Le Vivier-sur-Mer / Cancale
Le Vivier-sur-Mer
This part of the route, which has the beautiful bay as a backdrop, takes you from one shellfish haven to another: Vivier sur Mer today is still host to many families working and trading with shellfish, while Cancale is hugely popular with tourists for its mussel beds, restaurants and oyster vendors.
57 m 85 m


From Vivier sur Mer to the north of St. Benoit des Ondes, stay alert to traffic on the RD 155.  When you come to the shellfish farm and karting track, take the small quiet road of Le Clos until St. Méloir des Ondes.  Be vigilant when crossing the RD 876 on the east entry into St. Méloir, and when crossing the RD 155 to the north.  The small, quiet ‘bocage’ (hedged) roads lead you to the junction between Cancale and St. Malo.  Take care when crossing the RD 76 towards the centre of Cancale.
