Mont Saint Michel is a monastery built on a rock island around 1 kilometer off the nothern coast of France. The island is itself just less than 1 kilometer in diameter. Nowadays there is a causeway which connects the island to the mainland. There are plans to replace this with a bridge and a bus service. This development is mainly welcomed by the local community. The Mont is the second most popular tourist attraction in France.
