The Pointe can be explored via a walking trail. In spring, lots of wild flowers abound. Views off to islands create a fantastic landscape. Take a picnic and enjoy the views. Free parking nearby. Bring windbreakers.

A great walk if you’re in the Cancale region, definitely worth to take the time to go. Have a drink to there, the view from the cafe is remarkable.

Come here for some amazing views of the ocean. And surrounding land. Get an idea of how strong and intense the sea is pounding the local land and marvel at the rW power and beauty. Great spot for photos
