Stayed here september and it cost 10 euro which included one over night stay
well worth the visit and would recomend a full day to look around.

Been there a couple of times myself Cipro. Unfortunately the tide was out on both occassions. Bus loads of people used to walk on the mud flats. A good laugh watching their antics when stuck in the mud. Good Pictures. All you need to do now is visit St Michael's mount at Marrazion, near Penzance in Cornwall.

Try and coincide your visit for when the tide is on it's way back in. You will see a "wall/wave" or of water as it does so.

"wall/wave" is a slight exaggeration: little bump would be better but I should imagine with the right storm conditions it would be a mighty interesting sight.

This Youtube vid shows it quite well; shame about the people yakking http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8EItOIzLV8&feature=related

I liked watching people having fun or not in the sands, they do offer a guided walk on the sands and it takes about 3 hours.
ps nice to hear from you again hope you are both well

We were there when the tide came in around 6 o'clock, yes it was a small wave but it did come in
quick and there were plenty of warnings about the tide.

Hi Cipro, still shooting that dam gun of yours. I love it. Yeah, we are still around. We spend 7 months of the year on the road, really 4 on the road and 3 months in Oz or Goa. Take care buddy.

Sometimes on a very high tide parts of the car parking area flood... It can also be fun watching people slip over on the mud...

I will say that some of the shops on Mont St Michel are some of the tackiest that I have seen. Best thing was a shop that sold knives and swords trying to sell a "Rambo" type knife to a small 7 year old who was in our party :(

There is also a famous restaurant that specialises in omelettes; from the prices they were charging I can only assume that they use gold plates
