Campsite information

Camping Le Grand Large

Lovely beach, sand dunes, rugged cliffs on the horizon and right beside the sea in Normandy. It's not difficult to fall in love with setting of campsite Le Grand Large. The view is stunning, and so is the campsite. Highly recommended for explorers, peace seekers and beach lovers. And for little children who will just love to play in the biggest sandpit in France.

  • The dune area beside the campsite is particularly special and has been made into a car free play area for the children.
  • From the dune area the beach is accessible via a small path. You only have to cross the dune. The sandy beach is quite wide here with steep cliffs on both sides.
  • Fancy a dip? Jump into the modern, partly covered swimming pool at the campsite. There's also a separate children's pool with a screen to keep the wind off.
  • Playground, tennis, jeu de boules, bouncy cushion - it's all there. The centre that houses the bar, snackbar, shop and entertainment area has been completely renovated. It's really nice.
  • The campsite owner has placed small benches around the dunes and around the campsite, where you can sit in peace and enjoy a romantic sunset.
