#39 of 60 in Sightseeing in Manche
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • Lovely place but very crowded
  • 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
  • Beautiful nature spot
  • Awesome view
