Easter Sunday

by annase

Bonjour, I'm spending Easter Sunday in Saint Malo and I wonder whether any of the shops, bars, patisseries, cafes and restaurants are open as normal on that day as it is Easter weekend. I'll be arriving in the morning from the ferry and would like to have some breakfast and lunch before being able to check in to my hotel, so I'd like to be sure that there is somewhere that I can go that is open for sure. Thanks for your help in advance.

Hi,
You will have no problem on Easter Sunday in St. Malo. The ferry comes in here at around 8h15 depending on tides. If you are on foot the time you clear customs and walk into town it'll be around 9h00, so you should find some cafés opening then. You could also have b'fast on the ferry or in the ferry terminal(bar opens around 7h30, although you won't get a full English b'fast there.)For lunch, no problem whatsoever, all the restaurants will be open.

Have a good trip

Travel Tips for Saint-Malo

Dog at the pub

by Kate-Me

We just happened to look out our hotel window and spot the scenes below with the dog, who waited patiently for some time to try and get into the restaurant/snack bar. His patience went unrewarded in the end.

Good food too!

by ilovespain about A la duchesse anne

I had half a dozen of oysters to start, fish soup to follow. And for the main course, I had a grilled sole with white butter. The owner seems to be this sweet 80-year-old who speaks no word of English. Overall it was a pleasant dining experience.

St. Vincent's Cathedral

by black_mimi99

When walking around the street within the walls, I heard a church bell, 6 times, so I wonder where is from? and then I found it! The St. Vincent's Cathedral, the cathedral was build from 11th to the 18th century!

The Aquarium

by Goner

South of the citadel is the Grand Aquarium. Take bus number 5 from St Malo station. The Aquarium uses impressively lit tanks full of acquatic life to explain the “Mysteries of the Sea” in a fun and family oriented. You can also ride underwater past a lost city and past wrecks on the “Nautibus. The acquarium costs £9 for entry. It's not a large aquarium, but worth the trip if you have time.

Saint Malo - Gateway to Mont St. Michel

by MikeAtSea

Situated at the mouth of the Rance River, Saint Malo is one of the prime tourist destinations in Brittany. In the 17th and 18th centuries, this Channel port was already of great importance for merchant ships and government-sanctioned pirates, more politely known as privateers.
Saint Malo was the home of the famous explorer, Jacques Cartier, who sailed from here to explore and colonize Canada. Today, visitors flock to Saint Malo to experience the unique “intra-muros” (meaning within the walls) streets of the citadel. Much of the old town’s appearance is due to faithful reconstruction after heavy bombings destroyed Saint Malo in 1944. Only the ramparts withstood the ravages of war and are original for the most part.
Exploration of the old town should include the Saint Vincent Cathedral, noted for its medieval and modern stained-glass windows, and the museum in the Château de Saint Malo. Exhibits illustrate the city’s most prosperous time during its notorious heydays of piracy, colonialism and slave trading. Various staircases allow access to the ramparts, affording great views over the rooftops and the harbour.
About 25 miles south of Saint Malo is the medieval town of Dinan. Once totally surrounded by ramparts, there are still 14 towers left and a good part of the walls encircling beautiful 15th-century timbered houses.
Saint Malo also serves as a gateway for excursions to the legendary Mont Saint Michel, one of France’s most spectacular monuments.
St. Michel is one of the most stunning monuments in France, often called the “Marvel of the Western World.” St. Michel is an hour’s drive away from St. Malo. The monastery was founded in the 10th century as the result of a dream vision. Three centuries later, the Abbey was added. From its very top gleams the gilded statue of Saint Michael. On my visit we visited the various aspects of the abbey. Numerous rooms and chapels all used by monks in ancient times can today be explored. The views across the Atlantic from the top of the abbey are quiet spectacular.

CUISINE
Saint Malo boasts numerous good restaurants, especially along the ramparts. Some of the region’s typical meals include crêpes served in traditional crêperies. Fresh seafood is also a good choice. Since this is such a popular tourist destination, prices are generally high.
OTHER SIGHTS
Explore the streets of the old town and get a city overview from atop the ramparts. Access to the ramparts is available from Porte de Dinan, the Grande Porte and Porte Saint Vincent.
Musée de la Ville
Located next to the Porte Saint Vincent, the museum specializes in the history of the city and the area around Saint Malo.
Cathédrale Saint Vincent
Begun in the 11th century, the church is noted for its medieval and modern stained-glass windows.
Aquarium
The town’s latest attraction is one of the largest aquariums in Europe. Its location is approximately 15 minutes by car from Saint Malo.
