On La Croisette, a mile-long promenade that skirts the shore, you can lookout on the sparkling Mediterranean and the rolling Estérel hills. You can also take in all the glamorous pedestrians, dressed in everything from designer apparel to skimpy bikinis and high heels.
A TripAdvisor user has this to say: “This is an interesting street to stroll, my son had a great time counting all the Ferrari's we passed. ... Definitely the place to go if you like people watching.”

#2 Iles de Lerins
Some travelers find these four islands, just a 15-minute ferry ride away, more interesting than Cannes itself. The two most popular are Île Ste-Marguerite and Île St-Honorat. You can visit Île Ste-Marguerite for the beach; you can also tour the Fort de l'Ile (where the real-life Man in the Iron Mask was imprisoned) or the Musée de la Mer, which holds artifacts from the sea. Or you can head to the smaller Île St-Honorat and meditate at the working monastery, the Abbaye de St-Honorat. If you want some peace and quiet in the great outdoors, you’ll surely find it in this island's forest groves and sandy beaches.
One TripAdvisor traveler loved these islands, especially Île St-Honorat, saying: “The beaches and bays are beautiful. Although there are many people visiting this island, you still can find peaceful, quiet places on this island. We found that the lagune and Dragon's point are the most beautiful surroundings on the island.”
