Pointe du Grouin, Cancale, Brittany, France 

Marking the westernmost tip of the Bay of Mont St-Michel, this brilliantly located headland not only allows you to benefit from sublime views eastwards, but also splendid ones to the west. The island just offshore is off-limits though as it’s the preserve of birds.

The panorama is flabbergasting on a clear day. To the north, far out to sea beyond the Herpin lighthouse, you can make out the Îles Chausey, a scattering of islands off Normandy’s Cotentin coast. A mere 25 kilometres east, the Mont St-Michel is reduced to an intriguing spiritual speck on the horizon. The views tripping westwards along the coast reach towards St-Malo, although the corsairs’ city remains hidden out of sight.
