This is one of those experiences that is derived from the intersection of the forces of nature with a man-made artifact. Interesting 3km road from mainland France to Noirmoutier island that is only open 3hrs a day during low tide.... It was an interesting (and...More

We decided to take this route to the Isle de Noimoutier to compare it with our similar local causeway across to St. Michael's Mount - but what a difference. Probably should have gone earlier in the morning as nearing midday there was a slow crawl...More

We nearly didn’t get to see this for the tides but very glad we did. Extraordinary to see at high tide and then drive over it at low tide. Very interesting indeed

The Tour de France is starting at the tourist bureau on Noirmoutier near the Gois. One must cross the Gois at least once in their life. To see all the people out kilometers collecting shells is an experience not to be missed.

Pretty much as others have said, a very long causeway covered with ocean during high tide, Well worth taking this way in or out of Noirmoutier if the tides permit.

This was a great experience, but care has to be taken with the planning. It is essential to check the tides as it is a 3 mile journey across the causeway! Many families had parked on the sands & were digging for clams. It was...More
