Saint Malo

Saint Malo, an authentic pirate city, is also a fortress city which has never been conquered. Home to the famous pirate Robert Surcouf, Saint Malo remains synonymous with adventure, sea travels, pirates and yachting.
Saint Malo also hosts some of France's biggest maritime events such as the Route du Rhum and the Transat Québec/ Saint-Malo.
The tides in the Bay of Saint Malo are some of the most impressive in all of Europe, capturing the interest of many visitors.
Lovers of the ocean will be enchanted, dreaming of sailing here and far away. Check out the beautiful beaches of Saint Malo as well, where long walks at sunset are magical and the brisk sea air a delight for all.
And then there is the islet of Grand Bé, where you may pay your respects to the great French writer Chateaubriand, a native of Saint Malo. Other not-to-be-missed sights: the national Fort, the Etoile du Roy (a pirate frigate), the well-known ramparts and the Aquarium.
