Experience the Pointe du Grouin
The Pointe du Grouin stretches majestically out to sea between Cancale and Saint-Malo. You can either walk there, from Cancale, along the 4 or so miles of footpath meandering between gorseland and pines, overlooking sheltered coves by the sea. The reward on reaching the tip will only feel all the more magical!
Or you can drive to the dedicated car park then continue on foot along the track that runs through scrubland towards the rocky coastline and cliffs with the waves crashing around them.

From the tip, a glorious vista opens up before you, from Cap Fréhel all the way to Granville, taking in Mont Saint-Michel bay along the way. The mount of Mont Saint-Michel looms 15 miles away, while the Chausey islands can be made out in the distance. If you’re lucky, you might just spot a pod of dolphins that are regular patrons of these fish-rich waters. At low tide (so check the tide times!), you can head down along a path to explore a cave hollowed out in the cliff. On clear, mist-free evenings, the coastline lights up in the beautiful dusk glow.
