Abstract In some circumstances, the tidal range may be reach several metres when the boundary shape favours the enhancement of the tide and there is a resonance of the basin with the tide. Large tides (macro-tides) occur in the Bay of Fundy (Canada), and in the Baie du Mont-Saint-Michel (France) in the English Channel, called La Manche in French. A lesser known site is the Baie de Saint-Brieux, 80 km West of the Mont Saint-Michel and about 40 km from the Rance tidal power plant. In the Baie de Saint-Brieux, the tidal range may exceed 11 m and the coastline consists predominantly of sandy beaches separated by headlands. Figures 1 to 3 illustrate typical features of the coastline.
