Cancale is a small fishing village in the northern part of Brittany in France with a lovely bay.

In good weather, you will be able to see the world famous Mont Saint Michel in the bay. When the tide is out, the monastery of Mont St. Michel can be easily reached by bike via a scenic coastal road if you like pedaling. While it is not to be missed, it is not the only attraction in the region. Cancale is also a small hop to Saint Malo and Dinard. These two historical harbors are worth a day trip.

While staying in a Cancale hostel, you should take some time to enjoy its little fishing houses and sandy beaches. It's a great place to relax while sipping a drink. We also recommend tasting the local oysters and mussels at a bar terrace (Cancale is known as the oyster capital of Brittany) while enjoying the scenery of the fishing and sailboats. Ask the staff of your Cancale hostel for their favorite oyster farm and go visit it by bike.

Another thing your hostel in Cancale will also probably advise you about is where to sample the best hard ciders of the region. If you go for a tasting, it might be hard to bike back to your Cancale hostel unless you take a nap before setting out.

While they have sometimes the reputation of being rude, the local Britons are very friendly once you have taken the step to have a casual chat with them. So if you want to know the real rural Brittany you should reserve a bed in a hostel in Cancale and take a bike around the region so you can get a good taste of both the countryside and the seaside.
