A walk along the causeway at low tide, and then onward towards Petit Be, is an essential part of the stay, but the satisfaction is in the doing, not the destination.

Although there is not much on the Grand Bé, it is still worth a visit if you are nearby. Standing on the Grand Bé gives the opportunity to see the city walls and out to sea from a different angle. Somewhere on the island, there...More

As the fort can only be reached when the tide is out, you need to plan your visit. Built in late 1600s to protect St Malo, has a history through to WW2 and now as a historic attraction.

I confess that I hardly spent 10 minutes swimming. The water was probably as warm as 18°C. But the warm sun was encouraging me to do so and this gave me strenghth and energy to continue our journey to Normandy then Paris.

Le Grand Be is only accessible at low-tide. You'll have a nice view of the English channel and see the grave of Chateaubriand, a famous French author.

Start your day there! That would be the most valuable advice, since the tide can go up and you won't be able to reach the island. And it's quite interesting to see the difference of the view through the day...
