Photography & Words | Tereza Lee Photography
2. People watching at Place du Chateaubriand – make sure you find yourself a comfortable seat in one of the many street cafes/restaurants, order Brittany’s cider or Kir Royal and enjoy the hustle and bustle of the busy square. If you are feeling a little bit peckish be sure to order yourself some ‘moules frites’ (mussels and skinny fries) which is a local specialty.
3. Food experience – St Malo is definitely for the foodies – in addition to the ‘moules frites’, you should treat yourself to a relaxed, candlelit dinner in one of the restaurants. The variety of foods to choose from is literally endless, but you might want to take advantage of the location and sample a selection of the local ‘Fruit de Mere’ – especially the oysters from the nearby village Cancalle which are a local delicacy.
4. Exploring – you will love exploring the winding cobbled streets and discovering hidden gems whilst munching on Crepe/Gallet or the fabulous Macaroons. Be sure to pop your head in the majestic and lovely cathedral in the middle of the city.
5. Night life – don’t miss experiencing the atmosphere of the town during evening, browse through the streets whilst you enjoy a glass of your favourite wine alongside the locals in one of the many bars – they each have a different character and having a look into few of them will not leave you disappointed.
6. Beaches & aquarium – if you fancy a little break from the people why not dip your toe in the sea on the local beach or head over to the St Malo Aquarium (approximately 10 minute bus drive from the center) which is definitely worth visiting for its vast array of species (yes including sharks) and many fabulous activities such as submarine experience.
