Protected and well-organized, the departmental natural area of the Parc des Graves offers 800 m of pedestrian paths, resting benches, picnic tables, games for children and a panoramic viewpoint that offers a very nice view on the sea.

Wild vegetable species, remains of ornamental garden of a past era, as well as recent flower beds and duck ponds. The "Hôtel des Graves” currently hosts ducks and moorhens. The Park also hosts six goats, called “ditch goats” and nicknamed “bramble eaters” for their ability to eat any types of vegetables. Their objective: cutting back all the area and stopping the proliferation of brambles and invasive vegetation on the site. More recently, five Warré beehives, homes of black bees of the Calvados department, have been placed in the park to contribute to their repopulation.
