Courseulles-sur-Mer is one of the most fashionable and lively seaside resorts on the Côte de Nacre. It lives to the rhythm of its fishing port. Enjoy the central beach, on the east side, from the wooden jetty to the Cap Fun campsite. Lined with small white beach huts, it is pleasant to walk along the 600-metre-long pedestrian seawall.
Swimming, sand castles, sunbathing… to each his own!
Several events are organised during the season: wooden games, children’s club, beach volleyball, fireworks…
The beach huts can be rented from 15 June to 30 September on reservation with the entertainment service: the entertainment service on 02 31 36 17 17.
Supervised swimming: supervised beach in July and August.
Showers: Two shower areas, 1 changing room at the landing esplanade, under the Crémaillère terrace and 1 shower/toilet cubicle at the marinas.
Toilets: open during the beach surveillance period in July and August at the aid station.
Our friends the dogs:
Dogs can be walked on a lead from the Cap Fun campsite to the Cale du Platon at Bernières-sur-Mer all year round.
However, during the period of beach surveillance (July and August), our dog friends are not allowed to access the beach, even at low tide in the eastern zone (from the pier to the riprap of the Marinas) as well as in the western zone (from the riprap of the outer harbour exit channel to the limit of Graye-sur-Mer).
On the dyke, dogs must be kept on a lead.
Don’t forget to bring a dog excrement bag! The tourist office of Courseulles-sur-Mer distributes them free of charge.
Horses: Horses are allowed outside the bathing areas at low tide.
Bicycles are not allowed on the sea wall. However, just a stone’s throw from the beach is the Vélomaritime with a cycle path along the Avenue de la Combattante and along the seafront from the Cap Fun campsite to the Parc de l’Edit. It is then possible to cycle to Bernières-sur-Mer.
Courseulles-sur-Mer is on the Vélomaritime route. This 1,500 km long cycle route from Roscoff to Dunkirk passes through mythical sites such as the D-Day landing beaches, Mont-Saint-Michel and the cliffs of Etretat.
Access for people with disabilities: Tiralo available at the lifeguard station only during the beach surveillance period. There is a carpet for access to the beach.
