This is a lovely walk along the coastline. It's worth taking an extra layer as the wind can make it cold in the exposed areas. Parking is easy about 15-20 minutes from the 'Point' but you can make the walk as long as you like...More

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.

A great walk if you’re in the Cancale region, definitely worth to take the time to go. Have a drink to there, the view from the cafe is remarkable.

Beautiful views - worth the slight detour. Great photo ops! Incredibly peaceful even though busy. Sandy ocean views.

Come here for some amazing views of the ocean. And surrounding land. Get an idea of how strong and intense the sea is pounding the local land and marvel at the rW power and beauty. Great spot for photos

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

Nice place to visit to get a refreshing view over the ocean. Can be either accessed by foot or by car with various parking lots nearby. You will get a good taste of britanny.
