Mont Saint Michel bay

Mont Saint Michel bay

Tucked between Granville and Cancale lies the Bay of Mont Saint Michel, home to one of the greatest religious gems of the western hemisphere. At first view this immeasurably flat plain is just a tidal salt marsh but for those who know how to take the time to walk and observe, it becomes a living theatre. From the top of the granite cliffs of Champeaux you admire the bay and then continue over the foothills of St Jean le Thomas to where pilgrims began their journey to the Mont at low tide. At the beginning this Mont was nothing but a huge block of granite over which proud cathedral architects fought to erect the work of art which is now the abbey. Finally turning your back on this abbey continue your walk along the Duchesse Anne seawall. This feature has allowed man to reclaim and cultivate the land up to the cliff of Roz. Arriving in the oyster port of Cancale you will be seduced by its peaceful beauty; unique flora, both subtle and wild; and thousands of birds breeding, nesting or just flying over the bay.
