Pointe du Grouin Sud, Vains

(40+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
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.

  • This day a big wind, we had a great day, pres-sales to the dikes of the salines of vain, hedges to the tip of the Grouin in the South, a detour to this tip allows you to enjoy a beautiful panorama on the coast, the ocean, and the islets in full nature, surrounded by Normandy cows, views of Mont Saint Michel Tombeleine, the coast battered by the winds.

  • May be quite a distance from the parking lot. Instead of bus to walk at least 30 minutes or squirrel. Walking, walking without a bus I went to Mont Saint-Michel, but we recommend that you want.                                                     Since there are many photo spot.

  • Extremely scenic place with wonderful views, either towards Normandie but also the sea offers plentiful shades of blue. A must for someone travelling along the northern coast - but pretty touristic.
  • Don't miss to visit this castle if you are interested in (literary) history and the life of European nobility in the 18th and early 19th century. It's the home of romanticist writer François-René de Chateaubriand Guided tour in French
  • Fantastic nature reserve at the end of the cape
  • Beautiful
  • Superb panorama.. .rochers with birds that nest... puts emerald green
