I could not believe how far out the water went allowing groups of tourists and horseriders the opportunity to see the month from unique viewpoints. If only I had the courage. Maybe.

The walk across the bridge to the mount is lovely with great views either side. It takes about 30 minutes rather than getting the bus but there was a huge queue for the bus anyway.

You can do walks around the bay but you need to understand that there is areas of quicksands through here and the tide can rush in very quickly - people have died. If you are determined to do the bay - research for the guided...More
