Renowned for its fresh sea air and invigorating bathing, the Côte de Nacre boasts sandy beaches alongside walkable dykes lined with the famous white beach huts.

Why not resist the sea and its call? We offer you advice and choice through a wide range of activities that will delight young and old.


Thrills and spills are more your thing: the sailing clubs and schools offer various water sports tailored to your level and needs: catamarans, dinghies, windsurfing, sand yachting, funboard, sea kayaks, kitesurf, stand up paddle…go ahead, explore our Water sports section now!

Beach fisheries: It is indeed the favourite activity of holidaymakers at low tide! When the sea goes out, you can explore the shoreline; a vast expanse of sand, rocks and pools appear, great for fishing on foot.

Boat trips: starting from the port of Courseulles-sur-mer, the marina welcomes you throughout the year and offers services all year round. There are more than 750 mooring spots spread throughout two areas: the Bassin Joinville and the Bassin plaisance.

Don’t miss the fishermen returning each morning, along the marina at Courseulles-sur-mer.

Like to relax: laze under a parasol on one of Cœur de Nacre’s sandy beaches.
Well-being: enjoy the benefits of the seawater … and seaweed! Marine-based treatments, Turkish baths, Japanese baths, saunas… allow yourself some relaxation time at the Thalasso des 3 Mondes, the swimming pool Aquanacre or in one of the well-being establishments of Cœur de Nacre.
