The Pointe can be explored via a walking trail. In spring, lots of wild flowers abound. Views off to islands create a fantastic landscape. Take a picnic and enjoy the views. Free parking nearby. Bring windbreakers.

Exploring the coast between St. Malo and Cancale during the "off-season", we stopped here for the view, which is quite impressive. The hike out the point was not difficult and offered many opportunities for interesting pictures. Even in the off-season this spot was fairly crowded,...More
