Saint-Malo & the Emerald Coast
Saint-Malo, a historical city
The famous city of Saint-Malo will transport you back through the centuries with its remarkable history of sailors, corsairs and merchants sailing the seven seas.
Over the centuries, renowned personalities such as the corsairs Jacques Cartier, Robert Surcouf and Duguay-Trouin, as well as scientists, writers and politicians - including Broussais, Maupertuis, Chateaubriant and Guy Lachambre - have all contributed to the fame and prestige of this unique city.
Viewed from the top of the city walls, the panorama offered up by the bay of Saint-Malo is truly breath-taking, with its many forts designed by renowned, French military architect, Vauban, and numerous islands sheltering its bay.
Saint-Malo is also very much a modern seaside resort that moves to the rhythms of Europe’s highest tides.
Indulge in water sports on its wide, open beaches or simply enjoy a stroll with loved ones and family by the water's edge.
