A stroll on the Côte de Nacre

To make the most of the sea air in peace and quiet, there is nothing better than setting down your towel on the sandy beaches of Caen-la-Mer. A spot of sandcastle building for some, a chance to take it easy for others. A real holiday feeling! Take the time to enjoy a walk along the endless beaches and see the famous small bathing cabins, the symbols of the Côte de Nacre sea front. For a great wellness experience, head for the Ouistreham thalassotherapy centre! At the Thalazur Thalassotherapy Centre, facing the sea, an ultra-relaxing programme awaits you. Massages, balneotherapy, sauna, hammam, sea-water pool… What more could anyone want?

Fall for our gourmet addresses

Holidays are also a great time to try some tempting local specialities! And nobody will say no to our traditional snacks with waffles, ice creams or cakes. Whether you prefer shellfish, Normandy specialities or tapas on the sunny terraces, you will find plenty of bars and restaurants on the coast. The opportunity to share a great meal at the waterside!

A weekend at the sea is also an opportunity to taste a plate of oysters and a good glass of white wine!
