Create an itinerary including Ile Saint-Honorat
Situated off the bay of Cannes, Ile Saint-Honorat is an island that has been a place of monastic life ever since the 16th century. Measuring about 1.5 kilometers in length and 400 meters in width, Ile Saint-Honorat currently houses about 30 Cistercian monks. The island has a rich history, despite its very humble appearance. History shows that the island was originally a place of pilgrimage because of the mythological writings of a monk named Raymond Féraud. Around 1635, the Spanish had captured Ile Saint-Honorat and the monks were exiled, only to return two years later when the island had been retaken by the French.

  • Short cruise from Cannes, great views, cute little island, you can walk all around it in like 2 hours. Nature blooming, cicadas playing, nice old monastery (with monks living in it still), a lot of hidden little bays where you can walk on the rocks or swim. Nice restaurant La Tonelle, good food and drinks, service ok.
  • Beautiful little island, but in winter you better be organised for lunch cause everything is closed and in the only shop that's available (the Abbey shop) there is no food and the lady is very very rude ( I think she hates tourists). Everything is really beautiful though.
