Did you know that the Mont Saint-Michel’s Bay is one of the most beautiful bay in the world and also that has the biggest tide in Europe ? A long time ago, the sea was reaching till Dol de Bretagne ! Now Mont Saint-Michel’s Bay is located between Granville (Normandie ) to Cancale ( Bretagne ). What a beautiful area !



I will share to you my day trip to the Mont Saint-Michel’s Bay .

And this time , I did Land sailing in the Mont Saint-Michel’s Bay !






You first need to reserve before going ! Book direclty through their website : Avel Char à voile.



9:00 AM 





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.





9:45 AM



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 ☺



13:45 PM



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 ☺
