Tourism in Saint Malo
Spending your holidays in Saint-Malo means discovering Brittany from one of its most emblematic cities. Saint-Malo castle and St. Vincent cathedral, its gates and posterns: while strolling through the alleyways or along the ramparts, you will travel back in time, thanks to the numerous monuments bearing witness to the history of this corsair city. History lovers will be delighted!
The walled city, besides its architectural gems, is also a perfect place to stroll and lose yourself in the alleyways full of shops and cafés. Having a drink around the Chateaubriand square, shopping in Saint Vincent street, or even sitting down in one of the countless pancake houses of the city to taste a Breton buckwheat cake served with a cider bowl, without forgetting the Saint-Malo crackers - a real must try! -, so many activities to spend a laid-back day while enjoying the charms of Saint-Malo.
Sea-lovers can always feel its presence in this wave-lashed harbour. If you like lazing by the sea, you will enjoy the beautiful beaches at the foot of the city, like the famous Sillon beach, known as one of the most beautiful beaches in France. At low tide you can visit the Fort National and the tidal island "Le Petit Bé", the must-see sites of Saint-Malo's history. Lovers of sea wildlife should visit the Grand Aquarium and its 600 marine species. As the tide is low, sometimes exposing several dozen metres of beach, the treasures left by the sea will delight the little ones and on-foot fishermen.
