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.

Mussels and shellfish

The whole bay is famously rich in shellfish, fish and crustaceans: scallops and whelks from Granville, lobsters from Chausey Island and oysters from the Breton port of Cancale. Here also you find great stretches of wooden stakes for the cultivation of mussels, while local fisherman gather cockles at low tide and go shrimping.
