We were on our way to Noirmoutier-en-l'Île France for a visit when our GPS apparently pointed us to take this causeway. Unfortunately, the tide was so high and we have to detour to the bridge. We've taken a moment to view this incredible site before...More
This is always a must to travel across when visiting the area.

if you like nature at its best then go spend a couple of hours at this causeway. (Not many of these in the world) only 25 minute drive from St Jean Demont. Watch the tide come in/out and drive across to the island or mainland....More
