Cancale Oyster beds

I am going through some photos we took last summer and found this one, taken in October (2011). It shows Cancale oyster beds.

At the end of the port in Cancale (Brittany, France) you can find a few stalls selling mussels (moules) and oysters (huîtres). You can eat the oysters on the beach – the sellers will open the oysters for you - or take them home. You can’t get fresher oysters! The oysters beds are only a few metres away from the stalls!

Most tourists eat them there and the beach is covered with shells!

Cancale is famous for its oysters, but also for fish and sea food.

It is about 40 min from our gite in Evran.
