Le Havre is an important port in Normandy France, and although the town has plenty to see, Le Havre beach is one of the biggest appeals.
Stretching for about 2,500 yards, it's a short walk from the town center and holds a coveted EU Blue Flag for cleanliness and safety. Many of the city's best hotels, shops and restaurants are located on the adjoining promenade and the beach itself is popular for windsurfing, sailing and kite boarding.
Nearby is the largest skating park in France, as well as a children's play area, volleyball courts and pitches on which to play the much loved French game of boules.Places nearby:
