Thousands have flocked to catch the site of the spectacular island.
The solar eclipse couple with the supermoon resulted in the exceptionally high tide. This high tide sends splashes of water along the English Channel coast across England and France.
This high tide occurred on Saturday. The tide was estimated to be some 14 meters high.
Mont Saint-Michel, is situates one kilometer off the mormandy coast. It was named as the UNESCO World Heritage in 1979.
In every 18 years the mascaret wave bathes Mont Saint Michal’s surrounding wall, and it completely submerged the gothic monastery’s thin causeway, creating a 42 feet deep moat in some places.
The mascret is known as “the tide of the century.”
The last occurrence was on March 10, 1997.
The next is expected to be on March 3, 2033.
