On one side, the sea as far as the eye can see, on the other a row of seaside villas, built in the second half of the XNUMXth century.

The Villers-sur-Mer dike stretches for 800 meters between the Pôle Nautique de Villers-Blonville and the Meridien de Greenwich.
On the east side of the dike (towards Blonville-sur-mer), you will pass by a small esplanade indicating the Méridien de Greenwich. Villers-sur-Mer is the first French city to be crossed by the Méridien. Symbolized on the ground by a line and a projection, the longitude at this location is exactly 0!
At the end of the promenade, on the Pôle Nautique de Villers-Blonville side, you will arrive at the foot of the Vaches Noires cliffs, a geological and paleontological treasure. 100 meters high, they stretch for nearly 4,5 km between Villers-sur-Mer and Houlgate. They originate from the accumulation of marine sediment deposits from the Jurassic (about 160 million years ago) and the Cretaceous (about 100 million years ago). In these different geological layers many marine and dinosaur fossils have been discovered.

Meet at Paléospace l'Odyssée to discover the history of the Greenwich Meridian and learn to recognize the different fossils from Norman rocks.
