At the water's edge

At the beach of Villers-sur-Mer

Villers-sur-Mer beach is at the center of the world… It is the first French town to be crossed by the Greenwich Meridian! The seaside resort also bears witness to the heyday with its picturesque villas along the beach. Special feature of this beach: the Black Cow Cliffs, a geological curiosity dating from the Jurassic and Cretaceous 4,5 km long and 100 meters high.
For the less passionate about history, the beach is the site of many summer events including the famous Sable Show festival and sports tournaments throughout the summer!
