Admire the spring tides in the Bay of Mont Saint-Michel
At Mont Saint-Michel
At Mont Saint-Michel, the spring tides are a truly magical time! There are several fabulous spots to observe the rising tide around Mont Saint-Michel:
- The Roche Torin in Courtils
- The Pointe du Grouin Sud in Vains
- The bridge in Pontaubault
- The Gué de l’Épine in Val-Saint-Père
With the silhouette of Mont Saint-Michel as a backdrop and a panoramic view across the bay, enjoy the changing landscapes as the sea flows across the sandbanks. You might see the “mascaret”, the famous tidal bore, and if you’re lucky, you could see Mont Saint-Michel become an island again.
To admire the show
To admire the spring tides at Mont Saint-Michel from higher up, head to the belvedere in the Jardin des Plantes in Avranches: expand your horizons! For a different view, why not observe the spring tides from the medieval village? From the West Terrace, inside the Abbey, the Bay of Mont Saint-Michel stretches as far as the eye can see, providing a breathtaking panorama!
