Planning a trip to France anytime soon? Do you know you have to be careful with the roads you are going to take. As they might just go away.
Passage du Gois is a passage that connects the Gulf of Burnёf with the island of Noirmoutier in France. The passage is special, but also extremely dangerous .Twice a day for a few hours, because of the high tide, the 2.58 mile long road disappears 13 ft beneath the water, making it completely seen no where.
This natural pathway which connects the mainland to the island of Noirmoutier was mentioned over the map in the year 1701. During 1840 one can pass by only through car or on horseback.
The road looks beautiful, but is extremely dangerous. On its both sides, there are special panels which will indicate you whether the road is passable or not as every year number of travelers get trapped over it because of the rising water tide. There are elevated towers located all along that passage to rescue yourself if caught between the tides.
