Located on Juno Beach, the Canadian sector of the D-Day Landing beaches, Bernières-sur-Mer is a prime resort for discovering the whole region.
Just 20km from Caen, the regional capital (Mémorial visitor centre, medieval castle, Men’s Abbey and Ladies Abbey), the medieval city of Bayeux (Bayeux Tapestry, Notre-Dame Cathedral, historic town centre), close to Arromanches (vestiges of the artificial harbour built after the D-Day Landings), and less than an hour from Lisieux (sanctuary and pilgrimage destination), together with major stud farms and racecourses (Caen, Cabourg, Deauville), you can discover all the diversity of Normandy’s heritage.
Nearby, you are sure to appreciate the gentle way of life in one of the Côte de Nacre coast’s thalassotherapy centres or casinos, together with the possiblity to indulge in horse rides on the beach and a tour of the lovely marina in Courseulles-sur-Mer, 2km away.
Over a weekend, a short break or a longer holiday, Bernières is a quiet yet far from dormant seaside resort. You can indulge in a whole range of activities, have fun around the many open-air events and join some of the guided tours our team will be delighted to tell you about.
