The oyster market
At the heart of the exceptional site of the bay of Mont Saint-Michel, the know-how of the oyster farmers in raising oysters has allowed the town of Cancale to be included as a cultural heritage site of France.
Leave your car at the entrance to Cancale at the free parking du port and enjoy a trip along the port de la Houle to meet the oyster producers of Cancale, on foot or in a tuk tuk.
