La plage est accessible de 6 h à 19 h pour des usages dynamiques et dans le respect des règles édictées. Située à 500 mètres du centre-ville, la plage du Havre propose 2 kilomètres de sable et galets entre Le Havre et Sainte-Adresse.

The promenade designed by the talented landscaper Alexandre Chemetoff in 1994 is an invitation to stroll, while a walk near the seawall on stormy days offers a spectacular show to those who dare.

Feel like settling down with a good book?
For several years now, the Seine Maritime department has been providing “reading on the beach”  for young and old alike.

And don’t forget the children, who have playgrounds all year round, as well as various other facilities in summer.

Accessible Le Havre

The city of Le Havre, a member of the “Ville Handicap” charter, provides disabled people with free facilities and services adapted to the beach.
Of particular note is the free loan of “tiralos” (beach-friendly wheelchairs) for access to the Bains Maritimes.
