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 skate park is brand new: in molded concrete, it consists of a "bowl" and a "street" on an area of ​​approximately 500m².
Behind the Sea and Sport club. Free access.

After the Promenade des Planches, go behind the Michel d'Ornano promenade towards the Parc des Lais de Mer, a vast four-hectare beachfront park that has become the preferred playground for swimmers, holidaymakers and sportsmen. We meet there for a walk, but above all to freely enjoy the sports course and the skate park. Lovers like to stop at the "Garden of Hearts" to hang a padlock and maybe even exchange oaths, promises and secrets.
