We took a drive along the causeway while staying in St Jean de Monts. The causeway is accessible 1.5 hours before and after low tide. Lot's of people go to dig for shellfish though parking is not easy due to the rocks along the causeway....More

The Tour de France is starting at the tourist bureau on Noirmoutier near the Gois. One must cross the Gois at least once in their life. To see all the people out kilometers collecting shells is an experience not to be missed.

Pretty much as others have said, a very long causeway covered with ocean during high tide, Well worth taking this way in or out of Noirmoutier if the tides permit.

This was a great experience, but care has to be taken with the planning. It is essential to check the tides as it is a 3 mile journey across the causeway! Many families had parked on the sands & were digging for clams. It was...More

We were on our way to Noirmoutier-en-l'Île France for a visit when our GPS apparently pointed us to take this causeway. Unfortunately, the tide was so high and we have to detour to the bridge. We've taken a moment to view this incredible site before...More

This is always a must to travel across when visiting the area. I cannot believe there are no tolls if it were England l guarantee it would be chargeable. Make sure you check for low tide times before visiting!!!

Obviously check the tide times and be prepared to queue to get across. There is something amazing about driving across a road that only appears at low tide, you queue to get here as there are so many cars, but there are lots of place...More

This exceptional piece of architecture and human imagination is definitely worth experiencing. Along the road, during low tide, people usually collect shells, although there are way better spots for doing so. Be aware of the high tide =)

Great, for the views, and for the feeling to ride on a very special road. Just a few hours before some fishes where swimming in the ocean just at the same place as where you are now! But make sure you arrive at low tide....More
