From Saint-Malo to Saint-Coulomb
A nightmare of stone, Rhoténeuf, last quarter of St-Malo on the coastal road to Cancale, this strange fresco carved in the cliff is the work of the Abbot Fouré. At the end of the 19th century, he spent twenty years drawing the legend of Rothéneuf. On more than 500 m², facing the sea, about 300 characters are frozen in stone since 1890.
Only a few kilometers from Saint-Malo and the hustle and bustle of its famous Sillon, lies the island Besnard, whose high cliffs stand at the entrance of Le Havre de Rothéneuf. This island is actually a peninsula connected to the coast by a sand tongue called tombolo: it is one of the protected dunes that border the huge beach of the chevrets.
Not far from Saint-Malo and Cancale, the tip of the Meinga will delight the stroller in search of tranquility and magnificent coastal landscapes, with its beautiful beaches and rocky capes. The island of Guesclin, accessible at low tide, the Guesclin cove is one of the exceptional sites of this coastline known for its huge sandy beaches, dunes and rocky peaks.
