#54 of 172 in Things to do in Manche
The rocky finger of the Pointe du Grouin points out and protects the entrance into the bay of Mont Saint-Michel.On this headland, a Grande Randonnée footpath runs around hugging the cliff face and there is a circular walk starting out from Cancale.On their way the walker can enjoy views of the Île des Landes a long barren outcrop (now a bird sanctuary), the lighthouse, the Îles Chausey, Granville on the Normandy coast, and, on a clear day, the outline of Mont Saint-Michel.

    We went there 2 times. By late afternoon to 18 h - 19 h. A great view of Mount can also wander around the tip at the level of the sea. There are a few glasswort growing, it's nice and quiet. The mount is a bit far and the orientation of the Sun made that is not obvious to take pictures. Prefer the morning. At sunset: beautiful! Sunset with mount which cuts out in black then that lights, changing colors, the flight as a few groups of birds, the calm sea... It's the postcard and we're in the Middle! If you're in the area, it's not to be missed out of the restaurant.
