This is the first reason for Deauville's existence, the one that gave birth to it in 1860: a city where you can enjoy the benefits of seawater, the richest of all mineral waters! After admiring the coastline from its famous boards, dive in and enjoy!
Energizing: walk with your feet in the water from the beach of Deauville to the beach of Bénerville and back.
Unusual and warm: the January 1st bath every year at 12pm in front of the nautical center, the spot to wish each other a happy new year.
Sporting : the Deauville triathlon is its sea courses, every year in June.

Quality & safety

The quality of the bathing water at Deauville beach is monitored by the Coeur Côte Fleurie Community of Municipalities, which is responsible for preserving the coastal ecosystem. It was one of the first French public authorities to commit to a bathing water certification process, an initiative that was rewarded in 2010 with the certification (by Bureau Véritas) of its management system and has since been renewed. During the summer, you will find all the information you need about water quality at the first aid station located on the Planches. For more information, please visit the website of the Community Coeur Côte Fleurie.

Sea water at 28°c at the Olympic pool

In Deauville, we love the sea so much that we capture it to fill the Olympic pool: the water of its basin is pumped off the coast and heated to 28°C. Under a vault that captures the sun and light - designed by the architect Roger Taillibert, it is the gathering place of 85,000 swimmers each year. It is also one of the two pools of the Thalasso of Deauville, chosen for the benefits of seawater on the body.

Bathing at 28°C

An Olympic seawater pool


It is 550 meters long and 300 meters deep. It is indicated on land by large white and red masts, and at sea by yellow buoys. In July and August, eight lifeguards holding the Brevet National de Sécurité et de Sauvetage Aquatique and three C.R.S. monitor the beach.The monitoring device was strengthened in 2014 by the purchase of a mobile aid station to organize a monitoring near the water.

Accessibility: a Tiralo is available for people with reduced mobility for easy access to the water.
