The Marine Train

Put on the rails in 1997 by Philippe RENARD, a child of the country in love with the Bay and its history, eager to make it discover and love, his little train leads visitors to the heart of the Bay of Mont Saint-Michel and of his wealth. Starting point for a cultural adventure, the Marin Train is located in the village of Cherrueix, a small village of character anchored in the heart of a land where fishing and gardening guide manners since the Middle Ages. An agricultural tractor as locomotive, one or more trailers comfortably arranged and the train guides you to the parks, on the sand tracks carved by the waves and the wind.
The 12-hourly and ever-changing sea gives us a unique perspective on this UNESCO World Heritage Bay.
