Too many people and noise. They set up a pretty nice transport system from the parking lots and bus stop. Or you can walk. The hotels are not far from the island. But what a mess.... Find a quiet coastal town.

You have to walk through it - following bag check by police. It leads you to another Porte (gate) to head up to the Abbey.

The main portway into Mont St Michel is very impressive and it is nice that the organisers have made sure no cars park in front to mar the first sights. Although out of season the buses were already full and the entryway crowded as people...More

Impressive and monumental entrance on the tiny rocky fortified island of Mont Saint-Michel. A perfect beginning of the visit.

Beautiful door serve as a entry to mont saint Michel proper. I'm not quite sure, but it looks like typical medieval construction, very picturesque.

Great start to a great visit. The entrance was good before the Main Street of shops took over. There was security at the gate which is good but sad it has to be there.
