"Cancale - the Oyster Capital" Cancale by sue_stone

Cancale Travel Guide: 16 reviews and 52 photos

Cancale is a lovely little fishing port located on the Emerald Coast of Brittany. The town is famous for its oysters and is a great place to stop for lunch and sample some of the local produce!

On a clear day there are views across the bay to Mont St-Michel.

When driving into Cancale, instead of heading straight into town, turn off and take the scenic road that goes along the cliff edge giving you fabulous views over the town.

    Those oysters sound very edible to me!! Great pics of this scenic little spot. I was especially interested in your oyster harvest photos - they reminded me of a fish harvest I stumbled across in Praia de Mira, Portugal !
