Sainte-Marguerite-sur-Mer Beach

A lovely walk in any season

Colossal cliffs as far as the eye can see

The superb panoramic views from this beach are sure to astound you. On your left, the white cliffs of the Alabaster Coast and, on the right, the darker bluffs of Cape Ailly…

Take a walk

A healthy dose of salty sea air

Sainte-Marguerite-sur-Mer boasts a lovely beach covered with pebbles – and with sand at low tide – which is lined by a few shops tucked away in pretty cabins made of natural wood. The oceanfront is a particularly great setting for a walk in any season. Along the promenade, you will also find a small playground for children.

Make sure you stop by the market in Sainte-Marguerite-sur-Mer, where local producers will have you salivating. And don’t miss out on the nearby fish market and fishermen in Quiberville. You will surely have a chance to watch a boat coming in from the ocean and a tractor heading down to the water, accompanied by a flock of seagulls flying overhead. A very pleasant tableau, indeed.

A little piece of advice: don’t hesitate to take shelter from the wind behind the break. Otherwise, make sure you don’t leave before climbing up the path leading away from the beach. After just a few minutes’ walk, you will enjoy breathtaking panoramic views. It will surely make you want to do the Cape Ailly hike

A playground, petanque pitch, picnic tables and showers are at your disposal!

Dogs on leads are allowed on the beach, outside the summer period (15 June to 15 September).

A bunker on the beach

An instagramable spot

You can go and see a bunker from the Second World War which literally fell onto the beach and landed on one end. Now a part of the local scenery, it sticks out of the beach some 30 metres from the cliffs.
