Make the most of your stay in Cancale, a coastal town in Brittany, and walk along the coastal paths to discover the breathtaking views of tree-covered cliffs and the beautiful coastal scenery. The paths along the coast are only for walkers, but you can travel elsewhere by bike. Two unmarked circuits are organised by the Tourist Office, including the Cancale Village circuit which will take you through the small neighbouring villages and the Cancale Country circuit which offers stunning views over the bay of Mont-Saint-Michel, at the end of the circuit. Visit Pointe de Grouin, a remarkable natural site located north of Cancale, to discover the scenic beauty of the Emerald Coast.
Cancale is the place to discover the region’s culinary delights. Cancale is famous for its flat oysters and their special, tangy flavour. The city is keen to retain its “Site Remarquable du Gout” (Remarkable Site of Gourmet Tastes) label and it offers oyster farm tours, gourmet boat tours or even cookery classes. You can also explore the bustling local farmers’ market which offers fresh and seasonal produce, and also go to the oyster market which is unique and specific to the town. A must when visiting Cancale, is an oyster tasting session with local producers, facing the Mont-Saint-Michel. During the summer, producers and crafts people welcome you every Thursday night to show off their unique creations and products.
