Calvados' immense fine sandy beaches offer a multitude of activities to enjoy.

The Calvados coast stretches along a distance of 75 miles, via several seaside resorts, many of which boast splendid, or even famous, villas.

The Normandy beaches are a pleasure all year long, by high or by low tide. At high tide, try your hand at a choice of water sports, enjoy a pleasant swim or simply relax and unwind to the sound of the lapping waves. At low tide, don your rubber boots and set off in search of our local shellfish, or simply play with the kids on the long stretches of fine sand…

A natural site- Omaha Beach 

The 4 miles of Omaha Beach offer a diversity of different environments. At Colleville-sur-Mer, it unveils its wildest landscapes, across the dunes and verdant clifftops. In Saint-Laurent-sur-Mer and Vierville-sur-Mer, it offers the perfect base to enjoy with the family, over a swim, a sand castle contest or simply a moment's respite... In the summer, Omaha's 3 beaches are watched over by life guards.
