Mont Saint-Michel

The famous and touristy Mont St. Michel is certainly worth a visit and a stay in one of the hotels in the village. When you have the time, take a walk on the mud-flats, but don't go too far without guide as the tide comes in with a speed of one 

meter a second. Both times I visited, cars that were parked in the spacious car parks at low-tide, ended up halfway in the water after the tide came in. Stay away from the famous Mère Poulard gallettes (sort of omelettes posing as a soufflé) as they were a disappointment to all of us who ate them.
