Cannes to Îles Lérins Yacht Charter Itinerary
Cannes to Îles Lérins and Cap d'Antibes Day Boat Rental Itinerary
If you are in Cannes and want to take a boat out for the day but St Tropez or Monaco are too far, we recommend you visit the historic Iles de Lérins and Cap d'Antibes with your boat rental for a more relaxed day on the water plus some unique views of the islands and Cannes itself. The islands are literally right off the coast from Cannes, but a world apart in serenity and natural beauty. The following is a lovely itinerary for your day boat rental in Cannes to enjoy the peaceful and historic Lerin Islands, away from the fast pace of Cannes.
Setting off by 10am, head out of Port Canto, just next to Palm Beach and head over to the Cap d'Antibes, passing by the party beaches of Juan les Pins before taking a look at the world famous Eden Roc hotel. From here you have a straight run across open sea back towards Cannes and the Iles de Lérins. There are several celebrity villas in the area - see our page about celebrity villas and movie star hangouts on the French Riviera if you're interested in seeing them!
The Iles de Lérins are made up of the Ile St Marguerite and the Ile St Honorat. Ile Ste Marguerite is the larger of the two, and is a national park home to the famous Fort Royal which held the Man in the Iron Mask whose identity still remains a mystery today.
Cruise past this impressive structure, perched high above on sheer rocks before making your way round to the smaller St Honorat, with her impressive Monastère Fortifié facing out towards the open Mediterranean, which is still home to Cistercian monks who have inhabited the island since the 11th Century.
After taking in both islands, come round and through the channel between the two islands, ready to drop anchor and enjoy lunch on board the boat. You can either go ashore and enjoy lunch there as a picnic, or in one of the restaurants near the Fort, or alternatively stay on the boat and enjoy the waters of the Mediterranean by jumping in and going for a swim off the back of the boat.
Relax and make the most of the afternoon by either lazing around on the boat or going ashore to explore. Whatever your decision, seeing the islands in this way is a truly magical charter and a great day out for groups of all sizes.
