As a result, Cannes now has a selection of some of the finest fashion boutiques, and no visit here would be complete without a browse through the designer stores that line ‘La Croisette’. A walk around the water’s edge of the old port and Port Pierre Canto will bestow to the visitor a remarkable selection of ostentatious boats that have to be seen to be believed. Cannes is easily accessed from the beaches at Golfe Juan by train, bus or car.
A trip to the Lérins islands, just off the Cannes coastline, is a must-do for visitors to the Golfe Juan area. The closest, Ile St Marguerite, is a mere 15 minute boat ride from the mainland, and boasts some fantastic walking tracks where rare plants and migratory birds can be spotted. The island owns the legendary story of the Man in the Iron Mask, who was imprisoned in the old fort for 11 years. The Ile Saint Honorat is a short hop over from St Marguerite, and is home to a monastery and a series of little chapels, steeped in years of history. Ferries to the islands depart once an hour from Cannes during the summer.
