Fishing port and oyster farming centre, Cancale is renowned for its flat oysters that are enjoyed by all lovers of seafood. Situated in the Mont-Saint-Michel bay, Cancale is a seaside resort where it is good to:

  • Walk on the quays and piers of the little harbour of La Houle;
  • Stroll on the Douaniers footpath;
  • Relax on its beaches;
  • Taste its famous oysters.

From the top of the tower of the church, the view of Cancale, its port, its beaches and the Mont-Saint-Michel bay is superb.
