- Several companies offer a wide choice of sail boats and boat trips to these beautiful and relatively wild islands. Less than half an hour's boat ride away, the smaller of the two islands, Saint-Honorat, has an active monastery, a museum and an abbey. The larger, Sainte-Marguerite Island's claim to fame is its old fort, where the legendary Man in the Iron Mask was imprisoned. Also worth a look while visiting this pleasant car-free sanctuary is the Musée de la Mer, which is home to an impressive collection of archaeological treasures and relics.
