The falaises de Carolles et Champeaux, safeguarded since 2001, present a great biological diversity but also a real landscape interest due to the magnificent panorama they offer over the Baie du Mont-Saint-Michel.
The high cliffs of this granite massif are perhaps the most beautiful belvedere to be found on the bay.
Averaging 60 to 80 meters in height, they are covered with heather, gorse, broom and blackthorn moors that offer, depending on the season, a formidable palette of colors ranging from lemon yellow to crimson pink.
This granitic massif is notched by a valley at the bottom of which flows the Lude, which empties into the sea at the Port du Lude.
These cliffs are renowned for being a mecca for bird migration, and several insects (locusts, grasshoppers, crickets) and reptiles (green lizard, smooth coronet) have made their home here.
The entire Carolles and Champeaux cliffs site extends over 5 km in length. This remarkable natural heritage benefits from a management plan by the Conservatoire du Littoral, which has counted 480 plants, 30 species of orthopteran insects, as well as 348 species of butterfly.
