We cycled the 10 or so minutes along a safe cycle path to this beach a couple of times. It is sandy and convenient and there's a beach cafe selling snacks, drinks and ice creams. It's not a very pretty beach but it's long and...More

watch the ships roll lazily in, and watch the ships roll lazily away, this is a sandy beach, suitable for kids, there is parking opposite a road that isn't as busy as its size suggests. We preferred this to Trouville

We walked out along to the point in an effort to get excercise which achieved our intention. The walk is interesting in so far as you can watch the lock gates opening and closing allowing access to and from the Seine. As you walk out...More

The beach is an immense emptiness of sand, with great views of the harbor of Le Havre. Strolling up steam the river will give you views of the Pont de Nomandie. Recommended for a nice walk. Easy parking connected to the beach by a pedestrian...More

A strange beach with a view of the industrial city of Le Havre. Not really a swimming beach but good for searching for dead clams! The tides. Come in and out so you have to be careful of the rising water.

It is a long plage, very clean (at the time i was there). Beautifull nature if you can avoid seeing the great port of Le Havre on the other side.

I did not know about this beach area. I was just taking a evening walk along the lovely park. I arrived at sunset so I didn't have a lot of time. But this was really a nice walk for those who love nature

Good sandy beach, great with kids. However it is forbidden to swim when the tide is low because of dangerous stream- so check the tides. Also really terrible views of Le Havre industrial harbour. Worth driving down to Trouville.
