Two kilometers of beach, 450 parasols, 450 cabins, sports fields, a children's club, an Olympic swimming pool, a leisure park, 22 shops: Deauville beach meets all desires. Immortalized by Claude Lelouch in the film "A man and a woman", its Art Deco cabin decor seduces lovers, vacationers, swimmers, sportsmen, riders or jockeys all year round.

Not to be missed!

Along the Planches and their Art Deco atmosphere (1923)

It is one of the most legendary places in Deauville. Built in 1923, the Planches border the Bains Pompéiens establishment and its 450 Art Deco cabins. They extend over 643 meters and are made of azobé wood. This set, signed Charles Adda, is inspired by the models of Antiquity while being part of modernity with clean lines, the use of concrete punctuated with mosaics. The lists are marked with the names of the directors and actors invited each year to the American Film Festival. And it's been going on since 1975!

The Parc des Lais de Mer

After the Promenade des Planches, go behind the Promenade Michel d'Ornano towards the Parc des Lais de Mer, a vast four-hectare beachfront park that has become the favorite playground for swimmers, holidaymakers and sports enthusiasts. We meet there to walk around, but above all to freely enjoy the skate park and the sports course which is being reinvented and is gradually seeing the arrival of new equipment facing the sea: push & pull, street workout, elliptical trainer... Lovers like to stop at the "Garden of Hearts" to attach a padlock and perhaps even exchange oaths, promises and secrets. And you?
