Saint-Malo aquarium

Could you imagine being in front of 8 magnificent sharks in a giant wraparound vision tank? Well perhaps not but there is a great tropical fish collection too. You can also take a trip in the submarine Nautibus . There is a bar -restaurant, gift shop and a free car park. A very exciting outing.                              The old town of St Malo is a lovely place to visit with walks, shops and restaurants.

Mont St  Michel, a must for anyone visiting the area. There are organized walks across the bay of Mont St. Michel from Avranches N.B. if you wish to walk in the bay you should only do so on the organized tours (must be booked in advance) The bay has the second fastest tide in the world it comes in at the speed of a galloping horse. There are many other walks starting from local villages, most of which give the opportunity for panoramic views across the bay.
