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.

I interviewed Elisabeth Gouzien, who represents Saint-Malo, while at Cruise Shipping Miami during mid-March. I met Elisabeth in Saint-Malo a few years ago and on subsequent trips back since then.

During my visit this past summer, 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.
