Wonderful view

Terrace along the west façade of the abbey (it seems to be the main entrance) Unique views over the entire bay. It is possible to see almost the entire coast. The best time to see it is at low tide, where you can see the grandeur of this wonderful bay

Marvellous view
Jul 2020
This is a must-see spot in the evening hours. This view is hard to forget! You can see the land and the sea miles away. To reach it, you should reach the old abbey garden, pass the church and then walk outside. This is the end of the route, so to say.
Due to Coronavirus restrictions you will be asked to keep your mask on during the whole visit.

This is the area just in front of the Church with the statue of St. Michael on the roof. It required a bit of walking up some stairs from the entrance to get here. The area is quite large and has a really nice view of the surrounding area. It is also a nice place to get a photo of the church. A great place for group photos.

Beautiful views 😁

The terrace is located within the abbey. It is just before you enter the church and the views from this vantage point are wonderful!!

The restrooms on the right just before you entered the greeting are the only ones for the entire visit!! None when you exit either!! They offer free group tours in different languages at the counter and they are excellent - just before you walk out onto the terrace.

Mont Saint Michel was a life experience: )

Wow

Visit of the Monte-Sint-Michel.
Aug 2019
On your way to the top you will have to climb the endless stairs to the top, this witht the sound of the ever-present seagulls who are breaking the silence that it is a sweet delight, but you will be anyhow rewarded with the beautiful views from the terrace. Although there are visitors everywhere, it is rare to be alone. Some of the flagstones outside on the patio had crosses or numbers on them to indicate whose work this was due to.

Join the Sea Gulls

The view from the western terrace is amazing and one is surrounded by noisy seagulls soaring and flying overhead. Although there is much climbing, one is rewarded with an opportunity to enjoy a one-of-a-kind experience as part of the overall Mont St. Michel visit. Lots of photo ops and much fresh air to go along with the views.

Take the time to linger

This terrasse is part of the Abbey complex. It is a big, beautiful terrace with plenty of great views and seating. You can see the stone masons' identifying marks on some of the blocks in the terrace itself. This is one place in Mont St. Michel that has enough room to comfortably accommodate tourists.

Gives another aspect
Jul 2019
This beautiful place has lots of viewing opportunities, but this terrace looks out and down, giving a really wide aspect. and also some places to sit - watching picture takers is an added enjoyment.

Wonderful terrace with views of the ocean and the church
Aug 2018 • Friends
Terrasse de l'Ouest is located in the Mont-Saint-Michel, in Normandy, in the North of France. It is located inside the complex of the abbey, just in front of the church. Really it is a wonderful terrace, from where you can see the church and the great views of the ocean, which go far in few hours: it is a mystical landscape. Wonderful!
