At first glance the imposing walled city of Saint Malo can appear somewhat forbidding but pass through the walls, into the streets beyond and it becomes instantly obvious why it is the most visited city in Brittany. A bustling vibrant place, it is filled with restaurants, bars and shops. Climb atop the ramparts and enjoy a bird’s eye view of the busy streets below and the lovely beaches beyond the walls. The Port area is famous for its oyster beds and is where you’ll find most of the up-market hotels. The marina has moorings for 200 vessels and has an eco friendly policy that has won it many awards. There are adequate marine services and it is possibly the best place from which to explore one of the most fascinating citadels in Europe.

The beaches are also pristine and, it has to be said, impressively vast, yet for all their beauty most visitors visit Saint Malo for the wining, dining and nightlife. The city actually has more restaurants than hotels. The long crescent within the ramparts between Porte St. Vincent and the Grande Porte is literally crammed with fantastic places to eat out and drink.

Saint Malo is one of the few cities that travellers are more than happy to stay in after a ferry journey. The atmosphere is always fresh and exciting. A journey back in time that drags you laughing and singing into the 21st century, Saint Malo is one of life’s most rewarding enigmas. If you visit Brittany just once in your life be sure to make it Saint Malo.

Beryl and Jim
we will be sailing the Channel Islands this year and will be visiting Cherbourg and St Malo. We have noticed that the Channel Islands are very well represented on this site and we find it very useful. Will you be covering Cherbourg and St Malo with the same amount of information?

Went over to Saint Malo on Saturday on the Jersey Condor Ferry, had the best weather possible and ate at Chateaubriand Hotel and restaurant-10/10.
Overall cost €280 ÷8 = €35 per head roughly, not bad.
We reserved an outside table as soon as we arrived, recommended.
Bon Appetite.
