the romantic

Two kilometers of beach, 450 umbrellas, 450 cabins, sports fields, a children's club, an Olympic-size swimming pool, a leisure park, 22 shops: Deauville beach has something for everyone. Immortalized by Claude Lelouch in the film "Un homme et une femme", its Art Deco cabins seduce lovers, vacationers, bathers, sportsmen, horsemen or jockeys all year long.

The must-haves

Along the Boards and their Art Deco atmosphere (1923)

It is one of the most mythical places in Deauville. Built in 1923, the Planks border the Pompeian Baths and its 450 Art Deco cabins. They extend over 643 meters and are made of azobe wood. This set, signed Charles Adda, is inspired by the models of Antiquity while being part of the modernity by clear lines, the use of concrete punctuated with mosaics. The lices are marked with the names of directors and actors invited each year to the American Film Festival. And it has been going on since 1975!

Rent a parasol or an Art Deco cabin

The parasol from Deauville is probably the most photographed parasol in the world with its five colors. The cabins and umbrellas can be rented at the Etablissement des Bains de Mer.

The Park of the Lais de Mer

After the Promenade des Planches, go behind the Promenade Michel d'Ornano to the Parc des Lais de Mer, a vast four-hectare beachfront park that has become the favorite playground of bathers, vacationers and athletes. People meet there to stroll, but above all to freely enjoy the skate park and the sports trail, which is being reinvented and is gradually seeing the arrival of new equipment facing the sea: push & pull, street workout, elliptical bike... Lovers like to stop at the "Garden of Hearts" to hang a padlock and perhaps even exchange oaths, promises and secrets. What about you?

Sit under an umbrella

They settled on the beach of Deauville in 1875. In the 1930s, they abandoned their stripes to establish themselves in five colors with their skirts tied around the peak. Probably one of the most photographed in the world, the Deauville parasol is not for sale anywhere. Every year, they come out of the city's workshops, which manufacture, repair and pamper them for rental. A municipal service at a low price.
Approximate price: from 15€ (the day), a parasolier (there are 14 in summer) will accompany you to untie the parasol and install you.
