Take time to visit this tower just below the steps up to the Abbey at the far end of the Mount. From here there are great views out into the Bay, and you can also start a walk along the walls. Well worth the diversion!

Once you have walked up the hill and steps, you can enjoy the beautiful views. We had a very sunny day, so we could see many kilomteres far. Not to crowded and a nice walk down again.

This was a hike up some stairs but if you don’t like stairs, you probably won’t like le Mont Saint-Michel anyway. The views of the bay and the abbey were awesome. I recommend coming back at night to see the abbey lights. Be careful though,...More

the Tour Du Nord is at the end of the ramps and offers astonishing 360° views around Mont-Saint-Michel... really fabulous!

The top of this tower is a platform, excellent for a great view of the bay and the other surroundings. On a sunny day, the winds chill you down, which can be quite comfortable.

It is one of the many towers on Mont-Saint-Michel; this tower affords great views of the bay and Tombelaine. It is a nice detour on your way up the Grand Degre.

Nice spot to grab some time to reset on a beautiful view. But as others said keep walking along and you’ll find your spot.

From the Tour du Nord you can probably see the most wonderful view of the bay and its cost. From there in few steps you are at the abbey.

The view from Tour du Nord is astounding - you can see for miles and miles (we had a beautiful sunny December day). You can feel moved from centuries of people who have stood in a similar spot to you - it is a breath-taking...More
