The Normandy beaches

Are we going to see the sea?
Changing reflections

Our corner of Seine-Maritime is bordered by the sea.

For swimming, sunbathing or simply strolling, discover beaches with character, quiet and authentic.

Consider the ripples of the waves,
Listen to the coming and going of the pebbles,
Feel the sea spray,
Let go.

The pebbles

our specialty

Welcome to the Alabaster Coast!

Here, high chalk cliffs line the coastline and beaches are covered in pebbles.

So there’s no need to bring shovels and buckets to make sandcastles; instead, we recommend you equip yourself with swimming shoes. Your experience will be all the more enjoyable!

Did you know that?

  • It is strictly forbidden to pick up pebbles!
    They are essential to the protection of our coastline and taking them away can cost you a €1,500 fine.
  • Don’t put your life in danger by walking under or too close to the edge of the cliffs, slumps are frequent.
  • It is prohibited to feed seagulls and gulls; they find their food naturally in the sea.

Our beaches

Explore charming seaside towns.

  • Fécamp and its long pebble beach labeled Pavillon Bleu, offers you something to eat, a supervised swimming area in the summer and various water activities depending on the season
  • Yport, a picturesque fishermen’s village, is popular with locals for its beach, which is sheltered from the west winds
  • Les Petites Dalles, a beach once frequented by Empress Sissi, is sought after for its tranquility and offers a supervised swimming area in summer
  • Les Grandes Dalles, a quiet beach, also attracts lovers of fishing on foot
  • Saint-Pierre-en-Port, for supervised swimming in summer

Good to know

Other beaches, not very suitable for swimming, are great places to walk if you’re traveling with your four-legged friend.

These include the valleys of Grainval; Senneville-sur-Fécamp and Vaucottes.
Be sure to keep dogs on a leash at the edge of the cliff!

The FAQ

of the little bather

  • How to equip yourself for a day at the beach?
    • Provide swimming shoes, unless you’re a regular shuffler
    • Don’t underestimate the dangers of the sun; caps and sunscreen are a must, even if the sea air makes the temperatures seem milder
    • Take water and provide a snack (fresh or dried fruit, cookies…). But beware of the gull that prowls! We remind you that our food is indigestible for these birds and it is forbidden to feed them
    • Bring a beach mattress or a deckchair to make your nap more comfortable
  • What to do with your waste?

    The best waste is the one we don’t produce.
    We invite you to choose carefully the products you use.

    Remove and carry back your trash until you find a public trash can.

    You can also take advantage of a walk to clean up the beach of some forgotten trash…
    More and more communes put at your disposal tide bins: equip yourself with gloves and pick up everything that comes from Man (butts, cans, caps, nets…)
