal, built by Richelieu and improved by Vauban, offers views over the ramparts to the rocky island coast and the open sea. There are only two restaurants—L'Escale and La Guérite (both closed mid-October–spring)—on the island, but they're rather pricey and the service is not as good as the fish; you are paying for food with a view.
