Work has already begun, so vehicle access directly to Mont Saint-Michel–including bicycles– isn’t possible anymore. But the new dam is built, so visitors willing to park there and shuttle in will be able see Mont-Saint-Michel in a whole new light right away!
One enormous advantage of parking by the new dam is that it offers amazing views of Mont-Saint-Michel from approximately 900 meters away. The distance is post card and photo-perfect. Be sure to spend some time looking for the best “photo op” while you’re there.
