I walked from Saint Malo to La Plage Rochebonne twice during my stay, It's very clean along here, lots of people just walking or watching the sea, several nice places to have a tea or drink

It’s a wonderful beach, and so wide. Never overcrowded, and people are so well-behaved. Enjoyable at any time of day or evening - and beautiful sunsets. Many photo ops!

Dogs are not allowed on Saint-Malo beaches, to keep the beaches as clean as possible.
