High tides at Mont Saint Michel
The highest tides in Europe ! A fascinating, unique spectacle !
Twice a day the tide goes out and comes in over 15 kilometres in the bay of Mont Saint Michel
Good to know :
- The highest tides take place 36 to 48 hours after full or new moons, depending on atmospheric conditions.
- During spring tides, make sure you arrive 2 hours before so you can watch the tide come in.
- Never venture into the bay of Mont Saint Michel without a professional guide. Every year people are caught out by the speed with which the tide comes in.
