Mont Saint Michel is an old abbey on a tidal island. It used to be some distance from the mainland reachable only by a causeway that was under water at high tide. Over the years a lot of changes have been made to the landscape and a lot of silting has occcured, so now it is very close to the land and usually well-connected.
