Great views

A relatively short walk around here, but rewarding great views, especially at low tide. Might be crowded during weekends, but nevertheless worthy the effort.

It's on the way from Mont St. Michel to St. Malo, and offers wonderful seaside vistas. Can see a lot while driving about, or even better while walking. Super views back towards Mont St. Michel. Nice...

The GR runs by here and takes you to some great views and great beaches. We stayed at the municipal campsite which has direct access to the GR and is a short walk to the beach. Views from the campsite over Mont St Michel in the distance are quite stunning. Great place to visit.

This point stretches far out to sea near Cancale on the coast road to St Malo. We went by bike but there were many cars visiting. Great views, worth a visit.

Incomparable views of the whole coast as far as Mont-St-Michel. The paradise for birds and dolphins. Free parking with lot of space. Nice hotel-restaurant with very good coffee.

The promontory of Grouin offers breathtaking 360 degrees views of the Baie de St.Michel, including the Mont St.Michel and the Isles de Chaussey. A paradise for seabirds and an occasional haunt of dolphins (which we ourselves unfortunately did not see)

Spectacular view. We took a lot of pictures from the area and the bay of the Mont-Saint-Michel. We arrived by bike from Saint-Malo, so had no parking problems.

We visited the pointe, as a suggestion from our hotel owner as part of a days drive and explore from Mont St Michel to St Malo. The views are second to none, with views from both sides, parking is limited so expect to wait during busy times, the pointe is also very busy with walkers and dogs, so don't expect... More

We visit here after going to cancale oyster market. It's superb with fantastic view and we can even see Mont st Michel! Good exercise after a big oyster feast. Take number 8 bus from cancale eglise, can reach here after 4-5 stops.
