Le Vivier-sur-Mer
There’s so much to look for and appreciate as you cycle along this section – the Couesnon River, the Mont itself, the marshes, polders, historic St. Anne’s chapel, the charming village of Cherrueix, (famous for sand yachting) then the Cherrueix windmills – and then into the famous ‘oyster port’ of Vivier sur Mer.

Itinerary

Leave Mont St. Michel via the bridge of Beauvoir where
you cross the Couesnon.  The route between the bridge of Beauvoir and the greenway at the St. Anne embankment is very safe.  From here, follow the greenway along 11 kms of the St. Anne dyke to the commune of Cherrueix (sandy surface).  From Cherrueix to Vivier sur Mer, where there is no signposting, follow the coastal road RD 797. Take care at the dangerous crossroads on the west exit of Cherrueix (poor visibility).  Go in the opposite direction if you wish to visit the centre of Cherrueix.
