This walk takes you to the heights of the Balcon de la Baie and offers stunning views of the bay and Mont-Saint-Michel. The richness of this circuit is linked to the variations of landscapes, colours and contrasts. From the balcony of the bay, successive enchanting panoramas of the bay are revealed during the walk. The rural stage at Pas Gérault pond will also please the whole family.
