Port of Call: Saint-Malo, An Avid Cruiser Feature Video

One of Northwest France’s most attractive coastal towns, Saint-Malo has something to offer all cruise ship passengers: sublime scenery, bustling bars, trendy restaurants and cafes, cultural attractions, outdoor activities and Brittany’s best beaches.

During my visit, I walked the ancient city wall above and around the town of Saint-Malo; visited Dinard, with its lovely sea promenade and Victorian-era homes; strolled through Dinan, a charming medieval town; dined exquisitely (for lunch, no less) on shellfish in Cancale, known throughout France for its mussels; and stood in awe at the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Mont Saint Michel.

Saint-Malo is situated on the English Channel, in Brittany, on France’s west coast. The port is ideally situated between northern and southern Europe. Read more about Saint-Malo.

  • If you haven’t read it yet, I highly recommend Anthony Doerr’s “All the Light We Cannot See,” for an interesting historical fiction view of Saint-Malo during World War II. Well written, it is best read slowly.
