Visit the Couesnon flood barrier - Autumn half term 2014

Before visiting the village and abbey on the Mount, the new Couesnon flood barrier is definately worth a visit.

You can enjoy a free, outdoor guided tour on the maritime balcony opposite the Mont Saint Michel and on the flood barrier's bridge-promenade.  Learn all about the Great Resoration Project.


The Couesnon flood barrier not only regulates the waters and pushes the sediment offshore, far from Mont Saint Michel (its main vocation), it is also a work of art and visitor attraction that is part of the new layout leading to the entrance of the Mont Saint Michel.

  • Free visit, prior booking not necessary
  • Length of visit : 45 minutes
  • Dates : Saturdays and Sundays during the autumn half term (meeting point on the flood barrier at 3.30pm)
