La baie de Cannes s'étend de la Pointe de l'Aiguille aux îles de Lerins Sainte-Marguerite et Saint-Honorat. Elles offrent des promenades uniques sur le littoral des Alpes-Maritimes pour leur calme et leur densité forestière. Le passage du Frioul, qui les sépare, est un des mouillages de prédilection des navigateurs de plaisance. Les fonds sous-marins sont très riches en flore et en faune.

Zone de mouillage largement fréquentée en été durant les feu d'artifices en face de la célèbre croisette. L'abris est médiocre mais acceptable les jours de beau temps.
