Behind the beach huts, walkers like to stroll along the seawalls, looking for iodized air. From Villers-sur-Mer to Villerville, in concrete or azobe wood, each one has its own atmosphere.


The Villerville dike, a walk on the side of the cliffs

The 450 meter long Villerville dike allows you to walk below the village built on the cliffs, along the beach at low tide or at the water's edge when the tide is high. First built in 1810 in wood to protect the land that was sliding towards the sea, it was rebuilt in 1920 in concrete as we know it today.

Walking on the boards of Deauville

It is one of the symbols of Deauville. Les Planches were built in 1923. On one side, they border the sea baths built the same year in an Art Deco style, and on the other, the long white sandy beach planted from April to September with the equally symbolic multicolored parasols of Deauville. Made of exotic Malagasy wood, azobe, which is reputed to be rot-proof, the Planks were originally installed over a length of 444 meters. Today, after successive extensions, they extend over 643 meters.

The dike of Villers-sur-Mer, between sea and villas

The Villers-sur-Mer seawall extends over 800 meters between the Villers-Blonville Nautical Center and the Greenwich Meridian. Villers-sur-Mer is the first French town to be crossed by the Greenwich Meridian. Symbolized on the ground by a line and an advance, the longitude at this place is exactly 0! On one side, the sea as far as the eye can see, on the other, a string of seaside villas built in the second half of the 19th century.
