La Vanlée inlet
its remarkable tidal causeway
In the southern part of the Côte des Havres, between Agon-Coutainville and Granville, La Vanlée inlet stretches over 10 hectares of salt marshes and meadows. Its huge sand spit, known as the “edge of the world”, reaches into the sea, forming a unique peninsula. La Vanlée inlet differs from the other estuaries along the coast because of its fascinating tidal causeway. Crossing the inlet right to the sea, the road is completely submerged during very high tides: an impressive sight! At low tide, you can count the “pré-salé” sheep roaming freely on the salt marshes. Why not hop on your bike for a peaceful way to explore this natural heritage site?
