To see in the area nearby Saint-Malo

Saint Malo Intra-muros (inside the walls, old city centre)

Walk along the wall that protected the city from invaders.

Visit the old city with its tiny alleyways and stone architecture.

Visit Québec House to learn more about the connection between Saint-Malo and Québec.

Plage du Sillon

Directly next to walled city center. It is a huge beach at low tide that completely disappears at high tide (be careful).


Elegant neighbour of Saint-Malo across the bay with its Belle Époque architecture, accessible by boat taxi


Do not confuse with Dinard. Highly recommended day trip. Really nice, romantic, medieval city. Up the river from Saint-Malo. Take a river boat tour, train or bus to Dinan.


Town with oyster field on the other side of the peninsula. A nice place for lunch and a starting point for a hike.

Hiking along the coast between St. Malo and Cancale

Les Rochers Sculptés de Rothéneuf. Sculptures carved out of the rocky coast by Abbot Fouré at the beginning of the last century.

Île Besnard. Take the bus along the coast, get off at La Guimorais, then walk to the campsite.

La Plage de la Touesse. One more stop on the bus down the coast. Enjoy the beach and hike around the Pointe du Meinga.

After a meal in Cancale, start by walking north, direction Pointe du Grouin, along with oyster fields. Very nice hiking trails along the coast. (take water with you, there are no shops along the way)

To help with your hiking trip:

Mont St. Michel

The most famous site in France, and very deserving. A day trip by car or bus from Saint-Malo. We recommend visiting later in the day, as there are less people and there is a light show in the abbey.

Jersey and Guernsey

A pair of islands off the coast belong to the British Crown but are not part of the UK. A little taste of England (sort of). Accessible by Ferry from the Port of Saint-Malo.
