This one requires a little effort. But the little walk to reach the end of this rocky spur is definitely worth the effort. The view is breathtaking. Between pine trees, gorse and carved rocks, you’ll have an incredible view extending from Cap Fréhel to the Bay of Mont-Saint-Michel.
For wildlife fans, it’s also the opportunity to observe the bird reserve of Ile des Landes, with its cormorants and European herring gulls. If we refer to the “Atlas des places fortes de 1784”, we discover that Pointe du Grouin is so called because its rocky headland looks like the profile of a pig’s snout, “groin” in French.
