Getting the right information and discovering the Bay's many riches
Before you arrive, take the time to prepare your visit by stopping off at the Tourist Information Centre, located just before the road heading towards Mont-Saint-Michel. The centre is open daily, from 10am to 6pm.
The centre boasts a 900 m² exhibition area, guiding visitors around three main focus points: the Mount, the bay and its riches, and the territory formed between Normandy and Brittany. Information boards and touch-screens are available to discover all the site's curious features.
You can all the information you need about accessing the town, as well as on the programme for restoring the site's maritime character. Welcome staff are also at your disposal to provide information on the Mount, the Mont-Saint-Michel Bay, places to visit and activities, as well as sights to see around the bay...
