the world's most spectacular roads

Passage de Gois is a natural passage with a length of 4,3km (2.58-miles), located in the Atlantic coast of France in the Vendée department. This stretch of the D948 road is periodically flooded leading to the island of Noirmoutier in France. It is flooded twice a day by the high tide. 

Passage de Gois (also known as Gôa) is located between Île de Noirmoutier and Beauvoir-sur-Mer, in the department of Vendée, and it’s one of the routes that connects the island to the mainland. The Passage du Gois is an extraordinary location in France and a national monument. The 4,150 meters long causeway is only accessible with the low tide and then only 1 ½ hour before the lowest tide and 1 ½ hour afterwards.

This uneven stone paved causeway was first used during the XVI century as the Baie de Bourgneuf gradually silted up. Today the causeway attracts thousands of visitors a year to watch the twice daily uncovering of the 4.3 kilometres of road as it miraculously appears from the sea during the ebbing tide. 


When this paved sandbar that’s flooded twice a day at high tide isn’t submerged, this narrow causeway—flanked by fishing boats and littered with errant clumps of seaweed—is a slippery stretch indeed and especially treacherous on two wheels. This road has been used several times on Tour de France. This causeway is so unique, that you cannot encounter it anywhere else in the world.  The 4,150 meters long causeway is only accessible with the low tide and then only 1 ½ hour before the lowest tide and 1 ½ hour afterwards. The Passage du Gois is an extraordinary location in France and a national monument.

I'm truly enjoying the design and layout of your website. It's a
very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here
and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer
to create your theme? Great work!

Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment (it was
super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your
blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to the whole thing.
Do you have any tips and hints for first-time blog writers?
I'd really appreciate it.
