The tides in the bay of Mont Saint Michel

When you visit Mont Saint Michel, you can also witness the spectacular show of the highest tide in the world, with a tidal range of 15 metres...  Twice a day the tide covers the largest bay in Europe, a listed UNESCO site, radically transforming the landscape...

 

A unique show that is to be preserved for future generations thanks to the Great Project which aims to restore the maritime character of Mont Saint Michel.
 

When the sea goes out to the edge of the bay...

At low tide a completely different landscape is revealed... spacious salt meadows, expanses of sand and rivers boasting a palette of colours and iridescent reflections.  Then it comes back in « at the speed of a galloping horse »… It is not recommended to cross the bay alone - always travel with an experienced guide.
 

Not to be missed : the tidal bore, a rare phenomenen which takes place when the tidal coefficient is over 90.
