Cancale

Cancale, small coastal city located a few kilometers away from Saint-Malo, is well-known for its oysters as well as its fishing harbor. Indeed, this fishing town is famous for the shallfish you can find there. When the tide is going down, the oyster farms appear on about 365 hectares. The Cancale oyster is liked by people for its salty taste, given by the wealth of the Mont Saint-Michel bay.

 

The "Sentier des Douaniers"

Above the harbor, the "Sentier des Douaniers", is pure hapiness for walkers. For instance, it connects Cancale to the "Pointe du Grouin". This path offers beautiful views on the Mont Saint-Michel and its bay.
