It's fantastis to see how Grand Be is an island on some part of the day and a few hours later it becomes fully accesssible by foot. It's great to see both "versions" of Le Grand Be. Make sure to check before the visit what time it's possible to visit Grand Be on a certain day (what time it's a low tide moement ) and when it becomes an island again.

Although there is not much on the Grand Bé, it is still worth a visit if you are nearby. Standing on the Grand Bé gives the opportunity to see the city walls and out to sea from a different angle. Somewhere on the island, there is Tomb Chateaubriand which is also worth a visit if there is time.

The path to and from the island is only accessible at lower tide levels, so plan accordingly where possible to ensure that you can get both on and OFF the Grand Bé. After the tide had come over the path, we watched people wading through the water from the nearby rampart.

The lowering tide reveals the causeway to Le Grand Be for a nature walk around this small island. Offering a different view of the walled city and the chance to leave the hustle and bustle of the ramparts, City streets and packed beaches behind.

Amazing to see Chateaubriand’s tomb beautifully located looking out over the bay. Many destroyed bunkers on the island from WW2 and shell craters. Its a lovely view from the island, and dont get caught out by high tide, or you will have to wait until it recedes.

The lowering tide reveals the causeway to Le Grand Be for a nature walk around this small island. Offering a different view of the Ramparts but make sure you keep an eye on the tides or you will get stranded!!

A modern hotel in the northern part of the walled city of Saint Malo.
Modern amenities, magnificent staff who go out of their way to make your visit comfortable.
Located close to the wall where you can start your experience and also close to all that Saint Malo offers.

Enjoy the walk to the Grand and petit be. We did not visit the fort. Watch for the tides to avoid getting stranded. Beautiful place to pay your respects to Chateaubriant
