Deauville Beach, Deauville

4.1
#1 of 19 in Things to do in Deauville
Located on what locals refer to as the "Parisian Riviera," Deauville Beach remains a prominent landmark of this seaside resort. The most notable features of the sandy beach are colorful parasols and a 1920s boardwalk lined with art deco changing booths. Notice how every booth bears the name of a film star--not surprising, given that the town hosts the American Film Festival. Sports enthusiasts can choose between tennis, volleyball, basketball, and soccer facilities; go speed sailing, kayaking, windsurfing on the water; or horseback ride along the shore. Those with a love for laps can swim in the seawater Olympic pool. Plan to visit Deauville Beach during your Deauville vacation using our convenient Deauville trip planner .

  • The beach stretches for miles, or Kms, it it is cleaned every day with the appropriate tractor type machines. The part I saw was not dog-friendly although they may have sections which are.  more »
  • It is without a doubt the iconic Boardwalk of Deauville. We walked the boards this weekend several times and the last time this morning under a light drizzle. It's a little sad at the end of season but still romantic and invigorating. A must.

  • The beach itself is beautiful... Vast expanse of sand with a wonderful blue sea dominated by the majestic Royal Barrière. It's a mythical ride, which symbolizes the dream and the luxury of the past century. I was expecting something more glamorous... Small homes on behalf of celebrities should be repainted or refreshed... The colors are darkened... In General, in this end of September, I find the promenade lack of colours, amenities (decorations, green) that remove this impression of "bland" due in my opinion to color dark walls and wooden floor... I am not sure that the same ride in a less prestigious city would meet with the same success. In short... Nice... Good looking.. Nice... but could still be improved.

  • Good place to go with kids. Beach umbrellas to rent for around 20 Euro. The beach sand is mixed with shells.. Be sure to take some beach sandles or water shoes, the shells along the sand beach will hurt. Sun shine from the land side in the mornings.
  • Very nice place to see on working days in France & not so hot wether. Especially good for having late breakfast (to take wit you) with an atmospheric view & sound. And a relaxing 15 minutes after it.
  • Vast sandy beach and boardwalks with beautiful architecture along the seafront including a Casino
  • Long beautiful beach. Not too many parking places but one can usually find one. Parking is relatively expensive.
  • Perfect beach. Beautiful day!
