Wonderful sandy beach but beach police on quad bikes roar up and ban dogs. Tide is terrific and water comes in up to the wall.

This is by far the most beautiful, easily accessible public beach I have ever seen. The huge tides are truly remarkable to witness. Today we joined locals in hunting for sea critters in the exceptionally low tide. Very relaxing and not at all crowded.

I walked from Saint Malo to La Plage Rochebonne twice during my stay, It's very clean along here, lots of people just walking or watching the sea, several nice places to have a tea or drink

It’s a wonderful beach, and so wide. Never overcrowded, and people are so well-behaved. Enjoyable at any time of day or evening - and beautiful sunsets. Many photo ops!

What is lovely about this beach is the triple view: the city coast behind with all the wooden trunks, the Cité Corsaire and the National Fort! All this becomes even more interesting at the golden sunset light, when you can admire even further this wonderful...More

Every day, there are 2 TGV railways going directly from Paris (Montparnasse station) to Saint-Malo station in only 3 hours. Best regards, Bernard D.

Dogs are not allowed on Saint-Malo beaches, to keep the beaches as clean as possible.
