What people are saying:

The Air Islands are four small Mediterranean islands near the French Riviera in Cannes. The two largest islands in this group are St. Margaret Island and St. Honolat Island. The smaller islands of Saint-Ferréol and Tradelière are uninhabited. Saint Margaret is the largest island in the sailing archipelago, about half a mile from the small town of Cannes on the French Riviera. The island is about 3 kilometers long and 900 meters wide. ÎleSaint-Honorat is the second largest island in the sailing archipelago, about one mile from the small town of Cannes on the French Riviera. The island is about 1.5 kilometers long (east-west) and 400 meters wide. Since the fifth century, the two islands have been the residence of monastic communities. It is a popular tourist attraction. Lerin Monastery and the 15th-century fortress monastery are open to visitors, and the monastery shop sells various monastery goods, including wine and honey produced on the island. Although this modern monastery is used as a retreat for Christians, it is not open to tourists. Cannes has regular commercial ferries serving the island throughout the year.
