Oyster Fields

One of the most unique places we saw during our stay in St Malo was Cancale – the town itself wasn’t large but the tide was receding on the coast, revealing the oyster fields that make the region famous.

The workmen were down there as soon as the tide was low enough – in a few hours, they would be back out again.

It was really fascinating to see the tide go out so rapidly – it took only half an hour for the frames to be fully exposed!
