Viewpoints in Cancale
The Tip of the Grouin
Near the bay of Mont Saint Michel, you'll find this rock outcrop, the tip of the Grouin. It's the perfect observatory to see on the Breton coast, especially its plant and animal life. To get there you'll have to walk, and on the way you'll see lots of trees, flowers, rocks and the sound of birds around us. It is a destination for the more adventurous. Refrain sedentary. From the most outgoing out everything you can see the sea and the coast at its fullest. A gift for our eyes, that daily gains greater number of admirers for its stunning cliffs and lush vegetation. From the top you can see the profile of Mont St.-Michel Abbey. Their roofs slate weevils as needles skyward make its sunsets among the most bucolic of France.
Villages in Cancale
Cancale is a coastal village close to Saint Malo. They call it oyster capital of Brittany. The town itself has many attractions, this "interesting" town is small and does not cover much coastline. It has a small sandy bay enclosed by dykes that keep the waves down. It is amazing to see the bay at high and low tide. In one case seems to be any port, but then boats are just stuck in the sand. The boats have no keel and can easily lopsidedly turn over. The hull of the boat is completely flat, ready to spend hours seated on the sand. The visit is full gastronomic pleasure; locals and tourists come here to eat their fill of fresh oysters. At the entrance of the street, just to the left there is a small hill that leads to the square. Here the oysters come every day via tractors transporting them through the muddy route, 200 meters behind from the hundreds of cages in the bay. There are a dozen stalls, and the prices are quite similar. Then you can choose the size of the oyster, which affects the price. You are given a plastic tray with a lemon. Now we just need to open your mouth and drop in this gelatinous delight. Half a dozen, medium size cost about 8 € if I remember correctly. If you wish for more comfort when enjoying the seafood you can go to any restaurant in town, all specialized in seafood.
