Alan Rogers Review

Camping le Balcon de la Baie is owned by an enthusiastic young couple. It is close to Mont Saint-Michel, Saint Malo, Dinard and Dinan, and only a two-hour drive from Cherbourg. This quiet little site has just 39 touring pitches set amongst mature trees and well tended shrubs and plants. Some have sea views and many have a 6A electricity connection. There are also mobile homes to rent. An attractive small pool complex offers a main pool (20 m) merging into a paddling pool and a whirlpool. A bistro/crêperie is a short walk from the campsite and there are shops and a restaurant in the nearby village of Saint Broladre. A little further afield are Dol de Bretagne with a wider choice of shops, bars and restaurants, and Cancale (famous for its oysters).

Walkers and cyclists may explore the surrounding countryside and the shoreline of the Baie de Mont Saint-Michel, while the choice of destinations for motorists is impressive. Le Mont Saint-Michel itself is within easy reach and day trips to the historic towns of Dinan and Saint Malo probably top the list. The area has numerous tourist attractions, including theme parks, castles and gardens, museums and children’s farms. The more adventurous might try scuba-diving, land-yachting, climbing, canoeing or riding.
