Dinard Saint-Malo

Saint Malo, a unique territory

On the Emerald Coast, which owes its name to the color of its waters, there are magnificent beaches, elegant towns and charming seaside resorts.

Among them, Saint-Malo is a must. The city of sailors and navigators is surrounded by ramparts designed by Vauban at the end of the 17th century. Visit Saint Malo Intra-Muros and admire a magical panorama from the Saint-Vincent gate. From the top of the rampart, you can see from Rochebonne to the town of Dinard and even to the tip of Cap Fréhel. The tides also offer an extraordinary spectacle: it is in the bay of Saint Malo that the highest tides in Europe take place; with a difference that can reach 13 meters!

Walk in the Corsaire City

Stroll along the harbor, visit the Saint-Vincent cathedral and be sure to visit the Grand Bé. At the top is the tomb of Chateaubriand, facing the sea and accessible at low tide only. The writer born in Saint Malo is the forerunner of French romanticism. The Corsair City is home to a rich heritage, from the Saint-Vincent cathedral which dominates the city to the Fort National.

Just like in Dinard, magnificent villas were built in the 19th century along the Saint Malo dike. Do not miss these superb colorful buildings covered with mosaics!

Emerald horizon in the bay of Saint Malo

La Manche, Mor Breizh in Breton, offers a fascinating spectacle in the bay. The landscapes are swept by the tides which punctuate the daily life of Saint-Malo residents. The unspoiled coastline of the Emerald Coast can be explored on foot, by bike or even on horseback. Along the shore, discover long sandy beaches. The invigorating climate encourages swimming!

It is also an opportunity to try your hand at various water activities. Sail aboard an Optimist or catamaran, discover the practice of rowing or try out stand-up paddleboarding.

Every four years in November, Saint Malo hosts the Route du Rhum, a single-handed transatlantic race that links the city to Guadeloupe. A real institution in which Mike Birch, Florence Arthaud Laurent Bourgnon, Loïc Peyron and Francis Joyon took part in particular, who holds the crossing record.
