The high tides at Mont-Saint-Michel will return next week (January 2019). They happen on around 20 days each year with two high tides each days. The high tides mean that Mont-Saint-Michel is cut off from the mainland and it becomes an island.

It’s quite an impressive sight to see particularly if you’re on the island when it gets cut off. Bear in mind you may have to wait an hour or so for the tide to subside. The main entrance takes a while to clear but there is another route off the island.

From Monday 21st to Thursday 24th January 2019 the tide co-efficient will be over 100. That number is the measurement of how high the tide will be.
