Got a few hours to spare?

If you have a few hours to spare before your sailing, then why not check out some of the great attractions in St Malo? 

Intra-Muros

Walk: 10 mins (650m)

Drive: 3 mins (1km)

Intra Muros is the ancient walled town of St Malo and dates from medieval times. Go for a walk along the 2km of magnificent ramparts that afford spectacular views across both the town and harbour, including the islands of Grand Bé and Petit Bé just out at sea.

Within the confines of the walled town itself, wander the narrow cobbled streets and discover boutiques, street-side cafés and restaurants, art galleries, crafts shops and many more traditional and unusual shops where you're sure to pick up some great souvenirs.

Intra-Muros

Beaches and islands

Walk: 15 mins (1.2km)

Drive: 6 mins (1.9km)

St Malo has several wonderful little beaches but the Grande Plage is the largest and easiest to find as it stretches alongside the city walls. Covered in golden sand, it is also the place to set out and explore the islands of Grande Be and Petit Be just out at sea.

At low tide you can walk across the stone flags to Grand Be, home of the tomb of the famous Romantic writer, Francois-René de Chateaubriand. Or go even further out to Petit Be, to discover its 17th century fort and battery. Just watch out for the tide!

Grand Bé and Petit Bé

Tour Solidor

Walk: 16 mins (1.3km)

Drive: 5 mins (1.6km)

Love a bit of seafaring history? Head out of town to the fairytale Tour Solidor. Originally built to guard the River Rance, this tower is now a museum dedicated to the sailors of St Malo and the French explorers who first negotiated Cape Horn.

You'll find lots of models of tall ships and - the best reason to go on a sunny day - if you take the steps to the top of the tower, you'll enjoy panoramic views of the pretty river Rance estuary.
