Trip Planner: Europe / France / Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur / French Riviera - Cote d'Azur / Cannes / Lérins Islands
The Romans first settled Lérins Islands, a group of four Mediterranean islands which now belong to the commune of Cannes. Tiny, forested Île Sainte-Marguerite housed the fortress where the Man in the Iron Mask was imprisoned for 11 years. His cell can be seen in the Museum of the Sea, which also houses archaeological discoveries from shipwrecks off the coast of the island. Guided tours in English are available. The other three islands are Île Saint-Honorat, Îlot Saint-Ferréol, and Îlot de la Tradelière, the last two of which are uninhabited. Île Saint-Honorat is now inhabited and run by monks, who pray and make wine in their leisure time. You can visit the 11th-century monastery ruins. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Lérins Islands and many more Cannes attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Cannes trip site.

Lérins Islands reviews

Two Islands out of time, so close to Cannes but so far away at the same time. Winter seems to never exist in Saint Margaret and her little sister, Saint Honorat. Modern statues have been immersed between the two Islands making their discovery full of mystery...and fun.
Great place to bring family and friends
Magnificent, do not miss this little corner of paradise 🤩
You can bring your dog, but not your wife in an electric wheelchair 😡👅
Calm and restful. An idyllic setting.
