(Re)discover the landscape and gaze out at the surroundings during the walk across to the town
The project aiming to restore Mont-Saint-Michel's maritime character has given added value to the walk between the mainland and the town. An all-new experience awaits visitors.
A dyke section (1,187 yards long), slightly set off to the East, now leads to a walkway bridge (831 yards). This gives the walkway a renewed maritime feeling, and a ford (131 yards long) leads to the village year-round, except when tidal coefficients are higher than 110 (a few hours a year). The Mount then becomes an island, set in the middle of its original backdrop...
Specially designed paths for pedestrians
Starting from the parking area, several paths can be taken to make the most of the site's landscapes and of an all-new view of Mont-Saint-Michel. It takes about 50 minutes to walk from the shuttle bus stop to Mont-Saint-Michel.
All three paths first lead to the Dam (place du Barrage), before heading on to the new walkway that takes you to the Rock.
- Eastern path: Lisière
- Western path: Couesnon embankment
