Who has never heard of the great tides of Saint-Malo?
More than a show, the tides give rhythm to the daily life of the Malouins. Here, the sea offers you at every moment a different landscape, swept twice a day by the comings and goings of the tide.During the full moon or the new moon, the attraction is at its peak. The tidal coefficients usually exceed 100. Every six months, near each equinox (March-April and September-October), the tides are even stronger. These are the famous equinox tides so much awaited by the fishermen on foot, because the sea withdraws particularly far. But they are also very much feared by the residents of the seaside because the risks of flooding at the time of the high tide are frequent.
