Ille-et-Vilaine's coastline heads westward from Mont-Saint-Michel to an estuary 5 miles west of Dinard and includes the rocky Cote d'Émeraude and the Rance River estuary where the towns of Saint-Malo and Dinard are located.
Rennes, the department's capital, is located centrally and is situated on the Ille et Rance Canal which connects the north flowing Rance river with the Vilaine river that flows south-westerly into the Atlantic.
Oysters are still cultivated along the coast near Cancale but as the fishing industry has declined, the coastal resorts have become important tourist destinations.
Also, don't forget to visit the Saturday morning market in the medieval town of Fougeres.
