Ile Sainte-Marguerite

If you have ever seen the film 'The Man in the Iron Mask', you'll want to visit the Ile Sainte-Marguerite, just off the coast of Cannes. It took the mysterious 'Man' 11 years to escape from Fort Royal on this tiny, forested island but nowadays it's a lot easier to get to and from. The island is part of the Lérins islands. The neighboring smaller island is owned by monks who operate an excellent restaurant – definitely worth the trip!
