ST-MALO : BE INSPIRED

What to do, to see, to hear...

Transports in Saint-Malo

WHEN TO GO TO SAINT-MALO ?

Summer is the most popular time to visit Saint-Malo when its population can swell by around 200,000 people. Beer lovers should head to the city in early autumn when an annual version of Oktoberfest is staged. If sailing is your thing, then early November may be better as racing vessels return to the port having traversed the Atlantic. As well as a Christmas market in December, a World Folklore Festival is put on in July.

WHAT TO DO IN SAINT-MALO ?

Saint-Malo is no backwater and has plenty of activities to offer visitors. Our hotelier listed some top attractions and things to do that you should not miss out.

DANS LE SILLAGE DES CORSAIRES

Ils sont encore là sur leurs piédestaux disséminés dans la ville : Jacques Cartier, Mahé de la Bourdonnais, René Duguay-Trouin, Robert Surcouf… Eux, comme des milliers de corsaires ont fait la réputation de la ville. Certains ont bâti des fortunes à l’image d’Auguste Magon de la Lande, armateur et corsaire sous Louis XV, dont on peut aujourd’hui visiter la magnifique demeure malouine. N’hésitez pas non plus à monter à bord de l’Étoile du Roy, incroyable frégate corsaire, pour un voyage unique dans le temps.

A LA PLAGE ! 

Une petite baignade, ça vous tente ? Comment ça, l’eau est froide ! (Très) fraiche, tout au plus… D’accord, mais à défaut de piquer une tête, offrez-vous de belles balades sur les plages. Celle du Sillon, la plus grande avec ses 3 km, est surtout connue pour ses brise-lames, ces troncs de chêne se dressant à la verticale, érodés par des décennies de houle et de marée. D’autres plages, plus petites mais tout aussi charmantes, se situent au pied des remparts, celle du Môle et celle de Bon Secours.

LE GRAND AQUARIUM

Pour ceux qui aiment la mer mais n’ont pas envie de se mouiller, c’est l’endroit parfait ! Installé aux portes de la ville, le Grand Aquarium permet de découvrir plus de 600 espèces aquatiques. On peut même en caresser certaines ! Celles des côtes bretonnes… pas les requins que l’on se contente d’admirer à travers une vitre à 360 °C. Ne manquez pas l’Abyssal. Descender pour une plongée inoubliable dans les abysses, ni le Nautibus pour une immersion totale dans les profondeurs et un inoubliable voyage.

CYCLING

Saint-Malo is geared up for cyclists and many visitors explore the Brittany countryside having hired a bicycle locally. There are plenty of outlets and cycle shops in the city.  
 

FISHING

Sea fishing is another exciting activity that many try their hand at from Saint-Malo's harbour. Hiring a vessel for the day means everything you'll need is included.  
 

BY NIGHT

The city has a vibrant nightlife with plenty to keep you occupied into the wee small hours. Try your hand at Le Casino Barrière or how about L’Escalier, a trendy nightclub just outside of the city limits?

The best restaurants in Saint-Malo

Although crepes and galettes are local favourites, you can find some refined gastronomy in Saint-Malo, especially restaurants which specialise in seafood. Restaurant Le Cap Horn overlooks the city's fine sandy beach and provides a fine dining experience with a good selection of wines from its cellar, for example.
