Île Sainte-Marguerite


Lunch with a view. A delicious takeaway salad from Ô Naturelle in Cannes.

We found a little beach hidden away on the other side of the island.
 A snack boat was driving around the island all day. I loved that! We ran out of water so luckily this guy had some, expensive but needed in the heat!
On the train on our way back to Nice

Hi babes! Île Sainte-Marguerite was really beautiful and us visiting this island or even knowing about it was result of me googling frantically after fun day trips and places with nice beaches along the coast. I had mentioned to Jamie previously that I’d love to go and a boat somewhere and tadaaa, I found Île Sainte-Marguerite.

You can buy a ticket for a day trip on a boat straight from Nice but it was a lot more expensive than just going to Cannes by train and then getting the boat from there. When we we arrived in Cannes we went to salad and sandwich bar called Ô Naturelle where you make your own salad by choosing from all their delicious ingredients. I was over the moon with this option and went slightly overboard with all my salad ingredients hehe. It’s always the risk when you get to choose yourself like that. Jamie got two sandwiches, one as a snack and one for lunch.

We then got tickets for the 15 minute boat ride and off to Sainte-Marguerite we went. Slightly worried we were heading towards a massive tourist trap and that the island would be crowded with people. This was not the case at all! It was like entering a new world, it felt almost like walking around in Jurassic World or something. At some points we were even alone walking around in the forest. As soon as we got off the boat I had to have my salad because I was starving! We sat down on a bench with the most amazing view and devoured my massive salad. I did not think I would be able to eat it all, but I did hehe.

The rest of the afternoon we explored the island and then chilled on a beach we came across. It was amazing. Unfortunately it had a bit of litter that had been washed ashore from the sea. As we were lying there a snack boat arrived serving snacks, drinks and ice cream. A really nice idea!

We stayed there for a couple of hours until it was time to head back to Nice. It was a really nice and relaxing day trip if you’re looking for something to do on your holiday on Côte d’Azur.
