Cancale is a picturesque village located 7 km from Camping des Chevrets.
Renowned for its wild flat oysters and farmed hollow oysters, Cancale offers many surprises.
Come and taste the oysters freshly harvested by the producers, or simply lemony oysters directly from the oyster market opposite the open sea, or from one of the many delicious establishments. You’ll also find a wide choice of seafood, galettes and crêpes, and other more classic menus.
Cancale is also a wonderful place for a stroll.
You can enjoy the fresh sea air as you stroll along the quays or the pier. Admire the famous oyster beds and the flat-bottomed boats that criss-cross the beach to transport the oysters, all to the rhythm of the tides.
And don’t forget to admire Cancale’s charming fishermen’s cottages!
In certain weather conditions, you’re bound to catch a glimpse of the famous Mont St Michel.
You can also take the customs path overlooking the Port de la Houle, which offers breathtaking scenery!
For the more sporty, 7km will take you to the Pointe du Grouin, a rocky point offering a unique view of the southern part of Mont Saint Michel, Chausey and Cap Frehel.
Fancy a trip out to sea? Treat yourself to a trip aboard the Cancalaise, a bisquine that can take you out for a few hours, a day or an evening to discover the marine environment, or simply for the pleasure of sailing.
In the upper town, you’ll find the church of Saint Méen, built in 1875 and listed as a historic monument. It also houses the Musée des Arts et Traditions Populaires de Cancale. Here, you’ll discover the daily life of Cancalais in days gone by: bisquines, terre neuvas, costumes, fishing and oyster farming.
You’ll also find plenty of stores to take home as souvenirs: soap factories, cookie factories, paintings, sailor clothes.
Don’t forget to visit Olivier Roellinger’s boutique, a wonderful place offering spices and oils from all over the world.
You can also stop off at Grain de Vanille, a place dedicated to sweet delights that you can taste on the spot and take home with you?
