Along its northern coast, the Rhuys peninsula traces the edge of the little sea that is the Gulf of Morbihan, an immense stretch of water offering a multitude of treasures. There are numerous oyster beds to be seen here as the tides come and go, repeatedly revealing their presence then hiding them again.
An ideal way to see oyster farming at close quarters is by kayak. It is likely to be an instructive trip, especially if you encounter a brent goose, the emblem of the gulf.
And don't miss the salt pans near Saint-Armel Lasne, which have been redeveloped for production over the last ten years or so. You can wander between the evaporation and harvesting ponds on foot or by bicycle and, depending on the season, observed the region (salt workers) engaged in their precise work. Don't leave without a drop of salt for yourself!
Morbihan is a gastronomical region, and though there was a time when the Rhuys peninsula was thick with vineyards, today it has a range of culinary delights to offer, each as original as the next.
