Sport, leisure and relaxation


Lots of facilities for visitors are managed by the City of Saint-Malo authorities:

  • Ramps to public toilets and the beach
  • Parking
  • "Seahorse" wheelchairs for people with disabilities to enjoy both the beach and the sea.

Seahorses have over the years become the symbol of accessibility on the beaches of Saint-Malo. They allow persons using wheelchairs to get about easily on the sand and enjoy all the pleasures of swimming in the sea.


Seahorse chairs are available along the entire eight kilometre stretch of beaches, at the following 8 stations:

  1. Plage des Bas-Sablons (1 chair)
  2. Plage de Bon-Secours (1 chair + 1 chair at the SNBSM sailing school)

  5. Plage de la Hoguette (1 chair+ 1 chair at the Surf School)
  6. Plage de Rochebonne (1 chair)
