I have been to this area so many times...it's probably my favorite part of the St Servan area of St Malo. Just a couple of bars and restaurants and lovely views across the bay. The tower itself is well worth a look too !

Loved the location and the layout of the museum. If you like seafaring stuff, this is great. Kids may find this a bit boring - more for adults. Run by volunteers and lots of interesting exhibits
