Overall rating:
Saint-Malo is a very touristy, but beautiful and a lovely place. We stayed here two nights in the hotel ibis Saint Malo Plage (booking.com). Consider problems with parking during summer season and book hotel only with parking lot.

There is an old city, surrounded by high walls. However, it is restored, as it was destroyed by the Allies.

Usually old town is overcrowded. It is not particularly interesting, better take a walk around the walls.

Due to the constant tides the city is protected by a high pier and wooden poles.

But storms happen. The Internet is full of videos from stormy Saint-Malo

During the day take a walk on the walls of the old city.

Saint-Malo is a lot of kilometers of beaches. During low tide the beaches are just endless.

Video of 3-hour tide from that point. Next photo shows the island with a tomb of Chateaubriand. Be careful and do not to stay on the island or in a fort before high tide.

On the way from Dinan we have stopped at park De la Briantais. Silent place without tourists.

Another beautiful place is a fort near the Solidor Tower, but we did not visit.

In the evening Saint-Malo is beautiful from any point due to the walls, which become yellow.
