From this spot, you can shoot the Mont Saint-Michel with an iconic river in the foreground.

Photography Tips

Come here at sunrise or sunset. It is better between autumn and spring because in summer the river has no water. Avoid the dry season.
Walk around the spot to vary your frames, water is everywhere. To shoot the river and the Mont-Saint-Michel, the best focal length seems to be between 17mm and 35mm on APS-C.

Travel Information

You can park your car near the "Auberge de la Baie", and then walk 5 to 10 minutes to reach the spot. Carry your headlamp.

Hi, May is generally a really nice moment to visit this place. Since 2022 we had dry spring seasons and it is difficult to know so far in advance if you will find water. Check the forecast for the 5 to 10 days before your visit.

Great thanks alot for getting back to me!! Just want to know even if its dry will it have that greenary or just a dry grass?
Julien CHIQUET

As far as I know the grass may keep it's green color even without rain, as the soil here remains relatively humid.

Unfortunately, no water today, and the area looks completely dry. It's strange because I was there on October 28, but as the summer and even the last weeks have been exceptionally dry, maybe this could explain what happened (or maybe there is another explanation...). Anyway, thank you for sharing ☺

Thanks for your comment Laurent. As far as I know, the level of the "river" strongly depends of the rain on the last days, whatever the rainfalls of the whole season.

Hi Julien! Gorgeous photos! Will this spot be affected by the high tide? I will be there on October 9th during the super tide at 20:20 and am wondering if I can catch the sunset (19:30) from this spot, or will it be under water? Thank for any advice or knowledge on the topic. :) Cassie

Hi Cassie, I never went there during such high tides. I don't think it will be under water, especially one hour before high tide, but I am not 100% sure. May be someone who has been there can complete the spot description ? By the way, this spot is really nice. Enjoy it !

I love this photo. I am going to visit here next week and was going to shoot some photos. Is this shot with a telephoto to get the compression?
