This summer, head for the seaside resorts of Caen! Stay at the Best Western Royal Hotel and treat yourself to a beautiful iodine interlude, as a couple, with friends or with the family. For young or old, beginners or experts, discover a varied range of water sports.
Sailboat - Ouistreham Riva-Bella beach
For thrill-seekers, head to the beach at Ouistreham Riva-Bella. This is the beach where you will find your happiness! It is also very well suited to beginners and younger children.
Catamaran - Lion-sur-mer
Looking for a relaxing ride on the water? Lion-sur-mer, next to the Confessional cliff, is the perfect place. On your catamaran, look up and admire the scenery around you!
Paddle - Colleville-Montgomery beach
Do you want to take a break from paddling or try this activity for the first time? We recommend the beach of Colleville-Montgomery. Preserved and the most sheltered of the coast, this beach is perfect to start paddling quietly.
Kitesurfing - Hermanville-sur-mer beach
Are you more of an intense sports fan? Then head for the beach at Hermanville-sur-mer. With a kite in the wind and a board ready to jump, the spot is perfect for a great day of kitesurfing!
A walk by the sea?
After your activity, take the time to admire the seaside villas of Lion-sur-mer in Hermanville-sur-mer. This seafront is home to sumptuous 19th century villas, including La Bluette, which is listed as a Historic Monument.
