We stopped at the Pointe du Grouin on our way to St Malo and it was well worth the stop. The views are beautiful from all the different points of the Pointe, and depending on the weather you can see the Mont St Michel across...More

This is a lovely walk along the coastline. It's worth taking an extra layer as the wind can make it cold in the exposed areas. Parking is easy about 15-20 minutes from the 'Point' but you can make the walk as long as you like...More
