Île Sainte-Marguerite, off Cannes: The sister island of Saint-Honorat, Sainte-Marguerite has three restaurants and a maritime museum for visitors to enjoy. Beautiful rocky beaches and majestic pines and oaks make this a great place for nature, or visitors can head to the fort that was built to protect the island from the Spanish in the 1600's. A cell in the fort is said to have once held the mythical "Man in the Iron Mask," whose identity remains a mystery.
Antibes: Vielle Antibes is a fantastic place to visit, tucked inside the medieval rampart walls. There are lots of shops and markets to browse in, and for the seafarers, the opportunity to admire the magnificent boats moored in the harbour next door. For modern art lovers, the Musée Picasso holds the entire output, including 200 ceramics, from his exuberant time in the Meditteranean in 1945.
Frejus to Cannes Returning perhaps from the Waterpark at Frejus, or crossing through the forested hills on the quiet back road from Lake Tanneron, you can enjoy a wonderfully scenic drive up the coast, especially in the evening, when the Red Rocks of Esterel glow in the setting sun. The natural beauty of the rocks and deep blue sky and water are stunning.
