SAINT MALO Le Petit Be

Petit Be is a tidal island near Saint-Malo, France, close to the larger island of Grand Bé. At low tide the island can be reached on foot from the nearby Bon-Secours beach.

On Petit Bé is a fort built in the 17th century. It was part of the defense belt designed by Vauban to protect the city of Saint-Malo from British and Dutch fleets. This belt also included the Fort National, the Fort Harbour, the Fort de La Conchée, thes forts of Cézembre and Pointe de la Varde (these last two have been destroyed) and the wall of the city. The forts were built by the Saint-Malo engineer Siméon Garangeau.
