15 min, 20+ Person Motor Boat with Island Visit with Royal Fort & Maritime Museum

Featured in:

| Updated

This short 15-minute ferry trip from Cannes takes you to the wonderful island of Sainte-Marguerite where you can spend the day exploring the beautiful shoreline, the fort and the Maritime Museum. 

This 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 trees, 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).

The ferry runs all year round with departures approximately every half an hour starting as early ats 07:30 and the last boat returning at 18:00.

Children under 4 go for free! Concessions are available for large families, students, over 65s and teenagers.


Visitor comments

  • "I went on two boat trips with Trans Cote D'Azur one to St Marguerite and the other to St Tropez. The boats are very clean and always left on time, there was also refreshments on board that could be purchased. I booked the trip to St Tropez online prior to going to Cannes, this was an easy process and I paid when I got there. St Tropez is worth a visit and I visited on Saturday when the market was on. The boat ride to St Marguerite is about 15 mins, it is well worth a trip to walk around the small island and relax on the beach." - Trip Advisor
