What to do around this youth hostel in Genêts in the Mont Saint Michel Bay? >

Discover the Mont-Saint-Michel

To visit the Wonder, plan your trip ideally in the off-season and think of coming early in the morning. The Mont-Saint-Michel is accessible on foot or by bicycle via a bridge. If you wish, shuttles included in the price of the parking lot will take you there from the parking lot.

Remember to get information before choosing your day of visit. During the high tides, when the coefficient exceeds 100, the Mont becomes an island again and is not accessible.

Don't miss to stroll in the small streets and to visit the Abbey which dominates the Mount to enjoy the magnificent view on the whole bay.

Enjoy the bay of Mont-Saint-Michel

Explore the many riches of the Bay of Mont Saint Michel during your stay in Genêts:

  • The beautiful viewpoints on the Wonder: accessible without going too far from the youth hostel. Visit the Bec d'Andaine, the Pointe du Grouin du Sud or directly in the village of Genêts ;
  • The crossing of the bay of Mont-Saint-Michel : on foot or on horseback with a guide. Do not venture into the bay alone, you might be surprised by the tide or the fog. Leave for example from the Bec d'Andaine for a 4 hours walk off the beaten track, to discover the fauna, the flora and the history of the bay, while enjoying the beautiful landscapes and the view of the Mont-Saint-Michel in the distance;
  • Go for a hike on the coastal path: The youth hostel is a choice stopover on the GR 223, which connects Carentan to the Mont-Saint-Michel. Day hikes around this itinerary will allow you to enjoy beautiful landscapes;
  • Explore the bay by bike: The Véloscénie bike route, which connects Paris to Mont-Saint-Michel, and the Vélomaritime bike route, which follows the coastline, promise you beautiful escapades.
