Taking a walk there during the low tide and enjoy peace & quiet, maybe a picnic? You will have a great view at the city from the seaside and the sound of the ocean in the back. One of the best picnics I"ve ever head!

The fort is really the must-see at St-Malo because it offers a spectacular view on the immense sea, blue and clear, under the sun it's simply breathtaking!

Meglio che vi informiate prima all'ufficio del turismo. Il forte è privato, da cui gli orari possono cambiare.
