An oyster tasting
The entire peninsula swarms with oyster huts – each more lovely than the last! We absolutely recommend the Cabane du Mimbeau at the end of the narrow canal: on their wonderful terrace overlooking the water with the Pyla dune just opposite, you can retire inside (in case of bad weather) to taste oysters, whelk, prawns and pate, all washed down with a delicious glass of white wine, much the same as the menu at the newly opened Cabane d’Hortense, little sister of the famous Hortense restaurant, which offers the same products that you can taste outside by the waters edge or inside – if it rains!
At l’Herbe, the prettiest of all the villages on the peninsula, don’t miss out on Kikoyou, which is right on the beach.
Finally, the trendiest of these huts has to be the Canfouine au Canon: on a wooden terrace dominating the beach, multi-coloured chairs and vintage furniture bring a touch of art-deco. On the menu: oysters, whelk, pate, prawns and white wine – as per usual!
