Nature and human engineering have always created marvels.
And one such marvel is the ‘Passage Du Gois’. This magical road connects Île de Noirmoutier and Beauvoir-sur-Mer in France.
The 4.12 km long road is visible only twice a day. The high tide floods the road and makes it unfit for use.
Founded in 1577, it has been in constant use since 1840. In 1999, it was also used for Tour De France’s race during Stage 2 and in 2011 as the starting point of the first stage.
As easy as it may appear, this, in fact, is one of the most dangerous roads in the world. Every day several ‘adventurous’ people try to cross the road during high tide and get stranded in the way. The road is lined with rescue towers on which one can climb to save himself from getting 13 feet under water during high tide.
The government allows vehicles to cross only during the low tides and one and a half hours before the low tide and one and a half hours after the low tide.
