We went to the fort kind of by accident. We walked across not realising there would be a guided tour. It was 6 euros per person and well worth it. The guide was very knowledgeable and seemed very into his subject. The tour lasted quite...More

It is easy to see why this spot was so important in Medieval times and later. Great views of the clear water, beaches, and the surrounding area! Take a look!

Wait for low tide to go visit this remnants of the sea defenses of Saint Malo. The fort has been restored and is well worth the visit.

Check the tide hours before leaving, the hotel "porte saint pierre" has them displayed outside. Back and forth, with stops to enjoy the views, it s a good 1 h30 walk. Our 2 sons (7&5) enjoyed climbing everywhere and crossing the ocean. We did not...More

This is one of those special attractions which requires proper timing - the tide must be out, or you're swimming in cold water! Once there you'll navigate some pretty steep rock steps to gain entrance. The fort on a small island in the bay offers...More

Walking the ramparts is free. There is a lot to see that doesn't cost anything.
