About Mont Saint Michel, Bayeux

The Mont Saint Michel is perched upon a small rocky island with stout ramparts and battlements surrounding it. Popular for its extreme tides, during high tides the attraction is entirely encompassed by sea while during low tides bare sand surrounds the manor.

Mont Saint Michel Day Trips & Excursions

Mont Saint Michel, Bayeux Reviews

  • This was a great experience. The crowds were pretty brutal but that was the only negative. And we went in High season. The view as you get off the shuttle bus and the view from the top are amazing. Be sure to walk around in the sand at low tide. It’s a great experience. Our daughter had a poster of Mont Saint-Michel on her wall since she was 11. She went with us. Definitely a highlight to a trip to Normandy/ Brittany.

  • Very very impressive. A great day out. Great view and picture perfect location. Lots of restaurants to choose from. Do the tour of the monastery. We took the bus out along causeway and walked back. You only see the weir or flood dam if you walk and it is worth a wee look.

  • Fantastic place to visit. The buildings are absolutely gorgeous and appear untouched and take you back to a different era. The Abby is the absolute highlight and I would recommend allowing plenty of time to really explore this beautiful building. The whole area is visually stunning and my recommendation would be to go during the winter when the crowds are nonexistent. The free shuttle bus is a huge help!

  • Beautiful and interesting place. Best thing to do here is to simply walk up and down, day and night. 2-3 hours is enough. Lots of good photo opportunities. Easy access with the free bus ride from the nearby parking lot. But everything here is unnecessarily expensive. My other complaint is that the Abbey closes ridiculously early in the afternoon

  • A fantastical and majestic castle that is worth the visit. It’s a bit hard to get there, so I’d recommend either car or tour bus. Mont Saint-Michel illuminates at night every day of the year, and I’d highly recommend viewing it if you have the opportunity. The inside of Mont Saint-Michel is just as great as well, especially at the top.
