A village on the edge of a natural haven
The village of Port-Bail-sur-Mer stands on the edge of a natural haven on the Cotentin peninsula. The south side is lined with dunes and the north with wet meadows where pré-salés lambs graze. Over 741 acres (300 ha), the haven follows the tides, and two sandy arrows in the shape of a parrot's beak block its mouth. Port-Bail-sur-Mer has also been listed as part of the paths to Mont-Saint-Michel since 2019. The Chemin des Douaniers (customs path) passes through Port-Bail-sur-Mer, its 12th-century church, and its unique 6th-century baptistery.
