An unusual stretch of road is striking in its uniqueness.
The passage du Gua (Passage du Gois) — the road that runs along the bottom of the Gulf of Burnie and linking mainland France to the island of Noirmoutier. Twice a day, after low tide, it becomes a few hours available for movement. The rest of the time the tide floods it to the level of four meters.
Natural transition between the island and the mainland, acting at low tide, was first mentioned on maps in 1701. In 1840 it was built by the major road of cobblestones, which allowed us to move on horseback and on carts.
Now the length of the road is 4.5 kilometers. The way it seems small, but is considered very risky.
