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.

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

Take the little detour from the main steps to see over the bay. From here you get a good view up to the Abbaye and it is less crowded. You can then decide to climb higher or return via the ramparts

Make your personal souvenir: write or draw something in the sand and walk on the top of this tower to take a picture. If not just watch the tide, the view is very nice.

We came here on our way to see the tide rise in the morning, and it was just a beautiful place to take it all in. Looking up at the Abbey, medieval streets and seagulls flying around. Very cool fortification architecture.

I was lucky to catch Mont Saint-Michel on a sunny gorgeous day. The view from the north tower just goes on and on, out over the water or the mud flats, depending on the tide.
