After a gourmet lunch break at the "Le Coquillage, Bistrot Marin" owned by the famous Chef O. Roellinger, you will have time to stroll through the village with its lovely houses built in local schist. Continue onto the pointe du Grouin, a botanic and ornithological reserve. After a stop for a photo we will continue our route along the Emeraude coast to reach Saint-Malo in the late afternoon.
