The tides at Mont Saint Michel
Don't leave the hotel before watching the fascinating spectacle of the highest tide in the world that comes in around Mont Saint Michel bay !
Twice a day the tides around Mont Saint Michel cover the bay completely, transforming the surrounding landscapes. With a 13 m tidal range when the tide coefficient is very high, the sea withdraws at great speed over 15 kilometres before coming back in just as quickly.
This phenomenen favours organic production which is why the bay of Mont Saint Michel boasts such an abundant and varied wildlife.
Not to be missed : the tidal bore which occurs when the tidal coefficient is over 80 which can be observed from polder Tesnières.
