The walk around the headland is very pleasant. Walk across the beach, past the Potiniere restaurant (hidden in a cove), past the beach huts and there is a path to the top.
You can then walk to the Semaphore building and the lighthouse with great views.
I am constantly amazed at the empty beaches in this part of Normandy. I live in Bournemouth and the beach is always busy but in Normandy you can see for miles and not see another soul. Incredible!
Barneville-Carteret are two towns with a beaches separated by a harbour and both the beaches are fabulous with miles of golden sands. Even...
We found a terrific circular walk from cartetet through the dunes to Hatainville then followed a sweet little 4 km circuit of the dunes to a viewpoint and then across to the ruined church and then along the sentier des douniers. A wonderful walk with ever changing countryside. The cliff path is stunning!
Always wanted to sail from Gorey, so booked on the day trip to Carteret.
Ship left just after 8 for the short crossing. Arrived at a bleak concrete block. Had been told that there were not many shops, no exaggeration. Followed the crowd on the 30+ min walk to the outdoor market at Barneville, worth a visit.
Back in Carteret,...
