We are spoilt for choices for beaches in the area as we are located between Normandy and Brittany. The best beaches are around 50 minutes drive away and in Brittany there are the numerous Emerald Coast beaches between St Malo and Cancale, and 3 beaches in Dinard. In Normandy, north of Mt St Michel there are the huge sandy beaches of Carolles and Julouville. Strand beaches are closer, around the Baie de Mont St Michel, such as Cherrueix where land yachting is done, nice for walking and collecting shells, especially if you have dogs, but the sea is a long way off. Guided walks across the bay of Mont St Michel are also possible, but need to be booked in advance.
