Bordered by the rivers Aven and Bélon, the town of Riec-sur-Bélon is the capital of the famous flat oyster: the Bélon oyster.
It is here that Mélanie Rouat concocted her famous recipes like creamed lobster or roasted clams. Stop and visit one of the oyster farms for an unforgettable tasting session overlooking the sea.
Once on the river banks, one succumbs to the poetry of the landscapes and to the radiance of the rias which changes with the tides and throughout the day. When using the GR34 trail, you will encounter cosy harbours and coves and sample some of the local heritage.
The name Riec-sur-Bélon comes from Riok, a 6th century Breton Saint and from Bélon which is the name of the river bordering the town.
