The 4 kilometre-long fine sandy beach in Cabourg is the ideal place to make the most of the seafront. It is bordered by an exclusively pedestrian promenade offering panoramic views over the Côte de Nacre and Côte Fleurie coasts, and Le Havre, all in charming Belle Epoque style with many late 19th century and early 20th century villas on the seafront. Nicknamed the ‘romantic beach’ Cabourg beach unveils its many facettes.
A truly family beach, thanks to its 2 ‘Famille Plus’ certified beach clubs, offering: trampolines, inflatable play structures, recreational activities, swimming lessons, etc.
Sports activities: swimming, sea wading, beach volleyball, horse riding, windsurfing, stand-up paddling, land yachting, etc.
Lively: all summer, the beach welcomes a range of activities and entertainment for visitors of all ages! Sand castle contests, sand marble tracks, ‘Les Toiles de Mer’ painting activity, beach volleyball tournaments, Dinner on the Promenade and much more!
Access is via the central lifeguard post, opposite the Grand Hôtel - a gentle slope and a polymeric mat offer disabled access to the sand. A Tiralo beach wheelchair is also available for hire at the lifeguard post.
In the high season, the bathing establishment proposes sunbeds, parasol-tents and beach cabins for hire so you can relax and make the most of the seafront!
All year, dogs are permitted on the beach opposite the dunes at the Pointe de Cabourg, at the eastern extremity of the beach. They are not permitted on any other beach zone.
