Come and join us on the first of our excursions this year with a simple picnic on Ste Marguerite Island off Cannes. It’s just a quick 10 minutes boat trip across the bay and then a 15-20 minute walk to a chosen picnic spot facing Ste Honoré. For those wanting more than just a picnic you can take a walk around the island (approx 2 hours) or just meander around parts of it. There are also other sites to visit like the Fort Royal or Maritime Museum.
We will meet at the Cannes ferry terminal which is at the end of the Old Port in Cannes at 11.45 am in order to catch the 12.00 noon ferry. We plan to return on the 3.15 pm ferry but you are free to come and go at other times. We will bring some wine and glasses over with us but you must pack your own picnic lunch and something to sit on if you require it.
It’s just a relaxed way to catch up with friends and to meet new ones after a very hot summer. Cost per person return is from €13.50 – €15.00.
As there is no advantage in purchasing tickets as a group each person will be responsible for their own ticket purchase (this can be done online or at the ferry office).
Please reply to us by email to let us know if you are coming (email@example.com). Our picnic spot will be near the Etang – La Portégue cove.
Come and have fun in the sun.
