About this activity
This remarkable island, only 600 meters from land, along with its bay, is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites’ list and welcomes more than three million visitors a year, but is home to only around 40 inhabitants.
Its bay is home to some of the quickest, highest and most dangerous tides in Europe.
The Mont Saint-Michel was built on a granite formation that emerged on the bay, a powerful rock 92 meters above sea level at its highest point.
This medieval city is one of the few places in France to have preserved its medieval walls and defenses intact.
Turned to a prison during the French revolution and Empire, the abbey was in need of several restorations.
In 1966, the abbey celebrated its 1000th anniversary and has since been re-occupied by a religious community, ensuring a spiritual presence.
With Rome and Saint Jacques de Compostelle, it was one of the most important places of pilgrimage for the Medieval occident, welcoming hundreds of thousands.
Enjoy a traditional omelette at La Mere Poulard, open since 1888 or watch them prepare this secret souffléd recipe, whisking the eggs in copper pans.
To preserve its bay and the mount itself from the accumulated silt, a hydraulic dam and new bridge was built in 2014 , requiring the visitors to park on the continent and walk or use shuttles to cross the causeway.
Spend your day enjoying the great views, visiting the abbey and its cloister, having lunch in one of the many restaurants, shopping or anything you fancy.
