Carantec (Karanteg in Breton) is a commune in the Finistère department of Brittany in north-western France.
Carantec is located on the coast of the English Channel, and contains a small island within its boundaries, Île Callot. Carantec is bordered by the communes of Henvic and Taulé to the south, and is near to the town of Morlaix.
Carantec is twinned with Grand-Saconnex in Switzerland, and with Crantock in the United Kingdom.
Carantec's two primary industries are oyster farming and tourism.
Since 1926, Carantec has been classified as a "station balnéaire".
Carantec and the Bay of Morlaix have been home to oyster farming operations since 1892. Today Carantec is home to 15 oyster farms with over 700 hectares of oyster beds that produce over 6500 tons of oysters per year.
Inhabitants of Carantec are called in French Carantécois.
