CANCALE – Le Port de la Houle

Cancale, on the Emerald Coast, first became famous for its oysters which were supplied to royal tables in the 17th and 18th centuries. Today, the seafront of the ‘oyster capital’ is packed with restaurants offering the pied de cheval flat variety, sometimes so substantial they are eaten with a knife and fork. The town is not as pretty as some, but the scale and variety of the seafood make a very pleasant lunchtime visit. The walk from the famous Cancale rock up to the Pointe du Grohin gives superb views of Mont St Michel on a clear day.
