Our opinion on the Saint Pierre Cove

Adresse of the Saint Pierre Cove : Chapelle St Pierre 06400 Ile de St Honorat

The Saint-Pierre Cove on Saint-Honorat Island is located next to the Saint-Pierre chapel and the abbey. It is the most difficult cove to find because the access point is camouflaged among the vegetation. This cove is known only to faithful patrons of the area. It is also one of the most beautiful with its round shape formed by the rock formation surrounding it. You will also find a few small sand benches (very narrow and very rare on the island). As with all coves, it is rather small so you'll have to arrive early to find a place!

To reach this cove from the landing stage, take the trail that traverses the island and faces the dock. At the end of this trail turn left toward the abbey. Just before the Saint-Pierre chapel, on the right, there is a mini-tunnel in the vegetation. The cove is just beyond.

Cove of St Pierre - Saint Honorat island - Ile de Lérins

Here we have one of the most original small coves of Saint-Honorat Island. Roundly-shaped and surrounded by rock, it is hidden and thus not well-known.

The cove is frequented solely by regulars. On the shore there are pebblestones and a bit of sand. In the water, some stones and gravel but this is without doubt one of the easiest coves to swim in.
