The Bay of Mont Saint Michel
The bay of Mont Saint Michel, situated between Normandy and Brittany, reveals a wide variety of maritime landscapes - Norman and Breton wooded countryside, foreshores and salt meadows, sediment and quicksand... An outstanding natural heritage listed a world humanity site by UNESCO since 1979.
Thanks to the drawdown, a large part of the bay is revealed at low tide. The bay becomes a huge expanse of sand where a whole range of activities can be enjoyed : hiking, nature trails, shellfish gathering, horse rides, flights in a microlight or hot-air balloon.
Not to be missed : the Couesnon flood barrier, Tomberlaine island, the ecomuseum of the bay of Mont Saint Michel...
Things to do : discover the numerous bird species (little Egret, osprey, merlin, Eurasian spoonbill...) and seals which live in the bay, a hike along the GR 233 coastal path or cross the Sée and Sélune rivers with an experienced guide.
