Deauville Beach

Beach

Deauville beach, these are stories, those of those who have frequented Deauville for a hundred and fifty years; mythical places, the Boards, the Sun Bar, the Pompeian baths, symbols that have gone around the world, the five-color parasols, the names of the American actors on its cabins; skies painted by Dufy or Boudin, scenes of life sketched by James Rassiat, photos of the Seeberger brothers, Robert Capa and many others.
These are sports exploits at the tennis club, records broken in the Olympic swimming pool, offshore regattas, long and invigorating horseback rides on the water's edge.

Deauville beach is a large space located between the sea and Boulevard Cornuché. A space that is also called the sea lice. History has made them forever the playground of bathers, vacationers and sportsmen. To make the most of it, read this little guide and have a good time near the sea on this beautiful fine sandbank.
