He'll also tell you the history of the abbey, the legends connected with it, and the reclamation works that are currently being carried out. You have a choice of departure points for your expedition across this impressive, evocative landscape. If you're very brave you can walk for 13 km, treading the fine line between land and sea. During the Spring tides it's a simply magical sight.
