Holidays in Saint-Malo
Location and orientation
The first thing you notice about Saint-Malo is its historic old town at the mouth of the river Rance into the Atlantic Ocean. The old town is surrounded on three sides by water and gives the feeling of being on a fortress island. Apropos island: the three offshore islands off Saint-Malo can be easily visited on foot during low tide. But beware, at high tide the level rises by a full 12 meters!
In summer it gets rocky: at the "La Route du Rock" festival young rockers can show what they are made of.
Top 3 travel tips
Behind the historical city wall hides a sight like from Game of Thrones or other epic sagas. Small stone cottages, winding alleys and of course countless cafés and restaurants with Breton delicacies are just waiting to be explored by you. You want to hear the sound of the waves? Then you can walk directly through the city wall down to the water and treat yourself to a break from the hustle and bustle of the old town.2. one day at the beach
Brittany is known for its unique weather, but in summer you can enjoy hours of sunshine and wonderful temperatures here. What would be better than to plan a day at one of the sandy beaches of Saint-Malo? Particularly beautiful is the Plage de Bon-Secour, a seawater outdoor pool with numerous water sports possibilities. His peculiarity? The children's club, where your little ones are in good hands while you relax on the beach. But the Plage du Mole below the fortress wall is also popular - after all, almost no breeze can reach you here and the water is calm - perfect for splashing around with small children.3. a trip to Jersey
Although geographically much closer to France than to England, the island of Jersey is part of the Kingdom. There are several ferries a day to the picturesque island, where you can shop, enjoy typical British snacks or just enjoy the unique atmosphere of the island. And if you want to spend the night in Jersey, you will also find a vacation rental or apartment here.
