Discover Merville-Franceville Plage

 Welcome to Merville-Franceville-Plage!

The city is one of the most beautiful variations of coastal landscapes in our magnificent Normandy Cabourg Pays d’Auge territory. Nature lovers and thrill seekers know it : our little piece of paradise, bordered on one side by the Orne and on the other by the Côte Fleurie, conceals many places where the power of the sea, the calm of the earth and sometimes a fleeting magic mix and express themselves. Come and explore our heritage of high ecological and ornithological value, our vast cultivated areas, our plateaus and our grazed marshes!

At the western end of the Côte Fleurie, this seaside resort on a human scale happily combines the dapper charm of a flowered village and the attraction of a vast sandy beach (7km), the grandeur of a site marked by history. contemporary and the conviviality of a family destination fertile in leisure activities. A kaleidoscope of endearing landscapes awaits you: a pretty marina opening onto the bay of the Orne , dunes, marine spaces and freshwater marshes, hospitable paths crisscrossing a smiling countryside.

The Pumptrack

The Pumptrack, located close to the sea, is a bitum track made up of bumps and turns, dedicated to land-sliding leisure. BMX, ROLLER, SCOOTER, SKATE…

These tracks, dotted with round obstacles and turns adapt to the level of each practitioner. The goal is not to pedal and to use obstacles, bumps and turns to gain speed.

The practitioners start on one of the 3 courses. Beginner: green track of 43 meters, intermediate: blue track of 96 meters or confirmed: red track more technical of 77 meters!

 

Beach, Sport and History

The 7 km of fine sand are suitable for long walks and clam digging and make it a very famous kite surf spot, sheltered from the dunes.

Windsurfing, canoeing, kayaking, or Hawaiian canoe… complement this plethora of marine activities that add to the many possible family land excursions. By bike along the cycle paths along the coast for tens of kilometers, they allow you to reach the city center, the port but also the magnificent bird sanctuary of the Gros Banc.

And for finishing this discovery of the territory dive into the heart of history with the visit of the Merville Battery, object of an unimaginable assault in the night of June 5 to 6, 1944.
