Chemin de Ronde, Cancale

#3 of 13 in Things to do in Cancale
Also called "allure," Chemin de Ronde is a raised protected walkway behind a castle battlement along the coast. Builders devised the round path as a walkway to allow defenders to patrol the tops of ramparts protected by the battlements or a parapet, so they could position themselves to shoot or drop objects on enemies. This romantic walking path offers sweeping panoramic views of the coast and many opportunities to meet locals and association members who care for this ancient trail.

  • Do off-season because under World / Wild Coast where houses are discreet behind the hedges or walls that descends from the South, the view of the port of Cancale is great you can see mont St Michel on the horizon to the East by time clear Vo IR at low tide as the huge oysters a few private roads noted Park. Access to the difficult beaches (coves)

  • This path of the Customs officers is beautiful and very wild. Think about taking good shoes because very muddy at times (we are in winter!) and growing often! Takes 2 hours to get to the tip of the Grouin Cancale. We did not expect so many kilometers and returned by the Interior in only 1 hour, despite some passages in edge of road it is done well. In short we had a great afternoon to do this ride.

  • At the peak of the Grouin Cancale, the coastal path is a walk great to do in any season and well equipped winter.
