School trip to St. Malo & Brittany
Old pirate town
on the Emerald Coast

The school trip to the wildly romantic Emerald Coast of Brittany offers swimming and fun active water sports by the sea. The beach of Saint-Malo has many activities available such as kayaking and a range of small bays with shimmering turquoise water suitable for bathing and relaxing. The old town, surrounded by the impressive historic city wall, is particularly beautiful due to the small winding streets and stone houses with typical French cafés and delicious specialities. A guided tour through the old pirate town is highly recommended due to its interesting history and the forts which are only accessible on foot at low tide or by boat at high tide, such as Fort du Petit Bé.

We recommend a school trip to St. Malo for students aged 14 and older.

Geology Tip
Tides from two perspectives
Saint-Malo is located in the bay at Mont Saint-Michel which boasts one of Europe’s biggest tidal ranges, with a height difference of 14 metres. The dikes at Sillon and Rochebonne offer the best view of the wild tidal sea. At low tide, the sea reveals its treasures; tide fishermen then have an hour to fill their buckets with crabs, prawns and mussels. For another view of the tides, visit the nearby La Rance tidal power station, a unique energy generation project. Guided tours for both are recommended.
