FIRST STEP: RENT A BICYCLE

 

 

I left EDD hostel and went to rent a bike at the shop “Romé Cycle” in Dol de bretagne. They have good price for bike renting for a day.

It’s really easy to get to the Mont Saint-Michel’s Bay from Dol de Bretagne as there is a cycling path ! ( Voie verte ) You only need to follow it ! Departure from Rue des Murets, close to the cathedral.

LET’S SEE THE PANORAMA VIEW FROM MONT DOL

 

It takes more or less one hour if you don’t stop anywhere. But why not start your day with a wonderful view of Mont Saint-Michel’s Bay from the top of the Mont-Dol? From up there, you will get a gorgeous view and will be able to see things at miles away! You can even see the Mont Saint-Michel itself if the weather is clear enough! Plus, sunsets and sunrises are juste gorgeous from up there 😉

Just a tip, let your bike at the bottom and walk to to the top!

I arrived to the Mont Dol, and saw the beautiful Mont Saint-Michel’s Bay with its Mont Saint-Michel then I went down to take back the voie verte . Follow direction Vivier Sur Mer. You will ride in the middle of fields. How nice it is to feel the nature on that countryside road !

 

 

10:45 AM

I finally arrived to Hirel and took a good rest watching a view of the bay of Mont Saint-Michel . It felt so good to smell the salty scent of the sea !

 

11:30 AM

I did land sailing for one and a half hours. Even tho’ that was my first experience, I wasn’t scared because the staff showed me how to sail properly . I really enjoyed it ☺

 

IT IS YOUR TURN NOW !

LUNCH TIME !

 

I decided to eat something before heading back to EDD hostel, and there is a place I make sure to go every time I’m at the Mont Saint-Michel’s Bay. The restaurant is called ” La Dégustation Tonneau“! They have fresh oysters , mussels , fish soup and other delicious sea products from the Mont Saint-Michel’s Bay .

14:45 PM

I walked around the Mont-Saint-Michel’s Bay after my lunch because I wanted to feel one last time the wind from the sea, and then I was ready to go back to Dol de Bretagne.

16:15 PM

Came back to EDD hostel and talked about my day with the staff and some customers who were staying there ☺

 

 

I love Mont-Saint-Michel Bay !

 

Mont-Saint-Michel’s Bay is always calm and there are many activities around. You can enjoy and chill there even if you don’t want to do sport ! Observe the birds, people, animals, the sea… To simply chill out is the secret to happiness when you’re in Brittany!

Cancale and of course the Mont-Saint-Michel are absolutely wonderful, don’t miss any chances to visit thoses places 🙂
