This crazy road in France disappears underwater twice a day

By woman /


Passage du Gois is a road that connects the Gulf of Burnёf with the island of Noirmoutier in France. Due to the rising tide, you can only drive along it twice a day for a few hours before it gets flooded. The rest of the time it’s hidden 13 ft beneath the waves.


We decided to share some photos of this unusual road that poses a challenge to even the most seasoned travellers.





In 1701, the natural passage connecting the mainland to the island of Noirmoutier was first indicated on a map. Around 1840, a regular service began to be provided by car or on horseback. Today, the road is around 2.58 miles long.
