At low tide, put on your boots and your striped jersey and take a net to go shore fishing. On the seaside, on the sand, still humid, and in between rocks, you can find shellfish and crustaceans. This adventure needs you to keep an eye on the small shrimps that slip as the river flows and to remain curious and find cockles, clams and other shellfish hidden under the rocks.


Before your trip, check the weather forecast, the tide schedule and the rules. Gathering fish by hand is forbidden on the beach of Villerville. Every beach has its own regulations. Check the existing regulations on the website of Pêche à Pied Calvados.
