Definetly one of the more beautiful locations in France. Often visited by tourists. If you visit the island itself you will be overcrowded by tourists. But if you take the GR22 and the GR34 walking paths wich are basically just very old clay paths you will have a spectacular view of the bay, the salt marshes and the island with on top the abbey, and will not be bothered by loads of people, because those roads are pretty deserted. Somehow most tourists prefer the brand new asfalt roads instead of the clay/muddy ancient roads.
We parked our car here:
614 Rue du Rivage
50170 Huisnes-sur-Mer
The tides vary the most of the whole world. The difference between high tide and low tide can be more than 16 metres. Be sure to check both weather and tides before you go and explore. Be careful to stay on the path, because the salt marshes can be really soggy and dangerous when the tide comes up. Go east about 30km from the Mont for a sunset photo, go west about 30km for a proper sunrise photo.
