Our friends the horsemen are welcome to enjoy the sandy beachfront rides on the Cœur de Nacre

Normandy land of horses has always favoured the reception and practice of horse riding. In this section you will be able to find out about access and good practice rules for horse riding.

Note : Even if the regulations of the municipalities may vary, all of them allow horses on the beach, on the wet sand:

At low tide outside the supervised bathing areas.
Access at the bridle path, next to the campsite.

During the period from 15 June to 15 September, horses are only allowed on the beach at low tide, before 11.30am and after 6.30pm. Mounted horses may only go down onto the beach beyond the east of the riprap between the “Main Beach” and the “Unsupervised Beach” via the Edit slipway.

Horse riding is strictly forbidden in the dunes all year round.

At low tide.
Access to the Voie du Débarquement.

At low tide outside the supervised swimming areas.
