Saint-Malo

Travel guide - Saint-Malo

Beside the English Channel, at the mouth of the Rance basin, Saint-Malo is one of the most popular seaside resorts in Brittany. Buffeted by strong sea breezes, this is an ideal place for sailing.
The history of Saint-Malo is deeply rooted in the sea and its harbour. Your visit to Saint-Malo should start with the emblematic ramparts and fortifications which made Saint-Malo an impenetrable fortress.
The whole family will enjoy the wide sandy beaches around Saint-Malo. Be careful of the strong tides, however. Children will love visiting the Great Aquarium in Saint-Malo, and will be awestruck by the beauty of the marine life forms.
On your visit to Saint-Malo, you will learn about the town's cultural heritage. The History Museum of Saint-Malo, labelled a “museum of France", invites to you to discover its permanent collections. Next, pay a visit to the tomb of French romantic writer Châteaubriand.

Like every town in Brittany, Saint-Malo is proud of its Breton identity which you can learn more about at the traditional Gallèseries festival. Saint-Malo also embraces world music, particularly during the World Folklore Festival and the Route du Rock festival which takes place in summer and in winter.
The Quai des Bulles festival presents the best of European comic books.
The Wine and Gastronomy Fair in Saint-Malo will lead you to discover the secrets of how salted butter and yoghurt is made in Saint-Malo. Whether you love to sail or just like to paddle in the shallows, Saint-Malo is above all a place for all those who love the sea.
