Plage du Môle - St Malo

Plage du Mole is the southernmost of St Malo’s beaches. The name comes from the french word for breakwater (not the small furry animal) and the beach sits in the shelter of the Mole des Noires jetty which protects the entrance to the main harbour behind. There are good views across the bay towards Dinard less than 1 km away.

This small sandy beach is seperated from neighbouring Plage de Bon Secours to the north by a rocky outcrop and the imposing walls of the Bastion de la Hollande. With the city walls and buildings of the old town rising high behind the beach this is generally a fairly sheltered spot.

In the summer there is a lifeguard service here and given its location it gets pretty busy.
