We were on our way to Noirmoutier-en-l'Île France for a visit when our GPS apparently pointed us to take this causeway. Unfortunately, the tide was so high and we have to detour to the bridge. We've taken a moment to view this incredible site before...More

This is always a must to travel across when visiting the area. I cannot believe there are no tolls if it were England l guarantee it would be chargeable. Make sure you check for low tide times before visiting!!!

This exceptional piece of architecture and human imagination is definitely worth experiencing. Along the road, during low tide, people usually collect shells, although there are way better spots for doing so. Be aware of the high tide =)

Amazing experience, this long causeway has that element of danger when you think the tide is on its way back in! A must-do if you are in the area.

Passage du Gois was on my to do list with the family before our holiday to the Vendee. After speaking to our lovely French neighbour Sebastian and his wife @ Sol Agogo campsite, we became even more convinced and adamant that we must experience this...More

We opted for this more interesting route to Noirmoutier and timed it to start crossing exactly 1.5 hours before low tide. The causeway is 4 km long and it is safe to drive during the times recommended. We saw lots of people gathering shellfish to...More

if you like nature at its best then go spend a couple of hours at this causeway. (Not many of these in the world) only 25 minute drive from St Jean Demont. Watch the tide come in/out and drive across to the island or mainland....More
