Beach of Villers sur mer

Beach, Monitored swimming beach

Place Mermoz



The beach of Villers-sur-Mer is at the centre of the world… It’s the first French city to be crossed by the Greenwich Meridian! Dykes are perfect to have a relaxing walk and contemplate the landscape. To the North-East, you’ll see Cap de la Hève and its rotating lighthouse; to the North-West, you’ll enjoy the Vaches Noires cliffs from the beach. The seaside resort reminds the Belle Epoque with picturesque villas going along the beach. Particularity of the beach: the Vaches Noires cliffs, 4.5 km long and 100 m high, dating back to the Jurassic and Cretaceous eras.
If you are not fond of history, the beach also hosts several summer events, including the famous Festival Sable Show and sports tournaments are organized all summer long!

The beach is accessible from the Avenue de la République going along the beach, as well as from the Rue Michel d’Ornano and the Rue du Général Leclerc. As these two roads are narrow, it’s better to access from the Avenue de la République.
You can find parking places on the Avenue de la République and in the perpendicular roads or even behind the Casino Tranchant, Place du Lieutenant Fernand Fanneau. A pay and display car park is also accessible from Place Jean Mermoz, situated in front of the Tourism Office. Some more free parking places are accessible from the residential areas, situated some roads away from the sea.
The access to animals is forbidden on the beaches from April 1st to September 30th.
Outside this schedule, dogs are allowed at low tide and must be kept on a leash.
The beaches of Villers-sur-Mer are supervised from July 1st to September 1st without interruption from 11:30 am to 6:30 and from May 1st to July 1st on weekends and festive days from 11:30 am to 6:30 pm.
