Between Saint-Malo & Mont Saint-Michel
The sail, the sea, the animals …
The summer, the Argoat of internal Brittany moves on the coast of Armor and the international cultural events are based in the country of Saint-Malo. The most known is the mythical Sailing Road of the Rum which leaves Cancale every 4 years. The next edition leaves in 2018, but this year, you could browse the 42 km since Cancale up to the Mount by running with the marathon at the end of May. The walkers, the hikers and the cyclists will take their time on the green way which goes along the bay. Cherrueix is mid-term and in the entrance of the “polders” and grassy, famous “salt meadows” of the bay.
But, the big sports attraction in Cherrueix, stays the Sand yachting because here, in the middle of the bay, when the sea withdraws, stays an immense play area for all the sports of sail. The second major element is the wind northwest or of south-wester which pulls windmills for centuries. Cherrueix welcomed the world championship in 2012 !
For other sports of veil which use the wind, it is necessary to go in Cancale (Sailboat, Windsurfing, kayak).
To bathe in the bay, it is necessary to wait for the high tide, otherwise direction the wild beaches of Saint coulomb between Cancale and Saint-Malo in 20 km. Other alternative, the swimming pool dollibule in Dol-de-Bretagne with its water park and its sauna.
To stay in the sea, you can make mini-cruises by boat to go for example on the Cap Fréhel by the sea or go down the Rance until Dinan, have a relaxing time with a Thalasso at the Sea Thermal baths or go to the Grand Aquarium of Saint-Malo.
