Whether you want to sail the ocean or relax on a private beach, Cannes can give you the upscale amenities of a perfect getaway.

There are a number of small islands off the coast of Cannes, and if you are looking for a more secluded beach to spend your days on, the Windward Islands will offer you even more than that.

The smaller of the two islands is Ste Honorat, and here not only will you find immaculate beaches, you will also find ruined castles and monasteries.
