The rocky headlands at the Pointe du Grouin with Granville beyond

The rocky finger of the Pointe du Grouin points out and protects the entrance into the bay of Mont Saint-Michel.

On this headland, a Grande Randonnée footpath runs around hugging the cliff face and there is a circular walk starting out from Cancale.

On their way the walker can enjoy views of the Île des Landes a long barren outcrop (now a bird sanctuary), the lighthouse, the Îles Chausey, Granville on the Normandy coast, and, on a clear day, the outline of Mont Saint-Michel.
