This exceptional piece of architecture and human imagination is definitely worth experiencing. Along the road, during low tide, people usually collect shells, although there are way better spots for doing so. Be aware of the high tide =)

Great, for the views, and for the feeling to ride on a very special road. Just a few hours before some fishes where swimming in the ocean just at the same place as where you are now! But make sure you arrive at low tide....More

Amazing experience, this long causeway has that element of danger when you think the tide is on its way back in! A must-do if you are in the area.

if you like nature at its best then go spend a couple of hours at this causeway. (Not many of these in the world) only 25 minute drive from St Jean Demont. Watch the tide come in/out and drive across to the island or mainland....More

Excellent food. Well worth the drive. Try to time your visit with the tide. Can be difficult to find parking at low tide. Service can be slow but if your familiar with France it's normal. Recommend booking in advance.

Seawater and your car dont mix! But the views and the road were worth it. Very tidal and your timings need to be right. Islad itself does have some nice beaches, very quiet too.
