Took a walk around the fort - fantastic views. It takes about an hour or so and you can walk up and down a variety of steps. Not for mobility impaired people.

We went to the fort kind of by accident. We walked across not realising there would be a guided tour. It was 6 euros per person and well worth it. The guide was very knowledgeable and seemed very into his subject. The tour lasted quite...More

It is easy to see why this spot was so important in Medieval times and later. Great views of the clear water, beaches, and the surrounding area! Take a look!

Wait for low tide to go visit this remnants of the sea defenses of Saint Malo. The fort has been restored and is well worth the visit.

As part of the history of St Malo it is great to visit but be aware that this was part of the other fortification on small islands designed to destroy anyone being daring enough to enter the area by sea..mainly the nasty English.

The entrance will cost you 6 euro per adult and 4 for youngster. All the explanations are in French and the old man giving the lecture is really nice and fun. Being French he makes fool of the Brits and Dutchs which pleases French nationals....More

This fort is very small. We viewed it from Ile de Grand Be, as the water levels were rising, and it was very gray and miserable that day too. Its very scenic, but there isnt much to it. Its a fantastic walk there when the...More

Check the tide hours before leaving, the hotel "porte saint pierre" has them displayed outside. Back and forth, with stops to enjoy the views, it s a good 1 h30 walk. Our 2 sons (7&5) enjoyed climbing everywhere and crossing the ocean. We did not...More

Walking the ramparts is free. There is a lot to see that doesn't cost anything.
