Beaches and Mont Saint Michel
The coast offers something for everybody with huge beaches and rocky areas. The nearest beach is only 5 minutes drive in the village of Cherrueix, which is renowned for its sand yachting - char a voile. There are organised walks in the Bay of Mont St. Michel from various points in the bay. NB. Walking in the bay is forbidden unless with a certified guide. The bay has the highest tidal range in Europe and it comes in at the speed of a galloping horse!. Come watch the phenomenon of the rising tide.
If you are walking the GR 34 - the Breton coastal path is a few minutes away.
Eating out is a real treat with a fantastic array of restaurants to suit all budgets and tastes. Seafood and galettes are the local specialities. The best oysters can be eaten at Cancale
