Cancale, jewel of the Emerald Coast, is a pretty fishing village combining all the pleasures of the coast. It looks across to Mont-Saint-Michel and is the perfect place to enjoy everything the sea has to offer, with a number of activities in the Bay itself: sailing, fishing, exploring the marine environment... swimming, visits to the Malouinières manor houses, walks along the Sentier des Douaniers coast path and, of course, the harbour at La Houle, the best place to enjoy oysters.
The meeting point of Breton and Norman culture, Cancale is not far from the Pointe du Grouin, where panoramic views stretch from Cap Fréhel to Granville, the Chausey Islands and the Channel Islands of Jersey & Guernsey. Opposite lies the Ile des Landes, a bird reserve where you can see cormorants, gulls and other seabirds.
As you walk towards Mont Saint-Michel, visible on clear days, the coast is dotted with oyster farms, giving the shore its unique appearance.
