GENÊTS, the perfect holiday destination!
Nestling between Granville and Avranches, Genêts is the perfect base for exploring the southern part of the Manche department, but above all for visiting one of Normandy's most famous tourist attractions: the one and only Mont-Saint-Michel. But it would be a pity to sum up Genêts and its surrounding area simply in terms of this famous nearby site! The Manche department also boasts a breathtaking coastline, a rich heritage, a wide range of activities and much more. It's up to you to find out how you want to discover it!
Before or after exploring the treasures of Normandy, the backdrop to your stay will be your Sandaya campsite and all the services and facilities it has designed with you in mind: water park, free children's clubs, activities during the daytime and in the evenings, etc. A guaranteed successful bespoke holiday awaits you!

And don’t miss…
Visit GENÊTS with the family
A visit to the Mont-Saint-Michel is something you ought to do at least once in your life, especially with children. Firstly because this incredible UNESCO site bears a close resemblance to an enchanted kingdom, and secondly because it transports young and old alike on a journey through time. It's an amazing way for you to learn and marvel together as a family and everyone loves that!
One activity that is perfect for discovering Mont-Saint-Michel as a family is a swim at the beach! Armed with buckets and spades, your little ones will have fun building the most beautiful sandcastle under the watchful eyes of their parents, while older ones will be able to immerse themselves in the joys of a swim in the cool water! And if the water is still calling you, why not make your way to the campsite's water park!
Visit GENÊTS as a couple
Departing from the Bec d'Andaine, a boat trip across the bay of Mont Saint-Michel with a guide is the perfect activity for lovebirds.

Sports lovers can try their hand at water sports. Stand-up paddleboarding, sailing or kitesurfing, there's something for all tastes and all levels.
