The Bay of Mont-Saint-Michel is located between Brittany and the Norman peninsula of Cotentin. It was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979. The very high tidal range in the area (up to 15 metres) allows a large part of the bay to be discovered at low tide. The area is home to a wide variety of birds and sea seals.
