Another Island near Antibes
The neighbour of “Ile Sainte Marguerite” is called “Ile Saint Honorat”. Here too, you can walk through the woods and enjoy fantastic views of the Mediterranean.
But you must also discover the rich monastic history of this island, which dates back to the 5th century. The construction of the fortified monastery was carried out between the 11th and the 15th century and today the buildings are open to visitors. Wine and spirits are produced by the Cistercians monks who live in the island, and make up the “Abbaye de Lérins” community.
“Ile Saint Honorat” is accessible through various ferry companies who operate in Cannes. From there, it takes only 15 min to reach the island.
