Saint-Malo : Michelin's recommendations
Encircled by its strong granite ramparts, this corsair city was destroyed in August 1944, but has been so well restored that its centre exudes an austere yet characterful harmony. A busy port and renowned seaside resort, Saint-Malo offers a relaxing blend of thalassotherapy, sailing clubs and fine sandy beaches. The island of Grand Bé, the Fort national and Sillon beach are all appealing attractions.
