The Underwater Road You Can Drive On Twice A Day? We Have That On Earth Too!Translate

I know it sounds unbelievable, but there is a road that you can drive on only twice a day. For a few hours. Sounds like some kind of Moses road, huh? This road is in France and it's called Passage du Gois. It connects the Gulf of Burnёf with the island of Noirmoutier. 


This crazy road gets flooded due to the rising tide and only twice a day it's not hidden beneath 13 ft (almost 4 meters) of water!

Today around 2.58 miles (around 4 km) long road is on the place of a natural passage between the mainland and the island that first time appeared on the maps in 1701. A century later (around 1840), this was already a regular road where transportation was offered as a service (on horseback or by car).  

When there is no water this road looks quite ordinary. But don’t get fooled it’s really dangerous. Especially for the adrenaline junkies. Even though there are signs on both sides of the road showing whether it is safe to start driving down that road or not, there are many adventurous drivers that think they can win a race with very fast tide. Soon enough they find themselves caught between the tides! Luckily there are elevated rescue towers all along the road which can save drivers, but not their cars.
