An easy hike in Normandy to discover the lovely city of Saint-Vaast-la-Hougue.
Saint-Vaast-la-Hougue is a city located on the Normandy coast at 30 km from Cherbourg. Saint-Vaast is known for Tatihou island located just in front of the port and the fort of Vauban.
You can go on to Tatihou island by boat - attention must be reserved in advance at the tourist office - or on foot. If you choose the passage on foot remember to check tide times as the crossing lasts half an hour can be done at low tide with a coefficient of tide higher than 60.
The other attraction of the town is the Tower of the district located a few minutes walk from the port of Saint-Vaast.
