Natural Feature
“Picnic on the Island - Sainte Marguerite island is the most beautiful natural area of the French Riviera. A great way to spend a day there is to prepare a picnic and snorkle. This point that I put here is not a specific place, but eastward after this area you'll be more likely to find a spot under pine trees shadow with few people.”
