"Where Marie Antoinette got her oysters" Cancale by ryuhome

Cancale Travel Guide: 16 reviews and 63 photos

A charming stop between St Malo and Saint Michel

This is a nice stop when you're on your way from Mount Saint Michel to St. Malo or vice versa. Besides being famous for its oyster, there're some nice waterfront stores and resturants. Too bad we came in the off season on a rainy day in the afternoon and most of the places were closed.

See the tidal difference

This place has one of the biggest tidal difference in the world, as you can see from this picture.

Oyster and Champaign makes a good combination

You can get oysters here from the stalls at about one third the price you paid at a resturant. You order by the size and they opened them for you right there.
