Main Street of Mont Sanit Michel
Jul 2019
Often referred to a King's Gate, this is the entrance to main boulevard of restaurants and shops. During the day expect crowds. If you wish to avoid the hustle and bustle come early or late. In any case, this is not the main reason most visit the abbey. As you ascend, you'll escape the bulk of the crowds and you'll be able to explore the wonderful grounds. To get the most from your visit, I'd suggest a guide to take you through the abbey.

Crowded and over rated
Jul 2019 • Family
Busy busy busy and so many people pushing and thronging in every shop and restaurant which were all over priced. This is not an uplifting experience.

Beautiful architecture, busy during the day
May 2019 • Couples
We arrived during the heat of the day and the porte was very crowded, as one would expect. However, we still loved the beautiful architecture and enjoyed seeing it. Since we were staying at a hotel on the island, we went back at night and it was serene and almost empty. Perfect!

Main entrance to Mont-St-Michel
Aug 2018 • Family
Porte du Boulevard is the main entrance to Mont-St-Michel, an incredible place in Normandy, in the North of France. When you arrive to this place, you go through this gate, so you see it. It is a very beautiful place to enter here.
(see also Abbaye du Mont-St-Michel and Baie du Mont-St-Michel)

Nice Porte
Apr 2019 • Couples
Again read the history and look at this amazing Porte. There are lots of shops in this region so you can buy lots of books about the whole place. Most people go to the shops.

No Crowds in the Evening
May 2018 • Solo
I arrived after 7:30 p.m. (1930 hours). What a perfect time to arrive and walk through this gate, climb the stairs to the ramparts, enjoy a gorgeous view of the bay and take in the sounds of the sea gulls flying overhead. Magical for me.

Free parking in the main parking lot after 7 p.m. Free shuttle bus to the Mont. Last shuttle bus to the parking lot is at midnight.

Enter if you dare.
Aug 2018 • Family
This will be your last chance of some reasonable personal space as once you enter the walls close in and the crowds build. This is the start of a day of queues. If you are to reach the top, this evil has to be overcome.

Impressive gateway to the castle
Sep 2017
It may seem crowded, and usually is, but take some time to stop and admire the construction of this gate, and try to think back how it was used in earlier times when the castle was to be defended.

1 OF 3 GATE TO PASS THROUGH
Mar 2018 • Couples
Boulevard gate is the 2nd gate you pass through enroute to La Grand Rue. There is an English cannon on display in the area between the Porte de l’Avancee and this gate. The tourism office is located to the left just prior to this gate.

Ruined

Too many people and noise. They set up a pretty nice transport system from the parking lots and bus stop. Or you can walk. The hotels are not far from the island. But what a mess.... Find a quiet coastal town.
